You will betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her. You will build a house, and you won’t dwell in it. You will plant a vineyard, and not use its fruit.
2 Samuel 16 21-2 Samuel 16 22
Ahithophel said to Absalom,“ Go in to your father’s concubines that he has left to keep the house. Then all Israel will hear that you are abhorred by your father. Then the hands of all who are with you will be strong.”So they spread a tent for Absalom on the top of the house, and Absalom went in to his father’s concubines in the sight of all Israel.
2 Samuel 13 28-2 Samuel 13 29
Absalom commanded his servants, saying,“ Mark now, when Amnon’s heart is merry with wine; and when I tell you,‘ Strike Amnon,’ then kill him. Don’t be afraid. Haven’t I commanded you? Be courageous, and be valiant!”The servants of Absalom did to Amnon as Absalom had commanded. Then all the king’s sons arose, and every man got up on his mule, and fled.
2 Samuel 15 6
Absalom did this sort of thing to all Israel who came to the king for judgment. So Absalom stole the hearts of the men of Israel.
2 Samuel 15 10
But Absalom sent spies throughout all the tribes of Israel, saying,“ As soon as you hear the sound of the trumpet, then you shall say,‘ Absalom is king in Hebron!’”
2 Samuel 13 1-2 Samuel 13 14
After this, Absalom the son of David had a beautiful sister, whose name was Tamar; and Amnon the son of David loved her.Amnon was so troubled that he became sick because of his sister Tamar; for she was a virgin; and it seemed hard to Amnon to do anything to her.But Amnon had a friend, whose name was Jonadab, the son of Shimeah, David’s brother; and Jonadab was a very subtle man.He said to him,“ Why, son of the king, are you so sad from day to day? Won’t you tell me?” Amnon said to him,“ I love Tamar, my brother Absalom’s sister.”Jonadab said to him,“ Lay down on your bed, and pretend to be sick. When your father comes to see you, tell him,‘ Please let my sister Tamar come and give me bread to eat, and prepare the food in my sight, that I may see it, and eat it from her hand.’”So Amnon lay down and faked being sick. When the king came to see him, Amnon said to the king,“ Please let my sister Tamar come, and make me a couple of cakes in my sight, that I may eat from her hand.”Then David sent home to Tamar, saying,“ Go now to your brother Amnon’s house, and prepare food for him.”So Tamar went to her brother Amnon’s house; and he was lying down. She took dough, and kneaded it, made cakes in his sight, and baked the cakes.She took the pan, and poured them out before him; but he refused to eat. Amnon said,“ Have all men leave me.” Then every man went out from him.Amnon said to Tamar,“ Bring the food into the room, that I may eat from your hand.” Tamar took the cakes which she had made, and brought them into the room to Amnon her brother.When she had brought them near to him to eat, he took hold of her, and said to her,“ Come, lie with me, my sister!”She answered him,“ No, my brother, do not force me! For no such thing ought to be done in Israel. Don’t you do this folly.As for me, where would I carry my shame? And as for you, you will be as one of the fools in Israel. Now therefore, please speak to the king; for he will not withhold me from you.”However he would not listen to her voice; but being stronger than she, he forced her, and lay with her.
Moreover also I gave them statutes that were not good, and ordinances in which they should not live.I polluted them in their own gifts, in that they caused all that opens the womb to pass through the fire, that I might make them desolate, to the end that they might know that I am Yahweh.”’
They sacrifice on the tops of the mountains, and burn incense on the hills, under oaks and poplars and terebinths, because its shade is good. Therefore your daughters play the prostitute, and your brides commit adultery.I will not punish your daughters when they play the prostitute, nor your brides when they commit adultery; because the men consort with prostitutes, and they sacrifice with the shrine prostitutes; so the people without understanding will come to ruin.
“‘“ If the prophet is deceived and speaks a word, I, Yahweh, have deceived that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand on him, and will destroy him from among my people Israel.
