kjv@2Samuel:12:21@ Then said his servants unto him, What thing is this that thou hast done? thou didst fast and weep for the child, while it was alive; but when the child was dead, thou didst rise and eat bread.
kjv@2Samuel:12:22@ And he said, While the child was yet alive, I fasted and wept: for I said, Who can tell whether GOD will be gracious to me, that the child may live?
kjv@2Samuel:12:23@ But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.
