Backslapping roles flattered The woman from Tekoa went to David. She bowed very low and said, “Your Majesty, please help me!” David asked, “What’s the matter?” She replied: My husband is dead, and I’m a widow. I had two sons, but they got into a fight out in a field where there was no one to pull them apart, and one of them killed the other.
Now all of my relatives have come to me and said, “Hand over your son! We’re going to put him to death for killing his brother.” But what they really want is to get rid of him, so they can take over our land. Please don’t let them put out my only flame of hope! There won’t be anyone left on this earth carry on my husband’s name. “Go on home,” David told her. “I’ll take care

The woman said: Haven’t you been hurting God’s people? Your own son had to leave the country. And when you judged in my favor, it was the same as admitting that you should have let him come back. We each must die and disappear like water poured out on the ground. But God doesn’t take our lives. Instead, he figures out ways of bringing us back when we run away. Your Majesty, I came here to
tell you about my problem, because I was afraid of what someone might do to me.
I decided to come to you, because I thought you could help. In fact, I knew that you would listen and save my son and me from those who want to take the land that God gave us. I can rest easy now that you have given your decision. You know the difference between right and wrong just like an angel of God, and I pray that the Lord your God will be with you. 2 Samuel 14:4-17
