2 Samuel 17
- "Moreover Ahith'ophel said to Ab'salom, ""Let me choose twelve thousand men, and I will set out and pursue David tonight. "
- "I will come upon him while he is weary and discouraged, and throw him into a panic; and all the people who are with him will flee. I will strike down the king only, "
- "and I will bring all the people back to you as a bride comes home to her husband. You seek the life of only one man, a and all the people will be at peace."" "
