Parallel Verses
King James Version
And the men of Israel answered the men of Judah, and said, We have ten parts in the king, and we have also more right in David than ye: why then did ye despise us, that our advice should not be first had in bringing back our king?

Darby Bible Translation

World English Bible

Young's Literal Translation
