2 Samuel 4

This motivational bible chapter tells the story of how Rekab and Baanah went to the house of Saul’s son Ishbosheth and murdered him while he lay sleeping in bed (by stabbing him beneath the 5th rib). Then they chopped off his head and carried it to King David and presented it as vengeance for the Lord, hoping that this would please the King. Instead, King David responded in the opposite of what they expected, and ordered Rekab and Baanah to be killed, having their hands and feet cut off and their bodies hung over the pool at Hebron.
