For thou hast declared this day,
that thou regardest neither princes nor servants:
for this day I perceive, that if Absalom had lived,

for I swear by the LORD, if thou go not forth, there will not tarry one with thee this night:
and that will be worse unto thee than all the evil that befell thee from thy youth until now.
