And all who came to the place where Asahel fell and died stood still.

The king said, What have I to do with you, you sons of Zeruiah? If he is cursing because the Lord said to him, Curse David, who then shall ask, Why have you done so?

Let him alone; and let him curse, for the Lord has bidden him to do it.
