2 Samuel 13:34-38

Context

13:34 In the meantime Absalom fled. When the servant who was the watchman looked up, he saw many people coming from the west 1  on a road beside the hill. 13:35 Jonadab said to the king, “Look! The king’s sons have come! It’s just as I said!”

13:36 Just as he finished speaking, the king’s sons arrived, wailing and weeping. 2  The king and all his servants wept loudly 3  as well. 13:37 But Absalom fled and went to King Talmai son of Ammihud of Geshur. And David 4  grieved over his son every day.

13:38 After Absalom fled and went to Geshur, he remained there for three years.

1 tn Heb “behind him.”

2 tn Heb “and they lifted their voice and wept.”

3 tn Heb “with a great weeping.”

4 tc The Hebrew text leaves the word “David” to be inferred. The Syriac Peshitta and Vulgate add the word “David.” Most of the Greek tradition includes the words “King David” here.
