2 Samuel 3:27-29 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

27 When Abner returned to Hebron, Joab took him aside within the city gate to speak with him privately. There he stabbed him in the abdomen, and he died for the blood of Asahel, Joab’s brother. 28 Later David heard of it and said: “Before the Lord, I and my kingdom are forever innocent. 29 May the blood of Abner, son of Ner, be on the head of Joab and all his family. May Joab’s family never be without one suffering from a discharge, or one with a skin disease, or a man who holds the distaff, or one falling by the sword, or one in need of food!”[a]
