Ahithophel's Advice

11 So here's my advice: Muster everybody from one end of the country to the other! You'll have an army in number like the sand on the seashore! Then you'll go into battle! 12 We'll go find David wherever he's hiding. We'll fall on him like dew on the ground! We'll kill him and all of his men, and we won't leave even one man alive! 13 If he escapes into a city, we'll bring ropes to that city and tear it down! We won't leave a single stone left in the valley!"
