2 Samuel 19:32-39 King James Version

32  Now Barzillai was a very aged man, even fourscore years old: and he had provided the king of sustenance while he lay at Mahanaim; for he was a very great man. 33  And the king said unto Barzillai, Come thou over with me, and I will feed thee with me in Jerusalem. 34  And Barzillai said unto the king, How long have I to live, that I should go up with the king unto Jerusalem? 35  I am this day fourscore years old: and can I discern between good and evil? can thy servant taste what I eat or what I drink? can I hear any more the voice of singing men and singing women? wherefore then should thy servant be yet a burden unto my lord the king? 36  Thy servant will go a little way over Jordan with the king: and why should the king recompense it me with such a reward? 37  Let thy servant, I pray thee, turn back again, that I may die in mine own city, and be buried by the grave of my father and of my mother. But behold thy servant Chimham; let him go over with my lord the king; and do to him what shall seem good unto thee. 38  And the king answered, Chimham shall go over with me, and I will do to him that which shall seem good unto thee: and whatsoever thou shalt require [1] of me, that will I do for thee. 39  And all the people went over Jordan. And when the king was come over, the king kissed Barzillai, and blessed him; and he returned unto his own place.
