And there happened to be there a man of Be'li-al, whose name was Sheba, the son of Bichri, a Benjamite: and he blew a trumpet, and said, We have no part in David, neither have we inheritance in the son of Jesse: every man to his tents, O Israel. 1 Kgs. 12.16 · 2 Chr. 10.16
¶ And David came to his house at Jerusalem; and the king took the ten women his concubines, 2 Sam. 16.22 whom he had left to keep the house, and put them in ward, and fed them, but went not in unto them. So they were shut up unto the day of their death, living in widowhood.
When they were at the great stone which is in Gibeon, Ama'sa went before them. And Jo'ab's garment that he had put on was girded unto him, and upon it a girdle with a sword fastened upon his loins in the sheath thereof; and as he went forth it fell out.
But Ama'sa took no heed of the sword that was in Jo'ab's hand: so he smote him therewith in the fifth rib, and shed out his bowels to the ground, and struck him not again; and he died.
So Jo'ab and Ab'ishai his brother pursued after Sheba the son of Bichri.
And Ama'sa wallowed in blood in the midst of the highway. And when the man saw that all the people stood still, he removed Ama'sa out of the highway into the field, and cast a cloth upon him, when he saw that every one that came by him stood still.
And they came and besieged him in Abel of Bethma'achah, and they cast up a bank against the city, and it stood in the trench: and all the people that were with Jo'ab battered the wall, to throw it down.
The matter is not so: but a man of mount E'phra-im, Sheba the son of Bichri by name, hath lifted up his hand against the king, even against David: deliver him only, and I will depart from the city. And the woman said unto Jo'ab, Behold, his head shall be thrown to thee over the wall.
Then the woman went unto all the people in her wisdom: and they cut off the head of Sheba the son of Bichri, and cast it out to Jo'ab. And he blew a trumpet, and they retired from the city, every man to his tent. And Jo'ab returned to Jerusalem unto the king.
