1 And it was, after this, that Absalom the son of David had a beautiful sister, and her name was Tamar; and Amnon the son of David loved her.

2 And Amnon was·​·distressed, so that he was·​·sick on account·​·of Tamar his sister; for she was a virgin; and in the eyes of Amnon it was hard to do anything to her.

3 And Amnon had a companion, and his name was Jonadab, the son of Shimeah David’s brother; and Jonadab was a man exceedingly wise.

4 And he said unto him, Why art thou, the king’s son thus lean from morning to morning? wilt thou not tell me? And Amnon said unto him, I love Tamar my brother Absalom’s sister.

5 And Jehonadab said unto him, Lay· thee ·down on thy bed, and make thyself be·​·sick; and thy father shall come to see thee, and say thou unto him, I pray thee, let Tamar my sister come and nourish me with bread, and make the nourishment before my eyes, that I may see and eat from her hand.

6 And Amnon lay·​·down and made· himself ·sick; and the king came to see him; and Amnon said unto the king, I pray thee, let Tamar my sister come and make·​·heartcakes before my eyes, two heartcakes, and I will be·​·nourished from her hand.

7 And David sent to Tamar to the house, saying, Go now to thy brother Amnon’s house, and make him nourishment.

8 And Tamar went to the house of Amnon her brother, and he was lying·​·down. And she took the dough and kneaded it, and made·​·heartcakes before his eyes, and cooked the heartcakes.

9 And she took the pan and poured before him; and he refused to eat. And Amnon said, Let every man go·​·out from me; and they went·​·out every man from him.

10 And Amnon said unto Tamar, Bring the nourishment into the chamber, and I will be·​·nourished from thy hand. And Tamar took the heartcakes which she had made, and brought them to Amnon her brother into the chamber.

11 And she presented them unto him to eat, and he took·​·hold of her and said to her, Come, lie with me, my sister.

12 And she said to him, No, do not my brother, do not pressure me, for it ought not to be done so in Israel; do not this folly.

13 And I, whither shall I make my reproach to go? and as for thee, thou shalt be as one of the fools in Israel. But speak now, I pray thee, unto the king, for he will not withhold me from thee.

14 But he was· not ·willing to obey her voice; and he was stronger than she, and pressured her, and lay with her.

15 And Amnon hated her with exceedingly great hatred; for the hatred with which he hated her was greater than the love with which he had loved her. And Amnon said to her, Arise, be gone!

16 And she said to him, There is not a cause, This evil in sending· me ·away is greater than the other which thou didst with me. But he was· not ·willing to hearken to her.

17 And he called the lad that ministered unto him, and said, I pray thee, send this one from me outside, and lock the door after her.

18 And she had a tunic of various colors upon her; for thus with such mantles were the virgin daughters of the king clothed. And his minister brought· her ·out to the street and locked the door behind her.

19 And Tamar put ashes on her head, and rent the tunic of various colors that was on her, and set her hand on her head, and went, going and crying.

20 And Absalom her brother said to her, Has Amnon thy brother been with thee? But now my sister, be·​·silent, thy brother is he. Set not thy heart to this thing. And Tamar dwelt desolate in the house of Absalom her brother.

21 And king David heard of all these things; and he was· very ·incensed.

22 And Absalom spoke not with Amnon either evil or good; for Absalom hated Amnon, for this thing, that he had afflicted Tamar his sister.

23 And it was, after two·​·years of days, that Absalom had shearers in Baal-hazor, which is by Ephraim; and Absalom called all the sons of the king.

24 And Absalom came to the king, and said, Behold, I pray, thy servant has shearers. Let the king and his servants go with thy servant.

25 And the king said unto Absalom, No, my son, let us not all now go, I pray thee, and we shall not be· too ·heavy for thee. And he pressed him, and he would not go; but he blessed him.

26 And Absalom said, And if not, I pray thee, let my brother Amnon go with us. And the king said unto him, Why should he go with thee?

27 And Absalom pressed him; and he sent with him Amnon and all the sons of the king.

28 And Absalom commanded his lads saying, See now, when the heart of Amnon is merry* with wine, and I say to you, Smite Amnon; then put· him ·to·​·death; fear not, for I have commanded you. Be·​·firm and be sons of valor.

29 And the lads of Absalom did to Amnon as Absalom commanded. And all the sons of the king arose, and they rode each·​·man upon his mule, and fled.

30 And it was, while they were on the way, that the report came to David, saying, Absalom has smitten all the sons of the king, and not one of them remains.

31 And the king arose and rent his garments, and lay on the earth; and all his servants stood·​·up with their garments rent.

32 And Jonadab the son of Shimeah the brother of David, answered and said, Let not my lord say that they have put·​·to·​·death all the lads, the sons of the king, for Amnon alone is·​·dead; for it was set at the mouth of Absalom from the day that he afflicted his sister Tamar.

33 And now, let not my lord the king set the thing to his heart, saying that all the sons of the king are·​·dead; for Amnon alone is·​·dead.

34 And Absalom ran·​·away. And the lad that watched, lifted his eyes and saw, and behold, there were many people walking from the way behind him, from the side of the mountain.

35 And Jonadab said to the king, Behold the sons of the king come; as the word of thy servant, so it is.

36 And it was, as he completed speaking, that behold, the sons of the king came, and lifted their voice and wept; and the king also and all his servants wept with exceedingly great weeping.

37 And Absalom ran·​·away and went to Talmai, the son of Ammihud, king of Geshur. But he mourned over his son all the days.

38 And Absalom ran·​·away and went to Geshur, and was there three years.

39 And David the king was·​·all·​·consumed, his heart going·​·out to Absalom, for he was comforted over Amnon, for he was·​·dead.
