2 Samuel 3:28-31

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 3

28 Afterward, when David heard about this, he said, 'I and my kingdom are innocent before the LORD forever of the blood of Abner the son of Ner. 29 May it turn upon the head of Joab and on all his father’s house; and may there not be eliminated from the house of Joab someone who suffers a discharge, or has leprosy, or holds the spindle, or falls by the sword, or lacks bread.' 30 So Joab and his brother Abishai killed Abner because he had put their brother Asahel to death in the battle at Gibeon.
31 Then David said to Joab and to all the people who were with him, 'Tear your clothes and put on sackcloth, and mourn before Abner.' And King David walked behind the bier.
King James Version

Chapter 3

28 And afterward when David heard it, he said, I and my kingdom are guiltless before the LORD for ever from the blood of Abner the son of Ner: 29 Let it rest on the head of Joab, and on all his father's house; and let there not fail from the house of Joab one that hath an issue, or that is a leper, or that leaneth on a staff, or that falleth on the sword, or that lacketh bread. 30 So Joab and Abishai his brother slew Abner, because he had slain their brother Asahel at Gibeon in the battle. 31 And David said to Joab, and to all the people that were with him, Rend your clothes, and gird you with sackcloth, and mourn before Abner. And king David himself followed the bier.

Chapter 3

28 David heard about it later and said, "I and my kingdom are forever innocent before the Lord concerning the blood of Abner son of Ner. 29 May it hang over Joab's head and his father's whole family, and may the house of Joab never be without someone who has a discharge or a skin disease, or a man who can only work a spindle, or someone who falls by the sword or starves." 30 Joab and his brother Abishai killed Abner because he had put their brother Asahel to death in the battle at Gibeon.
31 David then ordered Joab and all the people who were with him, "Tear your clothes, put on sackcloth, and mourn over Abner." And King David walked behind the coffin.
New Living Translation

Chapter 3

28 When David heard about it, he declared, 'I vow by the LORD that I and my kingdom are forever innocent of this crime against Abner son of Ner. 29 Joab and his family are the guilty ones. May the family of Joab be cursed in every generation with a man who has open sores or leprosy or who walks on crutches or dies by the sword or begs for food!'
30 So Joab and his brother Abishai killed Abner because Abner had killed their brother Asahel at the battle of Gibeon.
31 Then David said to Joab and all those who were with him, 'Tear your clothes and put on burlap. Mourn for Abner.' And King David himself walked behind the procession to the grave.

28 Afterward, when David heard of it, he said, “I and my kingdom are forever guiltless before the LORD for the blood of Abner the son of Ner. 29 May it fall upon the head of Joab and upon all his father’s house, and may the house of Joab never be without one who has a discharge or who is leprous or who holds a spindle or who falls by the sword or who lacks bread!” 30 So Joab and Abishai his brother killed Abner, because he had put their brother Asahel to death in the battle at Gibeon.
31 Then David said to Joab and to all the people who were with him, “Tear your clothes and put on sackcloth and mourn before Abner.” And King David followed the bier.

28 Later, when David heard about this, he said, 'I and my kingdom are forever innocent before the LORD concerning the blood of Abner son of Ner. 29 May his blood fall on the head of Joab and on his whole family! May Joab's family never be without someone who has a running sore or leprosy or who leans on a crutch or who falls by the sword or who lacks food.'
30 (Joab and his brother Abishai murdered Abner because he had killed their brother Asahel in the battle at Gibeon.)
31 Then David said to Joab and all the people with him, 'Tear your clothes and put on sackcloth and walk in mourning in front of Abner.' King David himself walked behind the bier.

Chapter 3

28 Cuando David lo supo después, dijo: Yo y mi reino somos inocentes para siempre delante del SEÑOR de la sangre de Abner, hijo de Ner. 29 Caiga su sangre sobre la cabeza de Joab y sobre toda la casa de su padre, y nunca falte en la casa de Joab quien padezca flujo, ni quien sea leproso, ni quien se sostenga con báculo, ni quien muera a espada, ni quien carezca de pan. 30 Así pues, Joab y su hermano Abisai mataron a Abner porque él había dado muerte a Asael, hermano de ellos, en la batalla de Gabaón.
31 Entonces David dijo a Joab y a todo el pueblo que estaba con él: Rasgad vuestros vestidos, y ceñíos de cilicio, y haced duelo delante de Abner. Y el rey David iba detrás del féretro.

28 Algún tiempo después, David se enteró de esto y declaró: «Hago constar ante el SEÑOR, que mi reino y yo somos totalmente inocentes de la muerte de Abner hijo de Ner. 29 ¡Los responsables de su muerte son Joab y toda su familia! ¡Que nunca falte en la familia de Joab alguien que sufra de hemorragia o de lepra, o que sea cojo, o que muera violentamente, o que pase hambre!»
30 Joab y su hermano Abisay asesinaron a Abner porque en la batalla de Gabaón él había matado a Asael, hermano de ellos.
31 David ordenó a Joab y a todos los que estaban con él: «Rásguense las vestiduras, vístanse de luto, y hagan duelo por Abner». El rey David en persona marchó detrás del féretro,
