2_Samuel 15: 3 And Absalom said unto him: 'See, thy matters are good and right; but there is no man deputed of the king to hear thee.'
2_Samuel 15: 4 Absalom said moreover: 'Oh that I were made judge in the land, that every man who hath any suit or cause might come unto me, and I would do him justice!'
2_Samuel 15: 5 And it was so, that when any man came nigh to prostrate himself before him, he put forth his hand, and took hold of him, and kissed him.

of gills of the genial spirit.
Peace's daring feat was not, according to his own account, a mere
attempt to escape from the clutches of the law; it was noble and
