2 Samuel 18 David prepares his army 1David brought together all the men who were with him. He chose some to lead hundreds and some to lead thousands of them. 2He sent them out in three groups. Joab led one group. His brother, Abishai, led another group and Ittai from Gath led the third group. The king said to them all, ‘I will go with you myself.’ 3But the men replied, ‘You must not go out. If we have to run away they may kill half of us. But they will really want only to kill you. You are worth 10,000 of us. You can send help to us from the city.’ 4‘I will do whatever you think is best,’ the king answered. Then he stood by the side of the gate. And his men marched out in their groups of hundreds and of thousands. 5The king spoke strongly to Joab, Abishai and Ittai. ‘Do not hurt the young man Absalom if you love me,’ he said. And all the soldiers heard him say this to the three officers. David’s men fight Israel’s soldiers 6The army marched out to fight Israel. They fought in the forest of Ephraim. 7There David’s men won the fight with Israel’s men. Many men died. There were 20,000 dead men. 8They fought over all the land in and round the forest. More men died in the forest than in the fight. 2 Corinthians 12:25 He has done that to bring all the parts together as one body. All the parts work together to help each other. https://temtube.com/
