22And they went unto the king, and said, How long will it be ere thou execute judgment, and avenge our brethren? 23We have been willing to serve thy father, and to do as he would have us, and to obey his commandments; 24For which cause they of our nation besiege the tower, and are alienated from us: moreover as many of us as they could light on they slew, and spoiled our inheritance. 25Neither have they stretched out their hand against us only, but also against their borders.26And, behold, this day are they besieging the tower at Jerusalem, to take it: the sanctuary also and Bethsura have they fortified. 27Wherefore if thou dost not prevent them quickly, they will do the greater things than these, neither shalt thou be able to rule them. 28Now when the king heard this, he was angry, and gathered together all his friends, and the captains of his army, and those that had charge of the horse.
