The King James Version Bible

2 Samuel 10:12-15

  1. Be of good courage, and let us play the men for our people, and for the cities of our God: and the LORD do that which seemeth him good.

  2. And Joab drew nigh, and the people that were with him, unto the battle against the Syrians: and they fled before him.

  3. And when the children of Ammon saw that the Syrians were fled, then fled they also before Abishai, and entered into the city. So Joab returned from the children of Ammon, and came to Jerusalem.

  4. And when the Syrians saw that they were smitten before Israel, they gathered themselves together.
