2 Samuel 13

And it came to pass after
<0310>
this, that Absalom
<053>
the son
<01121>
of David
<01732>
had a fair
<03303>
sister
<0269>_,
whose name
<08034>
[was] Tamar
<08559>_;
and Amnon
<0550>
the son
<01121>
of David
<01732>
loved
<0157> (8799)
her.
And Amnon
<0550>
was so vexed
<03334> (8799)_,
that he fell sick
<02470> (8692)
for his sister
<0269>
Tamar
<08559>_;
for she [was] a virgin
<01330>_;
and Amnon
<0550>
thought
<05869>
it hard
<06381> (8735)
for him to do
<06213> (8800)
any thing
<03972>
to her. {Amnon thought...: Heb. it was marvellous, or, hidden in the eyes of Amnon}
But Amnon
<0550>
had a friend
<07453>_,
whose name
<08034>
[was] Jonadab
<03122>_,
the son
<01121>
of Shimeah
<08093>
David's
<01732>
brother
<0251>_:
and Jonadab
<03122>
[was] a very
<03966>
subtil
<02450>
man
<0376>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Why [art] thou, [being] the king's
<04428>
son
<01121>_,
lean
<01800>
from day
<01242>
to day
<01242>_?
wilt thou not tell
<05046> (8686)
me? And Amnon
<0550>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, I love
<0157> (8802)
Tamar
<08559>_,
my brother
<0251>
Absalom's
<053>
sister
<0269>_.
{lean: Heb. thin} {from day...: Heb. morning by morning}
And Jonadab
<03082>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Lay thee down
<07901> (8798)
on thy bed
<04904>_,
and make thyself sick
<02470> (8690)_:
and when thy father
<01>
cometh
<0935> (8804)
to see
<07200> (8800)
thee, say
<0559> (8804)
unto him, I pray thee, let my sister
<0269>
Tamar
<08559>
come
<0935> (8799)_,
and give
<01262> (8686)
me meat
<03899>_,
and dress
<06213> (8804)
the meat
<01279>
in my sight
<05869>_,
that I may see
<07200> (8799)
[it], and eat
<0398> (8804)
[it] at her hand
<03027>_.
So Amnon
<0550>
lay down
<07901> (8799)_,
and made himself sick
<02470> (8691)_:
and when the king
<04428>
was come
<0935> (8799)
to see
<07200> (8800)
him, Amnon
<0550>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the king
<04428>_,
I pray thee, let Tamar
<08559>
my sister
<0269>
come
<0935> (8799)_,
and make
<03823> (8762)
me a couple
<08147>
of cakes
<03834>
in my sight
<05869>_,
that I may eat
<01262> (8799)
at her hand
<03027>_.
Then David
<01732>
sent
<07971> (8799)
home
<01004>
to Tamar
<08559>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Go
<03212> (8798)
now to thy brother
<0251>
Amnon's
<0550>
house
<01004>_,
and dress
<06213> (8798)
him meat
<01279>_.
So Tamar
<08559>
went
<03212> (8799)
to her brother
<0251>
Amnon's
<0550>
house
<01004>_;
and he was laid down
<07901> (8802)_.
And she took
<03947> (8799)
flour
<01217>_,
and kneaded
<03888> (8799)
[it], and made cakes
<03823> (8762)
in his sight
<05869>_,
and did bake
<01310> (8762)
the cakes
<03834>_.
{flour: or, paste}
And she took
<03947> (8799)
a pan
<04958>_,
and poured [them] out
<03332> (8799)
before
<06440>
him; but he refused
<03985> (8762)
to eat
<0398> (8800)_.
And Amnon
<0550>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Have out
<03318> (8685)
all men
<0376>
from me. And they went out
<03318> (8799)
every man
<0376>
from him.
And Amnon
<0550>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Tamar
<08559>_,
Bring
<0935> (8685)
the meat
<01279>
into the chamber
<02315>_,
that I may eat
<01262> (8799)
of thine hand
<03027>_.
And Tamar
<08559>
took
<03947> (8799)
the cakes
<03834>
which she had made
<06213> (8804)_,
and brought
<0935> (8686)
[them] into the chamber
<02315>
to Amnon
<0550>
her brother
<0251>_.
And when she had brought
<05066> (8686)
[them] unto him to eat
<0398> (8800)_,
he took hold
<02388> (8686)
of her, and said
<0559> (8799)
unto her, Come
<0935> (8798)
lie
<07901> (8798)
with me, my sister
<0269>_.
And she answered
<0559> (8799)
him, Nay, my brother
<0251>_,
do not force
<06031> (8762)
me; for no such thing ought
<03651>
to be done
<06213> (8735)
in Israel
<03478>_:
do
<06213> (8799)
not thou this folly
<05039>_.
{force...: Heb. humble me} {no such...: Heb. it ought not so to be done}
And I, whither shall I cause my shame
<02781>
to go
<03212> (8686)_?
and as for thee, thou shalt be as one
<0259>
of the fools
<05036>
in Israel
<03478>_.
Now therefore, I pray thee, speak
<01696> (8761)
unto the king
<04428>_;
for he will not withhold
<04513> (8799)
me from thee.
Howbeit he would
<014> (8804)
not hearken
<08085> (8800)
unto her voice
<06963>_:
but, being stronger
<02388> (8799)
than she, forced
<06031> (8762)
her, and lay
<07901> (8799)
with her.
Then Amnon
<0550>
hated
<08130> (8799)
her exceedingly
<03966> <01419>_;
so that the hatred
<08135>
wherewith he hated
<08130> (8804)
her [was] greater
<01419>
than the love
<0160>
wherewith he had loved
<0157> (8804)
her. And Amnon
<0550>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto her, Arise
<06965> (8798)_,
be gone
<03212> (8798)_.
{exceedingly: Heb. with great hatred greatly}
And she said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, [There is] no cause
<0182>_:
this evil
<07451>
in sending me away
<07971> (8763)
[is] greater
<01419>
than the other
<0312>
that thou didst
<06213> (8804)
unto me. But he would
<014> (8804)
not hearken
<08085> (8800)
unto her.
Then he called
<07121> (8799)
his servant
<05288>
that ministered
<08334> (8764)
unto him, and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Put
<07971> (8798)
now this [woman] out
<02351>
from me, and bolt
<05274> (8798)
the door
<01817>
after
<0310>
her.
And [she had] a garment
<03801>
of divers colours
<06446>
upon her: for with such robes
<04598>
were the king's
<04428>
daughters
<01323>
[that were] virgins
<01330>
apparelled
<03847> (8799)_.
Then his servant
<08334> (8764)
brought
<03318> (8686)
her out
<02351>_,
and bolted
<05274> (8804)
the door
<01817>
after
<0310>
her.
And Tamar
<08559>
put
<03947> (8799)
ashes
<0665>
on her head
<07218>_,
and rent
<07167> (8804)
her garment
<03801>
of divers colours
<06446>
that [was] on her, and laid
<07760> (8799)
her hand
<03027>
on her head
<07218>_,
and went
<03212> (8799)
on
<01980> (8800)
crying
<02199> (8804)_.
And Absalom
<053>
her brother
<0251>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto her, Hath Amnon
<0550>
thy brother
<0251>
been with thee? but hold now thy peace
<02790> (8685)_,
my sister
<0269>_:
he [is] thy brother
<0251>_;
regard
<07896> (8799) <03820>
not this thing
<01697>_.
So Tamar
<08559>
remained
<03427> (8799)
desolate
<08074> (8802)
in her brother
<0251>
Absalom's
<053>
house
<01004>_.
{Amnon: Heb. Aminon} {regard...: Heb. set not thy heart} {desolate: Heb. and desolate}
But when king
<04428>
David
<01732>
heard
<08085> (8804)
of all these things
<01697>_,
he was very
<03966>
wroth
<02734> (8799)_.
And Absalom
<053>
spake
<01696> (8765)
unto his brother Amnon
<0550>
neither good
<02896>
nor bad
<07451>_:
for Absalom
<053>
hated
<08130> (8804)
Amnon
<0550>_,
because
<01697>
he had forced
<06031> (8765)
his sister
<0269>
Tamar
<08559>_.
And it came to pass after two full
<03117>
years
<08141>_,
that Absalom
<053>
had sheepshearers
<01494> (8802)
in Baalhazor
<01178>_,
which [is] beside Ephraim
<0669>_:
and Absalom
<053>
invited
<07121> (8799)
all the king's
<04428>
sons
<01121>_.
And Absalom
<053>
came
<0935> (8799)
to the king
<04428>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold now, thy servant
<05650>
hath sheepshearers
<01494> (8802)_;
let
<03212> (0)
the king
<04428>_,
I beseech thee, and his servants
<05650>
go
<03212> (8799)
with thy servant
<05650>_.
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
to Absalom
<053>_,
Nay, my son
<01121>_,
let us not all now go
<03212> (8799)_,
lest we be chargeable
<03513> (8799)
unto thee. And he pressed
<06555> (8799)
him: howbeit he would
<014> (8804)
not go
<03212> (8800)_,
but blessed
<01288> (8762)
him.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
Absalom
<053>_,
If not, I pray thee, let my brother
<0251>
Amnon
<0550>
go
<03212> (8799)
with us. And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Why should he go
<03212> (8799)
with thee?
But Absalom
<053>
pressed
<06555> (8799)
him, that he let Amnon
<0550>
and all the king's
<04428>
sons
<01121>
go
<07971> (8799)
with him.
Now Absalom
<053>
had commanded
<06680> (8762)
his servants
<05288>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Mark
<07200> (8798)
ye now when Amnon's
<0550>
heart
<03820>
is merry
<02896>
with wine
<03196>_,
and when I say
<0559> (8804)
unto you, Smite
<05221> (8685)
Amnon
<0550>_;
then kill
<04191> (8689)
him, fear
<03372> (8799)
not: have not I commanded
<06680> (8765)
you? be courageous
<02388> (8798)_,
and be valiant
<01121> <02428>_.
{have...: or, will you not, since I have commanded you?} {valiant: Heb. sons of valour}
And the servants
<05288>
of Absalom
<053>
did
<06213> (8799)
unto Amnon
<0550>
as Absalom
<053>
had commanded
<06680> (8765)_.
Then all the king's
<04428>
sons
<01121>
arose
<06965> (8799)_,
and every man
<0376>
gat him up
<07392> (8799)
upon his mule
<06505>_,
and fled
<05127> (8799)_.
{gat...: Heb. rode}
And it came to pass, while they were in the way
<01870>_,
that tidings
<08052>
came
<0935> (8804)
to David
<01732>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Absalom
<053>
hath slain
<05221> (8689)
all the king's
<04428>
sons
<01121>_,
and there is not one
<0259>
of them left
<03498> (8738)_.
Then the king
<04428>
arose
<06965> (8799)_,
and tare
<07167> (8799)
his garments
<0899>_,
and lay
<07901> (8799)
on the earth
<0776>_;
and all his servants
<05650>
stood
<05324> (8737)
by with their clothes
<0899>
rent
<07167> (8803)_.
And Jonadab
<03122>_,
the son
<01121>
of Shimeah
<08093>
David's
<01732>
brother
<0251>_,
answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Let not my lord
<0113>
suppose
<0559> (8799)
[that] they have slain
<04191> (8689)
all the young men
<05288>
the king's
<04428>
sons
<01121>_;
for Amnon
<0550>
only is dead
<04191> (8804)_:
for by the appointment
<06310>
of Absalom
<053>
this hath been determined
<07760> (8803)
from the day
<03117>
that he forced
<06031> (8763)
his sister
<0269>
Tamar
<08559>_.
{appointment: Heb. mouth} {determined: or, settled}
Now therefore let not my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>
take
<07760> (8799)
the thing
<01697>
to his heart
<03820>_,
to think
<0559> (8800)
that all the king's
<04428>
sons
<01121>
are dead
<04191> (8804)_:
for Amnon
<0550>
only is dead
<04191> (8804)_.
But Absalom
<053>
fled
<01272> (8799)_.
And the young man
<05288>
that kept the watch
<06822> (8802)
lifted up
<05375> (8799)
his eyes
<05869>_,
and looked
<07200> (8799)_,
and, behold, there came
<01980> (8802)
much
<07227>
people
<05971>
by the way
<01870>
of the hill
<02022>
side
<06654>
behind
<0310>
him.
And Jonadab
<03122>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the king
<04428>_,
Behold, the king's
<04428>
sons
<01121>
come
<0935> (8804)_:
as thy servant
<05650>
said
<01697>_,
so it is. {as thy...: Heb. according to the word of thy servant}
And it came to pass, as soon as he had made an end
<03615> (8763)
of speaking
<01696> (8763)_,
that, behold, the king's
<04428>
sons
<01121>
came
<0935> (8804)_,
and lifted up
<05375> (8799)
their voice
<06963>
and wept
<01058> (8799)_:
and the king
<04428>
also and all his servants
<05650>
wept
<01058> (8804)
very
<03966>
sore
<01065> <01419>_.
{very...: Heb. with a great weeping greatly}
But Absalom
<053>
fled
<01272> (8804)_,
and went
<03212> (8799)
to Talmai
<08526>_,
the son
<01121>
of Ammihud
<05991> (8675) <05989>_,
king
<04428>
of Geshur
<01650>_.
And [David] mourned
<056> (8691)
for his son
<01121>
every day
<03117>_.
{Ammihud: or, Ammihur}
So Absalom
<053>
fled
<01272> (8804)_,
and went
<03212> (8799)
to Geshur
<01650>_,
and was there three
<07969>
years
<08141>_.
And [the soul of] king
<04428>
David
<01732>
longed
<03615> (8762)
to go forth
<03318> (8800)
unto Absalom
<053>_:
for he was comforted
<05162> (8738)
concerning Amnon
<0550>_,
seeing he was dead
<04191> (8804)_.
{longed: or, was consumed}
