2 Samuel 2:25-27 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
25 And the children of Benjamin gathered themselves together behind Abner and became one troop, and stood on the top of a hill.
26 Then Abner called to Joab and said, “Shall the sword devour for ever? Knowest thou not that it will be bitterness in the latter end? How long shall it be then, ere thou bid the people to return from following their brethren?”
27 And Joab said, “As God liveth, unless thou had spoken, surely then in the morning the people would have gone up every one from following his brother.”
