Chapter 13

  1. 1. And it came to pass after
    H310
    this, that Absalom
    H53
    the son
    H1121
    of David
    H1732
    had a fair
    H3303
    sister,
    H269
    whose name
    H8034
    was Tamar;
    H8559
    and Amnon
    H550
    the son
    H1121
    of David
    H1732
    loved
    H157
    her.
  2. 2. And Amnon
    H550
    was so vexed,
    H3334
    that he fell sick
    H2470
    for his sister
    H269
    Tamar;
    H8559
    for she was a virgin;
    H1330
    and Amnon
    H550
    thought
    H5869
    it hard
    H6381
    for him to do
    H6213
    any thing
    H3972
    to her.
  3. 3. But Amnon
    H550
    had a friend,
    H7453
    whose name
    H8034
    was Jonadab,
    H3122
    the son
    H1121
    of Shimeah
    H8093
    David's
    H1732
    brother:
    H251
    and Jonadab
    H3122
    was a very
    H3966
    subtil
    H2450
    man.
    H376
  4. 4. And he said
    H559
    unto him, Why art thou, being the king's
    H4428
    son,
    H1121
    lean
    H1800
    from day
    H1242
    to day?
    H1242
    wilt thou not tell
    H5046
    me? And Amnon
    H550
    said
    H559
    unto him, I love
    H157
    Tamar,
    H8559
    my brother
    H251
    Absalom's
    H53
    sister.
    H269
  5. 5. And Jonadab
    H3082
    said
    H559
    unto him, Lay thee down
    H7901
    on thy bed,
    H4904
    and make thyself sick:
    H2470
    and when thy father
    H1
    cometh
    H935
    to see
    H7200
    thee, say
    H559
    unto him, I pray thee, let my sister
    H269
    Tamar
    H8559
    come,
    H935
    and give
    H1262
    me meat,
    H3899
    and dress
    H6213
    the meat
    H1279
    in my sight,
    H5869
    that I may see
    H7200
    it, and eat
    H398
    it at her hand.
    H3027
  6. 6. So Amnon
    H550
    lay down,
    H7901
    and made himself sick:
    H2470
    and when the king
    H4428
    was come
    H935
    to see
    H7200
    him, Amnon
    H550
    said
    H559
    unto the king,
    H4428
    I pray thee, let Tamar
    H8559
    my sister
    H269
    come,
    H935
    and make
    H3823
    me a couple
    H8147
    of cakes
    H3834
    in my sight,
    H5869
    that I may eat
    H1262
    at her hand.
    H3027
  7. 7. Then David
    H1732
    sent
    H7971
    home
    H1004
    to Tamar,
    H8559
    saying,
    H559
    Go
    H3212
    now to thy brother
    H251
    Amnon's
    H550
    house,
    H1004
    and dress
    H6213
    him meat.
    H1279
  8. 8. So Tamar
    H8559
    went
    H3212
    to her brother
    H251
    Amnon's
    H550
    house;
    H1004
    and he was laid down.
    H7901
    And she took
    H3947
    flour,
    H1217
    and kneaded
    H3888
    it, and made cakes
    H3823
    in his sight,
    H5869
    and did bake
    H1310
    the cakes.
    H3834
  9. 9. And she took
    H3947
    a pan,
    H4958
    and poured them out
    H3332
    before
    H6440
    him; but he refused
    H3985
    to eat.
    H398
    And Amnon
    H550
    said,
    H559
    Have out
    H3318
    all men
    H376
    from me. And they went out
    H3318
    every man
    H376
    from him.
  10. 10. And Amnon
    H550
    said
    H559
    unto Tamar,
    H8559
    Bring
    H935
    the meat
    H1279
    into the chamber,
    H2315
    that I may eat
    H1262
    of thine hand.
    H3027
    And Tamar
    H8559
    took
    H3947
    the cakes
    H3834
    which she had made,
    H6213
    and brought
    H935
    them into the chamber
    H2315
    to Amnon
    H550
    her brother.
    H251
  11. 11. And when she had brought
    H5066
    them unto him to eat,
    H398
    he took hold
    H2388
    of her, and said
    H559
    unto her, Come
    H935
    lie
    H7901
    with me, my sister.
    H269
  12. 12. And she answered
    H559
    him, Nay, my brother,
    H251
    do not force
    H6031
    me; for no such thing ought
    H3651
    to be done
    H6213
    in Israel:
    H3478
    do
    H6213
    not thou this folly.
    H5039
  13. 13. And I, whither shall I cause my shame
    H2781
    to go?
    H3212
    and as for thee, thou shalt be as one
    H259
    of the fools
    H5036
    in Israel.
    H3478
    Now therefore, I pray thee, speak
    H1696
    unto the king;
    H4428
    for he will not withhold
    H4513
    me from thee.
  14. 14. Howbeit he would
    H14
    not hearken
    H8085
    unto her voice:
    H6963
    but, being stronger
    H2388
    than she, forced
    H6031
    her, and lay
    H7901
    with her.
  15. 15. Then Amnon
    H550
    hated
    H8130
    her exceedingly;
    H1419
    H3966
    so that the hatred
    H8135
    wherewith he hated
    H8130
    her was greater
    H1419
    than the love
    H160
    wherewith he had loved
    H157
    her. And Amnon
    H550
    said
    H559
    unto her, Arise,
    H6965
    be gone.
    H3212
  16. 16. And she said
    H559
    unto him, There is no cause:
    H182
    this evil
    H7451
    in sending me away
    H7971
    is greater
    H1419
    than the other
    H312
    that thou didst
    H6213
    unto me. But he would
    H14
    not hearken
    H8085
    unto her.
  17. 17. Then he called
    H7121
    his servant
    H5288
    that ministered
    H8334
    unto him, and said,
    H559
    Put
    H7971
    now this woman out
    H2351
    from me, and bolt
    H5274
    the door
    H1817
    after
    H310
    her.
  18. 18. And she had a garment
    H3801
    of divers colours
    H6446
    upon her: for with such robes
    H4598
    were the king's
    H4428
    daughters
    H1323
    that were virgins
    H1330
    apparelled.
    H3847
    Then his servant
    H8334
    brought
    H3318
    her out,
    H2351
    and bolted
    H5274
    the door
    H1817
    after
    H310
    her.
  19. 19. And Tamar
    H8559
    put
    H3947
    ashes
    H665
    on her head,
    H7218
    and rent
    H7167
    her garment
    H3801
    of divers colours
    H6446
    that was on her, and laid
    H7760
    her hand
    H3027
    on her head,
    H7218
    and went
    H3212
    on
    H1980
    crying.
    H2199
  20. 20. And Absalom
    H53
    her brother
    H251
    said
    H559
    unto her, Hath Amnon
    H550
    thy brother
    H251
    been with thee? but hold now thy peace,
    H2790
    my sister:
    H269
    he is thy brother;
    H251
    regard
    H7896
    H3820
    not this thing.
    H1697
    So Tamar
    H8559
    remained
    H3427
    desolate
    H8074
    in her brother
    H251
    Absalom's
    H53
    house.
    H1004
  21. 21. But when king
    H4428
    David
    H1732
    heard
    H8085
    of all these things,
    H1697
    he was very
    H3966
    wroth.
    H2734
  22. 22. And Absalom
    H53
    spake
    H1696
    unto his brother Amnon
    H550
    neither good
    H2896
    nor bad:
    H7451
    for Absalom
    H53
    hated
    H8130
    Amnon,
    H550
    because
    H1697
    he had forced
    H6031
    his sister
    H269
    Tamar.
    H8559
  23. 23. And it came to pass after two full
    H3117
    years,
    H8141
    that Absalom
    H53
    had sheepshearers
    H1494
    in Baalhazor,
    H1178
    which is beside Ephraim:
    H669
    and Absalom
    H53
    invited
    H7121
    all the king's
    H4428
    sons.
    H1121
  24. 24. And Absalom
    H53
    came
    H935
    to the king,
    H4428
    and said,
    H559
    Behold now, thy servant
    H5650
    hath sheepshearers;
    H1494
    let
    H3212
    the king,
    H4428
    I beseech thee, and his servants
    H5650
    go
    H3212
    with thy servant.
    H5650
  25. 25. And the king
    H4428
    said
    H559
    to Absalom,
    H53
    Nay, my son,
    H1121
    let us not all now go,
    H3212
    lest we be chargeable
    H3513
    unto thee. And he pressed
    H6555
    him: howbeit he would
    H14
    not go,
    H3212
    but blessed
    H1288
    him.
  26. 26. Then said
    H559
    Absalom,
    H53
    If not, I pray thee, let my brother
    H251
    Amnon
    H550
    go
    H3212
    with us. And the king
    H4428
    said
    H559
    unto him, Why should he go
    H3212
    with thee?
  27. 27. But Absalom
    H53
    pressed
    H6555
    him, that he let Amnon
    H550
    and all the king's
    H4428
    sons
    H1121
    go
    H7971
    with him.
  28. 28. Now Absalom
    H53
    had commanded
    H6680
    his servants,
    H5288
    saying,
    H559
    Mark
    H7200
    ye now when Amnon's
    H550
    heart
    H3820
    is merry
    H2896
    with wine,
    H3196
    and when I say
    H559
    unto you, Smite
    H5221
    Amnon;
    H550
    then kill
    H4191
    him, fear
    H3372
    not: have not I commanded
    H6680
    you? be courageous,
    H2388
    and be valiant.
    H2428
    H1121
  29. 29. And the servants
    H5288
    of Absalom
    H53
    did
    H6213
    unto Amnon
    H550
    as Absalom
    H53
    had commanded.
    H6680
    Then all the king's
    H4428
    sons
    H1121
    arose,
    H6965
    and every man
    H376
    gat him up
    H7392
    upon his mule,
    H6505
    and fled.
    H5127
  30. 30. And it came to pass, while they were in the way,
    H1870
    that tidings
    H8052
    came
    H935
    to David,
    H1732
    saying,
    H559
    Absalom
    H53
    hath slain
    H5221
    all the king's
    H4428
    sons,
    H1121
    and there is not one
    H259
    of them left.
    H3498
  31. 31. Then the king
    H4428
    arose,
    H6965
    and tare
    H7167
    his garments,
    H899
    and lay
    H7901
    on the earth;
    H776
    and all his servants
    H5650
    stood
    H5324
    by with their clothes
    H899
    rent.
    H7167
  32. 32. And Jonadab,
    H3122
    the son
    H1121
    of Shimeah
    H8093
    David's
    H1732
    brother,
    H251
    answered
    H6030
    and said,
    H559
    Let not my lord
    H113
    suppose
    H559
    that they have slain
    H4191
    all the young men
    H5288
    the king's
    H4428
    sons;
    H1121
    for Amnon
    H550
    only is dead:
    H4191
    for by the appointment
    H6310
    of Absalom
    H53
    this hath been determined
    H7760
    from the day
    H3117
    that he forced
    H6031
    his sister
    H269
    Tamar.
    H8559
  33. 33. Now therefore let not my lord
    H113
    the king
    H4428
    take
    H7760
    the thing
    H1697
    to his heart,
    H3820
    to think
    H559
    that all the king's
    H4428
    sons
    H1121
    are dead:
    H4191
    for Amnon
    H550
    only is dead.
    H4191
  34. 34. But Absalom
    H53
    fled.
    H1272
    And the young man
    H5288
    that kept the watch
    H6822
    lifted up
    H5375
    his eyes,
    H5869
    and looked,
    H7200
    and, behold, there came
    H1980
    much
    H7227
    people
    H5971
    by the way
    H1870
    of the hill
    H2022
    side
    H6654
    behind
    H310
    him.
  35. 35. And Jonadab
    H3122
    said
    H559
    unto the king,
    H4428
    Behold, the king's
    H4428
    sons
    H1121
    come:
    H935
    as thy servant
    H5650
    said,
    H1697
    so it is.
  36. 36. And it came to pass, as soon as he had made an end
    H3615
    of speaking,
    H1696
    that, behold, the king's
    H4428
    sons
    H1121
    came,
    H935
    and lifted up
    H5375
    their voice
    H6963
    and wept:
    H1058
    and the king
    H4428
    also and all his servants
    H5650
    wept
    H1058
    very
    H3966
    sore.
    H1419
    H1065
  37. 37. But Absalom
    H53
    fled,
    H1272
    and went
    H3212
    to Talmai,
    H8526
    the son
    H1121
    of Ammihud,
    H5991
    H5989
    king
    H4428
    of Geshur.
    H1650
    And David mourned
    H56
    for his son
    H1121
    every day.
    H3117
  38. 38. So Absalom
    H53
    fled,
    H1272
    and went
    H3212
