2 Samuel 17:23-29
New International Version
23 When Ahithophel saw that his advice(A) had not been followed, he saddled his donkey and set out for his house in his hometown. He put his house in order(B) and then hanged himself. So he died and was buried in his father’s tomb.
24 David went to Mahanaim,(C) and Absalom crossed the Jordan with all the men of Israel. 25 Absalom had appointed Amasa(D) over the army in place of Joab. Amasa was the son of Jether,[a](E) an Ishmaelite[b] who had married Abigail,[c] the daughter of Nahash and sister of Zeruiah the mother of Joab. 26 The Israelites and Absalom camped in the land of Gilead.
27 When David came to Mahanaim, Shobi son of Nahash(F) from Rabbah(G) of the Ammonites, and Makir(H) son of Ammiel from Lo Debar, and Barzillai(I) the Gileadite(J) from Rogelim 28 brought bedding and bowls and articles of pottery. They also brought wheat and barley, flour and roasted grain, beans and lentils,[d] 29 honey and curds, sheep, and cheese from cows’ milk for David and his people to eat.(K) For they said, “The people have become exhausted and hungry and thirsty in the wilderness.(L)”
