2Sam 19:11-15

11King David sent this message to the priests Zadok and Abiathar, “Say to the elders of Judah, ‘Why should you be the last to bring the king back to his house? The talk of all Israel has come to the king.12You are my kin, you are my bone and my flesh; why then should you be the last to bring back the king?’13And say to Amasa, ‘Are you not my bone and my flesh? So may God do to me, and more, if you are not the commander of my army from now on, in place of Joab.’ ”14Amasa swayed the hearts of all the people of Judah as one, and they sent word to the king, “Return, both you and all your servants.”15So the king came back to the Jordan; and Judah came to Gilgal to meet the king and to bring him over the Jordan.
