Shmuel Bais 18:13-15 Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)
13 Otherwise I should have dealt sheker against mine own nefesh; for there is no matter hid from HaMelech, and thou thyself wouldest have set thyself against me.
14 Then said Yoav, I will not tarry thus with thee. And he took three shevatim in his yad, and thrust them through the lev Avshalom, while he was yet alive in the midst of the oak tree [Yn 19:34].
15 And ten ne’arim that bore the armor of Yoav surrounded Avshalom, struck and slaughtered him.
