2 Samuel

2 Samuel 20

    The Rebellion of Sheba

  1. "Now there happened to be there a worthless fellow, whose name was Sheba, the son of Bichri, a Benjaminite; and he blew the trumpet, and said,""We have no portion in David,and we have no inheritance in the son of Jesse;every man to his tents, O Israel!"""
  2. "So all the men of Israel withdrew from David, and followed Sheba the son of Bichri; but the men of Judah followed their king steadfastly from the Jordan to Jerusalem."
  3. "And David came to his house at Jerusalem; and the king took the ten concubines whom he had left to care for the house, and put them in a house under guard, and provided for them, but did not go in to them. So they were shut up until the day of their death, living as if in widowhood."
