33 dAhithophel was the eking’s counselor, and Hushai the Archite was the king’s friend.
9 Even my kclose friend in whom I trusted,
who late my bread, has lifted his heel against me.
12 For it is not an enemy who taunts me—
then I could bear it;
it is not an adversary who tdeals insolently with me—
then I could hide from him.
13 uBut it is you, a man, my equal,
my companion, my familiar friend.
14 We used to take sweet counsel together;
within God’s house we walked in vthe throng.
