2 Samuel 15:14-17

14Then David said to all his servants who were with him at Jerusalem, “Arise, and let us a  flee, or else there will be no escape for us from Absalom. Go quickly, lest he overtake us quickly and bring down ruin on us and strike the city with the edge of the sword.” 15And the king’s servants said to the king, “Behold, your servants are ready to do whatever my lord the king decides.” 16So the king went out, and all his household after him. And the king left b  ten concubines to keep the house. 17And the king went out, and all the people after him. And they halted at the last house.
