New American Standard Bible

Chapter 15

3 Then Absalom would say to him, 'See, your claims are good and right, but you have no one to listen to you on the part of the king.' 4 Moreover, Absalom would say, 'Oh that someone would appoint me judge in the land, then every man who has a lawsuit or claim could come to me, and I would give him justice!' 5 And whenever a man approached to prostrate himself before him, he would put out his hand and take hold of him and kiss him.
King James Version

Chapter 15

3 And Absalom said unto him, See, thy matters are good and right; but there is no man deputed of the king to hear thee. 4 Absalom said moreover, Oh that I were made judge in the land, that every man which hath any suit or cause might come unto me, and I would do him justice! 5 And it was so, that when any man came nigh to him to do him obeisance, he put forth his hand, and took him, and kissed him.
Christian Standard Bible

Chapter 15

3 Absalom said to him, "Look, your claims are good and right, but the king does not have anyone to listen to you." 4 He added, "If only someone would appoint me judge in the land. Then anyone who had a grievance or dispute could come to me, and I would make sure he received justice." 5 When a person approached to pay homage to him, Absalom reached out his hand, took hold of him, and kissed him.
New Living Translation

Chapter 15

3 Then Absalom would say, 'You've really got a strong case here! It's too bad the king doesn't have anyone to hear it. 4 I wish I were the judge. Then everyone could bring their cases to me for judgment, and I would give them justice!'
5 When people tried to bow before him, Absalom wouldn't let them. Instead, he took them by the hand and kissed them.

Chapter 15

3 Entonces Absalón le decía: Mira, tu causa es buena y justa, pero nadie te va a escuchar de parte del rey. 4 Decía además Absalón: ¡Quién me nombrara juez en la tierra! Entonces todo hombre que tuviera pleito o causa alguna podría venir a mí y yo le haría justicia. 5 Y sucedía que cuando alguno se acercaba y se postraba ante él, él extendía su mano, lo levantaba y lo besaba.

3 y Absalón le aseguraba: «Tu demanda es muy justa, pero no habrá quien te escuche de parte del rey». 4 En seguida añadía: «¡Ojalá me pusieran por juez en el país! Todo el que tuviera un pleito o una demanda vendría a mí, y yo le haría justicia».
5 Además de esto, si alguien se le acercaba para inclinarse ante él, Absalón le tendía los brazos, lo abrazaba y lo saludaba con un beso.
