17And Absalom said to Hushai, Is this thy kindnesse to thy friend? Why wentest thou not with thy friend? 18And Hushai said vnto Absalom, Nay, but whom the Lord and this people, and all the men of Israel chuse, his will I bee, and with him will I abide. 19And againe, whom should I serue? should I not serue in the presence of his sonne? as I haue serued in thy fathers presence, so will I be in thy presence.20¶ Then said Absalom to Ahithophel, Giue counsell among you what we shall doe. 21And Ahithophel said vnto Absalom, Goe in vnto thy fathers concubines, which he hath left to keepe the house, and all Israel shall heare that thou art abhorred of thy father, then shall the hands of all that are with thee be strong.
