English Standard Version
Chapter 3 24
Then Joab went to the king and said, “What have you done? Behold, Abner came to you. Why is it that you have sent him away, so that he is gone? 25
You know that Abner the son of Ner came to deceive you and to know your going out and your coming in, and to know all that you are doing.” 26
When Joab came out from David’s presence, he sent messengers after Abner, and they brought him back from the cistern of Sirah. But David did not know about it.
