    Then Absalom her brother said to her,“ Has Amnon your brother been with you? But now keep silent, my sister, he is your brother; do not take this matter to heart.” So Tamar remained and was isolated in her brother Absalom’s house.Now when King David heard about all these matters, he became very angry.But Absalom did not speak with Amnon either good or bad; for Absalom hated Amnon because he had violated his sister Tamar.Now it came about after two full years that Absalom had sheepshearers in Baal hazor, which is near Ephraim, and Absalom invited all the king’s sons to celebrate.And Absalom came to the king and said,“ Behold now, your servant has sheepshearers; may the king and his servants please go with your servant.”But the king said to Absalom,“ No, my son, we should not all go, so that we will not be a burden to you.” Though he urged him, he would not go; but he blessed him.Then Absalom said,“ If not, please have my brother Amnon go with us.” But the king said to him,“ Why should he go with you?”Nevertheless Absalom urged him, so he let Amnon and all the king’s sons go with him.Then Absalom commanded his servants, saying,“ See now, when Amnon’s heart is cheerful with wine, and I say to you,‘ Strike Amnon,’ then put him to death. Do not fear; have I not commanded you myself? Be courageous and be valiant.”

    Furthermore, Ahithophel said to Absalom,“ Please let me choose twelve thousand men and let me set out and pursue David tonight.And I will attack him while he is weary and exhausted and startle him, so that all the people who are with him will flee. Then I will strike and kill the king when he is alone,and I will bring all the people back to you. The return of everyone depends on the man whom you are seeking; then all the people will be at peace.”And the plan pleased Absalom and all the elders of Israel.Nevertheless, Absalom said,“ Now call Hushai the Archite also, and let’s hear what he has to say.”When Hushai had come to Absalom, Absalom said to him,“ Ahithophel has proposed this plan. Should we carry out his plan? If not, say so yourself.”So Hushai said to Absalom,“ This time the advice that Ahithophel has given is not good.”Then Hushai said,“ You yourself know your father and his men, that they are warriors and they are fierce, like a bear deprived of her cubs in the field. And your father is an expert in warfare, and he will not spend the night with the people.Behold, he has now hidden himself in one of the ravines, or in another place; and it will be that when he falls on them at the first attack, whoever hears it will say,‘ There has been a slaughter among the people who follow Absalom!’And even the one who is valiant, whose heart is like the heart of a lion, will completely despair; for all Israel knows that your father is a mighty man, and those who are with him are valiant men.But I advise that all Israel be fully gathered to you, from Dan even to Beersheba, like the sand that is by the sea in abundance; and that you personally go into battle.Then we will come to him in one of the places where he can be found, and we will fall on him just as the dew falls on the ground; and of him and of all the men who are with him, not even one will be left.And if he withdraws into a city, then all Israel shall bring ropes to that city, and we will drag it into the valley until not even a pebble is found there.”Then Absalom and all the men of Israel said,“ The advice of Hushai the Archite is better than the advice of Ahithophel.” For the Lord had ordained to foil the good advice of Ahithophel, in order for the Lord to bring disaster on Absalom.

  • 2 Samuel 18 9-2 Samuel 18 18
    Now Absalom encountered the servants of David. Absalom was riding on his mule, and the mule went under the branches of a massive oak. Then his head caught firmly in the oak, and he was left hanging between the sky and earth, while the mule that was under him kept going.When a certain man saw him, he informed Joab and said,“ Behold, I saw Absalom hanging in an oak.”Then Joab said to the man who had informed him,“ So behold, you saw him! Why then did you not strike him there to the ground? And it would have been my duty to give you ten pieces of silver and a belt.”But the man said to Joab,“ Even if I were to receive a thousand pieces of silver in my hand, I would not put out my hand against the king’s son; for in our hearing the king commanded you, Abishai, and Ittai, saying,‘ Protect the young man Absalom for me!’Otherwise, if I had dealt treacherously against his life( and there is nothing hidden from the king), then you yourself would have avoided me.”Then Joab said,“ I will not waste time here with you.” So he took three spears in his hand and thrust them through the heart of Absalom while he was still alive in the midst of the oak.And ten young men who carried Joab’s armor gathered around and struck Absalom and killed him.Then Joab blew the trumpet, and the people returned from pursuing Israel, for Joab restrained the people.And they took Absalom and threw him into a deep pit in the forest, and erected over him a very large pile of stones. And all Israel fled, each to his own tent.Now Absalom in his lifetime had taken and set up for himself a memorial stone, which is in the King’s Valley, for he said,“ I have no son to continue my name.” So he named the memorial stone after his own name, and it is called Absalom’s Monument to this day.
  • 2 Samuel 14 24-2 Samuel 15 18
    However, the king said,“ He shall return to his own house, but he shall not see my face.” So Absalom returned to his own house and did not see the king’s face.Now in all Israel there was no one as handsome as Absalom, so highly praised; from the sole of his foot to the top of his head there was no impairment in him.And when he cut the hair of his head( and it was at the end of every year that he cut it, because it was heavy on him, so he cut it), he weighed the hair of his head at two hundred shekels by the king’s weight.And to Absalom there were born three sons, and one daughter whose name was Tamar; she was a woman of beautiful appearance.Now Absalom lived two full years in Jerusalem, yet he did not see the king’s face.Then Absalom sent for Joab, to send him to the king, but he would not come to him. So he sent word again a second time, but he would not come.Therefore he said to his servants,“ See, Joab’s plot is next to mine, and he has barley there; go and set it on fire.” So Absalom’s servants set the plot on fire.Then Joab got up, came to Absalom at his house, and said to him,“ Why have your servants set my plot on fire?”Absalom answered Joab,“ Behold, I sent for you, saying,‘ Come here, so that I may send you to the king, to say,“ Why have I come from Geshur? It would be better for me still to be there.” ’ Now then, let me see the king’s face, and if there is guilt in me, he can have me executed.”So when Joab came to the king and told him, he summoned Absalom. Then Absalom came to the king and prostrated himself with his face to the ground before the king; and the king kissed Absalom.Now it came about after this that Absalom provided for himself a chariot and horses, and fifty men to run ahead of him.And Absalom used to rise early and stand beside the road to the gate; and when any man who had a lawsuit was to come before the king for judgment, Absalom would call out to him and say,“ From what city are you?” And he would say,“ Your servant is from one of the tribes of Israel.”Then Absalom would say to him,“ See, your claims are good and right, but you have no one to listen to you on the part of the king.”Moreover, Absalom would say,“ Oh that someone would appoint me judge in the land, then every man who has a lawsuit or claim could come to me, and I would give him justice!”And whenever a man approached to prostrate himself before him, he would put out his hand and take hold of him and kiss him.Absalom dealt this way with all Israel who came to the king for judgment; so Absalom stole the hearts of the people of Israel.Now it came about at the end of four years that Absalom said to the king,“ Please let me go and pay my vow which I have made to the Lord, in Hebron.For your servant made a vow while I was living in Geshur in Aram, saying,‘ If the Lord will indeed bring me back to Jerusalem, then I will serve the Lord.’ ”The king said to him,“ Go in peace.” So he got up and went to Hebron.But Absalom sent spies throughout the tribes of Israel, saying,“ As soon as you hear the sound of the trumpet, then you shall say,‘ Absalom is king in Hebron!’ ”Then two hundred men went with Absalom from Jerusalem, who were invited and went innocently, for they did not know anything.And Absalom sent for Ahithophel the Gilonite, David’s counselor, from his city Giloh, while he was offering the sacrifices. And the conspiracy was strong, for the people continually increased with Absalom.Then a messenger came to David, saying,“ The hearts of the people of Israel are with Absalom.”So David said to all his servants who were with him in Jerusalem,“ Arise and let’s flee, for otherwise none of us will escape from Absalom. Go quickly, or he will hurry and overtake us, and bring disaster on us and strike the city with the edge of the sword.”Then the king’s servants said to the king,“ Behold, your servants will do whatever my lord the king chooses.”So the king left, and all his household with him; but the king left ten concubines behind to take care of the house.The king left, and all the people with him, and they stopped at the last house.Now all of his servants passed by beside him, and all the Cherethites, all the Pelethites, and all the Gittites, six hundred men who had come with him from Gath, passed by before the king.
