New American Standard Bible

Chapter 15

31 Now someone informed David, saying, 'Ahithophel is among the conspirators with Absalom.' And David said, 'LORD, please make the advice of Ahithophel foolish.'
32 It happened as David was coming to the summit, where God was worshiped, that behold, Hushai the Archite met him with his coat torn, and dust on his head. 33 And David said to him, 'If you go over with me, then you will become a burden to me. 34 But if you return to the city and say to Absalom, ‘I will be your servant, O king; even as I was your father’s servant in time past, so now I will also be your servant,’ then you can foil the advice of Ahithophel for me. 35 Are Zadok and Abiathar the priests not with you there? So it shall be that whatever you hear from the king’s house, you shall report to Zadok and Abiathar the priests.
King James Version

Chapter 15

31 And one told David, saying, Ahithophel is among the conspirators with Absalom. And David said, O LORD, I pray thee, turn the counsel of Ahithophel into foolishness. 32 And it came to pass, that when David was come to the top of the mount, where he worshipped God, behold, Hushai the Archite came to meet him with his coat rent, and earth upon his head: 33 Unto whom David said, If thou passest on with me, then thou shalt be a burden unto me: 34 But if thou return to the city, and say unto Absalom, I will be thy servant, O king; as I have been thy father's servant hitherto, so will I now also be thy servant: then mayest thou for me defeat the counsel of Ahithophel. 35 And hast thou not there with thee Zadok and Abiathar the priests? therefore it shall be, that what thing soever thou shalt hear out of the king's house, thou shalt tell it to Zadok and Abiathar the priests.

Chapter 15

31 Then someone reported to David, "Ahithophel is among the conspirators with Absalom.""Lord," David pleaded, "please turn the counsel of Ahithophel into foolishness! "
32 When David came to the summit where he used to worship God, Hushai the Archite was there to meet him with his robe torn and dust on his head. 33 David said to him, "If you go away with me, you'll be a burden to me, 34 but if you return to the city and tell Absalom, 'I will be your servant, Your Majesty! Previously, I was your father's servant, but now I will be your servant,' then you can counteract Ahithophel's counsel for me. 35 Won't the priests Zadok and Abiathar be there with you? Report everything you hear from the palace to the priests Zadok and Abiathar.
New Living Translation

Chapter 15

31 When someone told David that his adviser Ahithophel was now backing Absalom, David prayed, 'O LORD, let Ahithophel give Absalom foolish advice!'
32 When David reached the summit of the Mount of Olives where people worshiped God, Hushai the Arkite was waiting there for him. Hushai had torn his clothing and put dirt on his head as a sign of mourning. 33 But David told him, 'If you go with me, you will only be a burden. 34 Return to Jerusalem and tell Absalom, 'I will now be your adviser, O king, just as I was your father's adviser in the past.' Then you can frustrate and counter Ahithophel's advice. 35 Zadok and Abiathar, the priests, will be there. Tell them about the plans being made in the king's palace,

Chapter 15

31 Alguien dio aviso a David, diciendo: Ahitofel está entre los conspiradores con Absalón. Y David dijo: Oh SEÑOR, te ruego, haz necio el consejo de Ahitofel. 32 Sucedió que mientras David se acercaba a la cumbre donde se adoraba a Dios, he aquí, Husai arquita salió a su encuentro con su manto desgarrado y polvo sobre la cabeza. 33 Y David le dijo: Si pasas conmigo, entonces me serás una carga. 34 Pero si regresas a la ciudad, y dices a Absalón: “Seré tu siervo, oh rey; como en el pasado he sido siervo de tu padre, así ahora seré tu siervo”, entonces harás nulo el consejo de Ahitofel en favor mío. 35 ¿Y no están allí contigo Sadoc y Abiatar los sacerdotes? Por tanto, todo lo que oigas de la casa del rey lo comunicarás a los sacerdotes Sadoc y Abiatar.

Chapter 15

31 En eso le informaron a David que Ajitofel se había unido a la conspiración de Absalón. Entonces David oró: «SEÑOR, haz que fracasen los planes de Ajitofel».
32 Cuando David llegó a la cumbre del monte, donde se rendía culto a Dios, se encontró con Husay el arquita, que en señal de duelo llevaba las vestiduras rasgadas y la cabeza cubierta de ceniza.
33 David le dijo: ?Si vienes conmigo, vas a serme una carga. 34 Es mejor que regreses a la ciudad y le digas a Absalón: “Majestad, estoy a su servicio. Antes fui siervo de su padre, pero ahora lo soy de usted”. De ese modo podrás ayudarme a desbaratar los planes de Ajitofel. 35 Allí contarás con los sacerdotes Sadoc y Abiatar, así que manténlos informados de todo lo que escuches en el palacio real.

32 Cuando David llegó a la cumbre del monte para adorar allí a Dios, he aquí Husai arquita que le salió al encuentro, rasgados sus vestidos, y tierra sobre su cabeza. 33 Y le dijo David: Si pasares conmigo, me serás carga. 34 Mas si volvieres a la ciudad, y dijeres a Absalón: Rey, yo seré tu siervo; como hasta aquí he sido siervo de tu padre, así seré ahora siervo tuyo; entonces tú harás nulo el consejo de Ahitofel. 35 ¿No estarán allí contigo los sacerdotes Sadoc y Abiatar? Por tanto, todo lo que oyeres en la casa del rey, se lo comunicarás a los sacerdotes Sadoc y Abiatar.

31 Y dieron aviso a David, diciendo: Ahitofel también está con los que conspiraron con Absalón. Entonces dijo David: Enloquece ahora, oh SEÑOR, el consejo de Ahitofel. 32 Y cuando David llegó a la cumbre del monte para adorar allí a Dios, he aquí Husai araquita que le salió al encuentro, trayendo rota su ropa, y tierra sobre su cabeza. 33 Y le dijo David: Si pasares conmigo, me serás de carga; 34 mas si volvieres a la ciudad, y dijeres a Absalón: Rey, yo seré tu siervo; como hasta aquí he sido siervo de tu padre, así seré ahora siervo tuyo, entonces tú me disiparás el consejo de Ahitofel. 35 ¿No estarán allí contigo Sadoc y Abiatar sacerdotes? Por tanto, todo lo que oyeres en la casa del rey, darás aviso de ello a Sadoc y a Abiatar sacerdotes.
