2 Samuel 14:32

32Absalom answered Joab, “Behold, I sent word to you, ‘Come here, that I may send you to the king, to ask, “Why have I come from aGeshur? It would be better for me to be there still.” Now therefore let me go into the presence of the king band if there is guilt in me, let him put me to death.’”
