2 Samuel 19

16 And Shimei, the son of Gera, the Benjamite from Bahurim, got up quickly and went down with the men of Judah for the purpose of meeting King David;

17 And with him a thousand men of Benjamin, and Ziba, the servant of Saul, with his fifteen sons and twenty servants, came rushing to Jordan before the king,

18 And kept going across the river to take the people of the king's house over, and to do whatever was desired by the king. And Shimei, the son of Gera, went down on his face in the dust before the king, when he was about to go over Jordan,

19 And said to him, Let me not be judged as a sinner in your eyes, O my lord, and do not keep in mind the wrong I did on the day when my lord the king went out of Jerusalem, or take it to heart.

20 For your servant is conscious of his sin: and so, as you see, I have come today, the first of all the sons of Joseph, for the purpose of meeting my lord the king.

21 But Abishai, the son of Zeruiah, said, Is not death the right fate for Shimei, because he has been cursing the one marked by the holy oil?

22 And David said, What have I to do with you, you sons of Zeruiah, that you put yourselves against me today? is it right for any man in Israel to be put to death today? for I am certain today that I am king in Israel.

23 So the king said to Shimei, You will not be put to death. And the king gave him his oath.




The Apocrypha

Please note that, if you want a book from the Apocrypha (1 Esdras, 2 Esdras, Greek Additions to Esther, 1 Maccabees, 2 Maccabees, Tobit, Judith, Wisdom of Solomon, Sirach, Baruch, Epistle of Jeremiah, Susannah, Azariah, Manasseh, Bel and the Dragon) they are currently available only by choosing "Apocrypha - King James Version".

Other than Epistle of Jeremiah, you only need the first five letters of the book name (and actually, in some cases you can use just the first three or four, e.g. "Bel"). For the Greek Additions to Ester, you can use "Greek" as the book name. For Ecclesiasticus, please use its alternate name, "Sirach".
