„As all the Cherethites and Pelethites, and the six hundred Gittites who had entered his service from that city, were passing in review before the king, 19the king said to Ittai the Gittite: Why should you also go with us? Go back and stay with the king, for you are a foreigner and you, too, are an exile from your own country. 20You came only yesterday, and today shall I have you wander off with us wherever I have to go? Return and take your brothers with you, and may the LORD show you kindness and fidelity. 21But Ittai answered the king, As the LORD lives, and as my lord the king lives, your servant shall be wherever my lord the king is, whether for death or for life. 22So the king said to Ittai, Go, then, march on. And Ittai the Gittite, with all his men and all the dependents that were with him, marched on. 23The whole land wept aloud as the last of the soldiers went by, and the king crossed the Wadi Kidron with all the soldiers moving on ahead of him by way of the ascent of the Mount of Olives, toward the wilderness”.
