2 Samuel 20:17-19
17 Joab came close enough to hear her.
Woman: Are you Joab?
Joab: Yes, I am.
Woman: I, your servant, have something to tell you.
Joab: All right. I am listening.
Woman: 18 In the old days, people used to say, “Let’s ask for guidance at Abel,” and there they would resolve their differences. 19 I am one of the many in Israel who are faithful and peaceful. Why would you destroy a city that has been a mother to Israel? Why would you knock down what the Eternal One has built?
