Bible: 2 Samuel 20:8-10

20:8 When they were near the big rock that is in Gibeon, Amasa came to them. Now Joab was dressed in military attire and had a dagger in its sheath belted to his waist. When he advanced, it fell out. 1 

20:9 Joab said to Amasa, “How are you, my brother?” With his right hand Joab took hold of Amasa’s beard as if to greet him with a kiss. 20:10 Amasa did not protect himself from the knife in Joab’s other hand, and Joab 2  stabbed him in the abdomen, causing Amasa’s 3  intestines to spill out on the ground. There was no need to stab him again; the first blow was fatal. 4  Then Joab and his brother Abishai pursued Sheba son of Bicri.
