13:1 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.

13:2 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.(Amnon thought: Heb. it was marvellous, or, hidden in the eyes of Amnon)

13:3 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] .

13:4 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] .(lean: Heb. thin)(from day: Heb. morning by morning)

13:5 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] .

13:6 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] .

13:7 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] .

13:8 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] .(flour: or, paste)

13:9 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.

13:10 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] .

13:11 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] .

13:12 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] .(force: Heb. humble me)(no such: Heb. it ought not so to be done)

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.

13:14 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.

13:15 Then Amnon [H550] hated [H8130] her exceedingly [H3966] [H1419] ; 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] .(exceedingly: Heb. with great hatred greatly)

13:16 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.

13:17 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.

13:18 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.

13:19 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] .

13:20 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] .(Amnon: Heb. Aminon)(regard: Heb. set not thy heart)(desolate: Heb. and desolate)

13:21 But when king [H4428] David [H1732] heard [H8085] of all these things [H1697] , he was very [H3966] wroth [H2734] .

13:22 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] .

13:23 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] .

13:24 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] .

13:25 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.

13:26 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?

13:27 But Absalom [H53] pressed [H6555] him, that he let Amnon [H550] and all the king's [H4428] sons [H1121] go [H7971] with him.

13:28 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 [H1121] [H2428] .(have: or, will you not, since I have commanded you?)(valiant: Heb. sons of valour)

13:29 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] .(gat: Heb. rode)

13:30 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] .

13:31 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] .

13:32 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] .(appointment: Heb. mouth)(determined: or, settled)

13:33 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] .

13:34 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.

13:35 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.(as thy: Heb. according to the word of thy servant)

13:36 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 [H1065] [H1419] .(very: Heb. with a great weeping greatly)

13:37 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] .(Ammihud: or, Ammihur)

13:38 So Absalom [H53] fled [H1272] , and went [H3212] to Geshur [H1650] , and was there three [H7969] years [H8141] .

13:39 And [the soul of] king [H4428] David [H1732] longed [H3615] to go forth [H3318] unto Absalom [H53] : for he was comforted [H5162] concerning Amnon [H550] , seeing he was dead [H4191] .(longed: or, was consumed)
