2 Samuel 16:11; 2 Kings 18:36; Luke 23:9

11 And David said to Abishai and to all his servants, Behold, emy own son seeks my life; how much more now may this Benjaminite! Leave him alone, and let him curse, for the Lord has told him to.


36 But the people were silent and answered him not a word, for the king's command was, Do not answer him.


So he questioned him at some length, but he made no answer.
