We have no part in David, neither have we inheritance in the son of
Jesse: every man to his tents, O Israel.
SA2 20:2 So every man of Israel went up from after David, and followed
Sheba the son of Bichri: but the men of Judah clave unto their king,
from Jordan even to Jerusalem.
SA2 20:3 And David came to his house at Jerusalem; and the king took
the ten women his concubines, whom he had left to keep the house, and
put them in ward, and fed them, but went not in unto them. So they were
shut up unto the day of their death, living in widowhood.
SA2 20:4 Then said the king to Amasa, Assemble me the men of Judah
within three days, and be thou here present.
