Then David and the people that were with him lifted up their voice and wept, until they had no more power to weep.









(32) In Hebron.--The family home, and therefore the natural burial-place, of Abner was at Gibeon (1Chronicles 8:29; 1Chronicles 8:33; 1Chronicles 9:33); but this may have been now under Ish-bosheth's control, and, at all events, a burial in the royal city of Hebron was more honourable and a more marked testimony to the grief of David.
