* Art thou.
Ps 55:21 Pr 26:24-26 Mic 7:2
* took Amasa.
Thevenot says, that among the Turks it is a great afront to
take one by the beard, unless it be to kiss him, in which case
they often do it. D'Arvieux, describing an assembly of Arab
emirs at an entertainment, says, "After the usual civilities,
caresses, kissings of the beard, and of the hand, which every
one gave and received according to his rank and dignity, they
sat down upon mats." The doing this by the Arab emirs
corresponds with the conduct of Joab, and illustrates this
* to kiss him.
