|6||But Adoni-bezek fled; and they pursued after him, and caught him, and cut off his thumbs and his great toes.|
|7||And Adoni-bezek said, Threescore and ten kings, having their thumbs and their great toes cut off, gathered their meat under my table: as I have done, so God hath requited me. And they brought him to Jerusalem, and there he died.||Threescore and ten kings toes cut off under my table|
