2 Samuel 13


1  And it came to pass1961 after310 this,3651 that Absalom53 the son1121 of David1732 had a fair3303 sister,269 whose name8034 was Tamar;8559 and Amnon550 the son1121 of David1732 loved157 her.

2  And Amnon550 was so vexed,6887 that he fell sick2470 for5668 his sister269 Tamar;8559 for3588 she1931 was a virgin;1330 and Amnon550 thought5869 it hard6381 for him to do6213 any thing3972 to her.

3  But Amnon550 had a friend,7453 whose name8034 was Jonadab,3122 the son1121 of Shimeah8093 David's1732 brother:251 and Jonadab3122 was a very3966 subtle2450 man.376

4  And he said559 unto him, Why4069 art thou,859 being the king's4428 son,1121 lean3602 1800 from day1242 to day?1242 wilt thou not3808 tell5046 me? And Amnon550 said559 unto him, I589 love157 853 Tamar,8559 my brother251 Absalom's53 sister.269

5  And Jonadab3122 said559 unto him, Lay thee down7901 on5921 thy bed,4904 and make thyself sick:2470 and when thy father1 cometh935 to see7200 thee, say559 unto413 him, I pray thee,4994 let my sister269 Tamar8559 come,935 and give1262 me meat,3899 and dress6213 853 the meat1279 in my sight,5869 that4616 834 I may see7200 it, and eat398 it at her hand.4480 3027

6  So Amnon550 lay down,7901 and made himself sick:2470 and when the king4428 was come935 to see7200 him, Amnon550 said559 unto413 the king,4428 I pray thee,4994 let Tamar8559 my sister269 come,935 and make3823 me a couple8147 of cakes3834 in my sight,5869 that I may eat1262 at her hand.4480 3027

7  Then David1732 sent7971 home1004 to413 Tamar,8559 saying,559 Go1980 now4994 to thy brother251 Amnon's550 house,1004 and dress6213 him meat.1279

8  So Tamar8559 went1980 to her brother251 Amnon's550 house;1004 and he1931 was laid down.7901 And she took3947 853 flour,1217 and kneaded3888 it, and made cakes3823 in his sight,5869 and did bake1310 853 the cakes.3834

9  And she took3947 853 a pan,4958 and poured them out3332 before6440 him; but he refused3985 to eat.398 And Amnon550 said,559 Have out3318 all3605 men376 from4480 5921 me. And they went out3318 every3605 man376 from4480 5921 him.

10  And Amnon550 said559 unto413 Tamar,8559 Bring935 the meat1279 into the chamber,2315 that I may eat1262 of thine hand.4480 3027 And Tamar8559 took3947 853 the cakes3834 which834 she had made,6213 and brought935 them into the chamber2315 to Amnon550 her brother.251

11  And when she had brought5066 them unto413 him to eat,398 he took hold2388 of her, and said559 unto her, Come935 lie7901 with5973 me, my sister.269

12  And she answered559 him, Nay,408 my brother,251 do not408 force6031 me; for3588 no3808 such thing3651 ought to be done6213 in Israel:3478 do6213 not408 thou 853 this2063 folly.5039

13  And I,589 whither575 shall I cause 853 my shame2781 to go?1980 and as for thee,859 thou shalt be1961 as one259 of the fools5036 in Israel.3478 Now6258 therefore, I pray thee,4994 speak1696 unto413 the king;4428 for3588 he will not3808 withhold4513 me from4480 thee.

14  Howbeit he would14 not3808 hearken8085 unto her voice:6963 but, being stronger2388 than she, forced6031 her, and lay with7901 her.

15  Then Amnon550 hated8130 her exceedingly;8135 1419 3966 so that3588 the hatred8135 wherewith834 he hated8130 her was greater1419 than the love4480 160 wherewith834 he had loved157 her. And Amnon550 said559 unto her, Arise,6965 be gone.1980

16  And she said559 unto him, There is no408 cause:182 this2063 evil7451 in sending me away7971 is greater1419 than the other4480 312 that834 thou didst6213 unto5973 me. But he would14 not3808 hearken8085 unto her.

17  Then he called7121 853 his servant5288 that ministered8334 unto him, and said,559 Put7971 now4994 853 this2063 woman out from me,4480 5921 2351 and bolt5274 the door1817 after310 her.

18  And she had a garment3801 of divers colors6446 upon5921 her: for3588 with such3651 robes4598 were the king's4428 daughters1323 that were virgins1330 appareled.3847 Then his servant8334 brought3318 her out,2351 and bolted5274 the door1817 after310 her.

19  And Tamar8559 put3947 ashes665 on5921 her head,7218 and rent7167 her garment3801 of divers colors6446 that834 was on5921 her, and laid7760 her hand3027 on5921 her head,7218 and went on1980 1980 crying.2199

20  And Absalom53 her brother251 said559 unto413 her, Hath Amnon550 thy brother251 been1961 with5973 thee? but hold2790 now6258 thy peace, my sister:269 he1931 is thy brother;251 regard7896 853 3820 not408 this2088 thing.1697 So Tamar8559 remained3427 desolate8074 in her brother251 Absalom's53 house.1004

21  But when king4428 David1732 heard8085 of 853 all3605 these428 things,1697 he was very3966 wroth.2734

22  And Absalom53 spoke1696 unto5973 his brother Amnon550 neither3808 good2896 nor5704 bad:4480 7451 for3588 Absalom53 hated8130 853 Amnon,550 because5921 1697 834 he had forced6031 853 his sister269 Tamar.8559

23  And it came to pass1961 after two full years,8141 3117 that Absalom53 had1961 sheepshearers1494 in Baal-hazor,1178 which834 is beside5973 Ephraim:669 and Absalom53 invited7121 all3605 the king's4428 sons.1121

24  And Absalom53 came935 to413 the king,4428 and said,559 Behold2009 now,4994 thy servant5650 hath sheepshearers;1494 let the king,4428 I beseech thee,4994 and his servants5650 go1980 with5973 thy servant.5650

25  And the king4428 said559 to413 Absalom,53 Nay,408 my son,1121 let us not408 all3605 now4994 go,1980 lest3808 we be chargeable3513 unto5921 thee. And he pressed6555 him: howbeit he would14 not3808 go,1980 but blessed1288 him.

26  Then said559 Absalom,53 If not,3808 I pray thee,4994 let my brother251 Amnon550 go1980 with854 us. And the king4428 said559 unto him, Why4100 should he go1980 with5973 thee?

27  But Absalom53 pressed6555 him, that he let 853 Amnon550 and all3605 the king's4428 sons1121 go7971 with854 him.

28  Now Absalom53 had commanded6680 853 his servants,5288 saying,559 Mark7200 ye now4994 when Amnon's550 heart3820 is merry2895 with wine,3196 and when I say559 unto413 you, Smite5221 853 Amnon;550 then kill4191 him, fear3372 not:408 have not3808 I595 commanded6680 you? be courageous,2388 and be1961 valiant.1121 2428

29  And the servants5288 of Absalom53 did6213 unto Amnon550 as834 Absalom53 had commanded.6680 Then all3605 the king's4428 sons1121 arose,6965 and every man376 got him up7392 upon5921 his mule,6505 and fled.5127

30  And it came to pass,1961 while they1992 were in the way,1870 that tidings8052 came935 to413 David,1732 saying,559 Absalom53 hath slain5221 853 all3605 the king's4428 sons,1121 and there is not3808 one259 of4480 them left.3498

31  Then the king4428 arose,6965 and tore7167 853 his garments,899 and lay7901 on the earth;776 and all3605 his servants5650 stood by5324 with their clothes899 rent.7167

32  And Jonadab,3122 the son1121 of Shimeah8093 David's1732 brother,251 answered6030 and said,559 Let not408 my lord113 suppose559 that they have slain4191 853 all3605 the young men5288 the king's4428 sons;1121 for3588 Amnon550 only905 is dead:4191 for3588 by5921 the appointment6310 of Absalom53 this hath been1961 determined7760 from the day4480 3117 that he forced6031 853 his sister269 Tamar.8559

33  Now6258 therefore let not408 my lord113 the king4428 take7760 the thing1697 to413 his heart,3820 to think559 that all3605 the king's4428 sons1121 are dead:4191 for3588 518 Amnon550 only905 is dead.4191

34  But Absalom53 fled.1272 And the young man5288 that kept the watch6822 lifted up5375 853 his eyes,5869 and looked,7200 and, behold,2009 there came1980 much7227 people5971 by the way4480 1870 of the hill side4480 6654 2022 behind310 him.

35  And Jonadab3122 said559 unto413 the king,4428 Behold,2009 the king's4428 sons1121 come:935 as thy servant5650 said,1697 so3651 it is.1961

36  And it came to pass,1961 as soon as he had made an end3615 of speaking,1696 that, behold,2009 the king's4428 sons1121 came,935 and lifted up5375 their voice6963 and wept:1058 and the king4428 also1571 and all3605 his servants5650 wept1058 very3966 sore.1419

37  But Absalom53 fled,1272 and went1980 to413 Talmai,8526 the son1121 of Ammihud,5989 king4428 of Geshur.1650 And David mourned56 for5921 his son1121 every3605 day.3117

38  So Absalom53 fled,1272 and went1980 to Geshur,1650 and was1961 there8033 three7969 years.8141

39  And the soul of king4428 David1732 longed3615 to go forth3318 unto413 Absalom:53 for3588 he was comforted5162 concerning5921 Amnon,550 seeing3588 he was dead.4191


1 καὶ ἐγενήθη μετὰ ταῦτα καὶ τῷ Αβεσσαλωμ υἱῷ Δαυιδ ἀδελφὴ καλὴ τῷ εἴδει σφόδρα καὶ ὄνομα αὐτῇ Θημαρ καὶ ἠγάπησεν αὐτὴν Αμνων υἱὸς Δαυιδ

2 καὶ ἐθλίβετο Αμνων ὥστε ἀρρωστεῖν διὰ Θημαρ τὴν ἀδελφὴν αὐτοῦ ὅτι παρθένος ἦν αὐτή καὶ ὑπέρογκον ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς Αμνων τοῦ ποιῆσαί τι αὐτῇ

3 καὶ ἦν τῷ Αμνων ἑταῖρος καὶ ὄνομα αὐτῷ Ιωναδαβ υἱὸς Σαμαα τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ Δαυιδ καὶ Ιωναδαβ ἀνὴρ σοφὸς σφόδρα

4 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ τί σοι ὅτι σὺ οὕτως ἀσθενής υἱὲ τοῦ βασιλέως τὸ πρωὶ πρωί οὐκ ἀπαγγελεῖς μοι καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Αμνων Θημαρ τὴν ἀδελφὴν Αβεσσαλωμ τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ μου ἐγὼ ἀγαπῶ

5 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Ιωναδαβ κοιμήθητι ἐπὶ τῆς κοίτης σου καὶ μαλακίσθητι καὶ εἰσελεύσεται ὁ πατήρ σου τοῦ ἰδεῖν σε καὶ ἐρεῖς πρὸς αὐτόν ἐλθέτω δὴ Θημαρ ἡ ἀδελφή μου καὶ ψωμισάτω με καὶ ποιησάτω κατ᾽ ὀφθαλμούς μου βρῶμα ὅπως ἴδω καὶ φάγω ἐκ τῶν χειρῶν αὐτῆς

6 καὶ ἐκοιμήθη Αμνων καὶ ἠρρώστησεν καὶ εἰσῆλθεν ὁ βασιλεὺς ἰδεῖν αὐτόν καὶ εἶπεν Αμνων πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα ἐλθέτω δὴ Θημαρ ἡ ἀδελφή μου πρός με καὶ κολλυρισάτω ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς μου δύο κολλυρίδας καὶ φάγομαι ἐκ τῆς χειρὸς αὐτῆς

7 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Δαυιδ πρὸς Θημαρ εἰς τὸν οἶκον λέγων πορεύθητι δὴ εἰς τὸν οἶκον Αμνων τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ σου καὶ ποίησον αὐτῷ βρῶμα

8 καὶ ἐπορεύθη Θημαρ εἰς τὸν οἶκον Αμνων ἀδελφοῦ αὐτῆς καὶ αὐτὸς κοιμώμενος καὶ ἔλαβεν τὸ σταῖς καὶ ἐφύρασεν καὶ ἐκολλύρισεν κατ᾽ ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἥψησεν τὰς κολλυρίδας

9 καὶ ἔλαβεν τὸ τήγανον καὶ κατεκένωσεν ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἠθέλησεν φαγεῖν καὶ εἶπεν Αμνων ἐξαγάγετε πάντα ἄνδρα ἐπάνωθέν μου καὶ ἐξήγαγον πάντα ἄνδρα ἀπὸ ἐπάνωθεν αὐτοῦ

10 καὶ εἶπεν Αμνων πρὸς Θημαρ εἰσένεγκε τὸ βρῶμα εἰς τὸ ταμίειον καὶ φάγομαι ἐκ τῆς χειρός σου καὶ ἔλαβεν Θημαρ τὰς κολλυρίδας ἃς ἐποίησεν καὶ εἰσήνεγκεν τῷ Αμνων ἀδελφῷ αὐτῆς εἰς τὸν κοιτῶνα

11 καὶ προσήγαγεν αὐτῷ τοῦ φαγεῖν καὶ ἐπελάβετο αὐτῆς καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῇ δεῦρο κοιμήθητι μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ ἀδελφή μου

12 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ μή ἄδελφέ μου μὴ ταπεινώσῃς με διότι οὐ ποιηθήσεται οὕτως ἐν Ισραηλ μὴ ποιήσῃς τὴν ἀφροσύνην ταύτην

13 καὶ ἐγὼ ποῦ ἀποίσω τὸ ὄνειδός μου καὶ σὺ ἔσῃ ὡς εἷς τῶν ἀφρόνων ἐν Ισραηλ καὶ νῦν λάλησον δὴ πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα ὅτι οὐ μὴ κωλύσῃ με ἀπὸ σοῦ

14 καὶ οὐκ ἠθέλησεν Αμνων τοῦ ἀκοῦσαι τῆς φωνῆς αὐτῆς καὶ ἐκραταίωσεν ὑπὲρ αὐτὴν καὶ ἐταπείνωσεν αὐτὴν καὶ ἐκοιμήθη μετ᾽ αὐτῆς

15 καὶ ἐμίσησεν αὐτὴν Αμνων μῖσος μέγα σφόδρα ὅτι μέγα τὸ μῖσος ὃ ἐμίσησεν αὐτήν ὑπὲρ τὴν ἀγάπην ἣν ἠγάπησεν αὐτήν καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῇ Αμνων ἀνάστηθι καὶ πορεύου

16 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Θημαρ μή ἄδελφε ὅτι μεγάλη ἡ κακία ἡ ἐσχάτη ὑπὲρ τὴν πρώτην ἣν ἐποίησας μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ τοῦ ἐξαποστεῖλαί με καὶ οὐκ ἠθέλησεν Αμνων ἀκοῦσαι τῆς φωνῆς αὐτῆς

17 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν τὸ παιδάριον αὐτοῦ τὸν προεστηκότα τοῦ οἴκου αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ἐξαποστείλατε δὴ ταύτην ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ ἔξω καὶ ἀπόκλεισον τὴν θύραν ὀπίσω αὐτῆς

18 καὶ ἐπ᾽ αὐτῆς ἦν χιτὼν καρπωτός ὅτι οὕτως ἐνεδιδύσκοντο αἱ θυγατέρες τοῦ βασιλέως αἱ παρθένοι τοὺς ἐπενδύτας αὐτῶν καὶ ἐξήγαγεν αὐτὴν ὁ λειτουργὸς αὐτοῦ ἔξω καὶ ἀπέκλεισεν τὴν θύραν ὀπίσω αὐτῆς

19 καὶ ἔλαβεν Θημαρ σποδὸν καὶ ἐπέθηκεν ἐπὶ τὴν κεφαλὴν αὐτῆς καὶ τὸν χιτῶνα τὸν καρπωτὸν τὸν ἐπ᾽ αὐτῆς διέρρηξεν καὶ ἐπέθηκεν τὰς χεῖρας αὐτῆς ἐπὶ τὴν κεφαλὴν αὐτῆς καὶ ἐπορεύθη πορευομένη καὶ κράζουσα

20 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτὴν Αβεσσαλωμ ὁ ἀδελφὸς αὐτῆς μὴ Αμνων ὁ ἀδελφός σου ἐγένετο μετὰ σοῦ καὶ νῦν ἀδελφή μου κώφευσον ὅτι ἀδελφός σού ἐστιν μὴ θῇς τὴν καρδίαν σου τοῦ λαλῆσαι εἰς τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο καὶ ἐκάθισεν Θημαρ χηρεύουσα ἐν οἴκῳ Αβεσσαλωμ τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτῆς

21 καὶ ἤκουσεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Δαυιδ πάντας τοὺς λόγους τούτους καὶ ἐθυμώθη σφόδρα καὶ οὐκ ἐλύπησεν τὸ πνεῦμα Αμνων τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ ὅτι ἠγάπα αὐτόν ὅτι πρωτότοκος αὐτοῦ ἦν

22 καὶ οὐκ ἐλάλησεν Αβεσσαλωμ μετὰ Αμνων ἀπὸ πονηροῦ ἕως ἀγαθοῦ ὅτι ἐμίσει Αβεσσαλωμ τὸν Αμνων ἐπὶ λόγου οὗ ἐταπείνωσεν Θημαρ τὴν ἀδελφὴν αὐτοῦ

23 καὶ ἐγένετο εἰς διετηρίδα ἡμερῶν καὶ ἦσαν κείροντες τῷ Αβεσσαλωμ ἐν Βελασωρ τῇ ἐχόμενα Εφραιμ καὶ ἐκάλεσεν Αβεσσαλωμ πάντας τοὺς υἱοὺς τοῦ βασιλέως

24 καὶ ἦλθεν Αβεσσαλωμ πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα καὶ εἶπεν ἰδοὺ δὴ κείρουσιν τῷ δούλῳ σου πορευθήτω δὴ ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ οἱ παῖδες αὐτοῦ μετὰ τοῦ δούλου σου

25 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς πρὸς Αβεσσαλωμ μὴ δή υἱέ μου μὴ πορευθῶμεν πάντες ἡμεῖς καὶ οὐ μὴ καταβαρυνθῶμεν ἐπὶ σέ καὶ ἐβιάσατο αὐτόν καὶ οὐκ ἠθέλησεν τοῦ πορευθῆναι καὶ εὐλόγησεν αὐτόν

26 καὶ εἶπεν Αβεσσαλωμ καὶ εἰ μή πορευθήτω δὴ μεθ᾽ ἡμῶν Αμνων ὁ ἀδελφός μου καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὁ βασιλεύς ἵνα τί πορευθῇ μετὰ σοῦ

27 καὶ ἐβιάσατο αὐτὸν Αβεσσαλωμ καὶ ἀπέστειλεν μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ τὸν Αμνων καὶ πάντας τοὺς υἱοὺς τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ἐποίησεν Αβεσσαλωμ πότον κατὰ τὸν πότον τοῦ βασιλέως

28 καὶ ἐνετείλατο Αβεσσαλωμ τοῖς παιδαρίοις αὐτοῦ λέγων ἴδετε ὡς ἂν ἀγαθυνθῇ ἡ καρδία Αμνων ἐν τῷ οἴνῳ καὶ εἴπω πρὸς ὑμᾶς πατάξατε τὸν Αμνων καὶ θανατώσατε αὐτόν μὴ φοβηθῆτε ὅτι οὐχὶ ἐγώ εἰμι ἐντέλλομαι ὑμῖν ἀνδρίζεσθε καὶ γίνεσθε εἰς υἱοὺς δυνάμεως

29 καὶ ἐποίησαν τὰ παιδάρια Αβεσσαλωμ τῷ Αμνων καθὰ ἐνετείλατο αὐτοῖς Αβεσσαλωμ καὶ ἀνέστησαν πάντες οἱ υἱοὶ τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ἐπεκάθισαν ἀνὴρ ἐπὶ τὴν ἡμίονον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔφυγαν

30 καὶ ἐγένετο αὐτῶν ὄντων ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ καὶ ἡ ἀκοὴ ἦλθεν πρὸς Δαυιδ λέγων ἐπάταξεν Αβεσσαλωμ πάντας τοὺς υἱοὺς τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ οὐ κατελείφθη ἐξ αὐτῶν οὐδὲ εἷς

31 καὶ ἀνέστη ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ διέρρηξεν τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐκοιμήθη ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ πάντες οἱ παῖδες αὐτοῦ οἱ περιεστῶτες αὐτῷ διέρρηξαν τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτῶν

32 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη Ιωναδαβ υἱὸς Σαμαα ἀδελφοῦ Δαυιδ καὶ εἶπεν μὴ εἰπάτω ὁ κύριός μου ὁ βασιλεὺς ὅτι πάντα τὰ παιδάρια τοὺς υἱοὺς τοῦ βασιλέως ἐθανάτωσεν ὅτι Αμνων μονώτατος ἀπέθανεν ὅτι ἐπὶ στόματος Αβεσσαλωμ ἦν κείμενος ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας ἧς ἐταπείνωσεν Θημαρ τὴν ἀδελφὴν αὐτοῦ

33 καὶ νῦν μὴ θέσθω ὁ κύριός μου ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐπὶ τὴν καρδίαν αὐτοῦ ῥῆμα λέγων πάντες οἱ υἱοὶ τοῦ βασιλέως ἀπέθαναν ὅτι ἀλλ᾽ ἢ Αμνων μονώτατος ἀπέθανεν

34 καὶ ἀπέδρα Αβεσσαλωμ καὶ ἦρεν τὸ παιδάριον ὁ σκοπὸς τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶδεν καὶ ἰδοὺ λαὸς πολὺς πορευόμενος ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ ὄπισθεν αὐτοῦ ἐκ πλευρᾶς τοῦ ὄρους ἐν τῇ καταβάσει καὶ παρεγένετο ὁ σκοπὸς καὶ ἀπήγγειλεν τῷ βασιλεῖ καὶ εἶπεν ἄνδρας ἑώρακα ἐκ τῆς ὁδοῦ τῆς Ωρωνην ἐκ μέρους τοῦ ὄρους

35 καὶ εἶπεν Ιωναδαβ πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα ἰδοὺ οἱ υἱοὶ τοῦ βασιλέως πάρεισιν κατὰ τὸν λόγον τοῦ δούλου σου οὕτως ἐγένετο

36 καὶ ἐγένετο ἡνίκα συνετέλεσεν λαλῶν καὶ ἰδοὺ οἱ υἱοὶ τοῦ βασιλέως ἦλθαν καὶ ἐπῆραν τὴν φωνὴν αὐτῶν καὶ ἔκλαυσαν καί γε ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ πάντες οἱ παῖδες αὐτοῦ ἔκλαυσαν κλαυθμὸν μέγαν σφόδρα

37 καὶ Αβεσσαλωμ ἔφυγεν καὶ ἐπορεύθη πρὸς Θολμαι υἱὸν Εμιουδ βασιλέα Γεδσουρ εἰς γῆν Μαχαδ καὶ ἐπένθησεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Δαυιδ ἐπὶ τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας

38 καὶ Αβεσσαλωμ ἀπέδρα καὶ ἐπορεύθη εἰς Γεδσουρ καὶ ἦν ἐκεῖ ἔτη τρία

39 καὶ ἐκόπασεν τὸ πνεῦμα τοῦ βασιλέως τοῦ ἐξελθεῖν ὀπίσω Αβεσσαλωμ ὅτι παρεκλήθη ἐπὶ Αμνων ὅτι ἀπέθανεν

1 Factum est autem post hæc ut Absalom filii David sororem speciosissimam, vocabulo Thamar, adamaret Amnon filius David,

2 et deperiret eam valde, ita ut propter amorem ejus ægrotaret: quia cum esset virgo, difficile ei videbatur ut quippiam inhoneste ageret cum ea.

3 Erat autem Amnon amicus nomine Jonadab, filius Semmaa fratris David, vir prudens valde.

4 Qui dixit ad eum: Quare sic attenuaris macie, fili regis, per singulos dies? cur non indicas mihi? Dixitque ei Amnon: Thamar sororem fratris mei Absalom amo.

5 Cui respondit Jonadab: Cuba super lectum tuum, et languorem simula: cumque venerit pater tuus ut visitet te, dic ei: Veniat, oro, Thamar soror mea, ut det mihi cibum, et faciat pulmentum, ut comedam de manu ejus.

6 Accubuit itaque Amnon, et quasi ægrotare cœpit: cumque venisset rex ad visitandum eum, ait Amnon ad regem: Veniat, obsecro, Thamar soror mea, ut faciat in oculis meis duas sorbitiunculas, et cibum capiam de manu ejus.

7 Misit ergo David ad Thamar domum, dicens: Veni in domum Amnon fratris tui, et fac ei pulmentum.

8 Venitque Thamar in domum Amnon fratris sui: ille autem jacebat. Quæ tollens farinam commiscuit, et liquefaciens, in oculis ejus coxit sorbitiunculas.

9 Tollensque quod coxerat, effudit, et posuit coram eo, et noluit comedere: dixitque Amnon: Ejicite universos a me. Cumque ejecissent omnes,

10 dixit Amnon ad Thamar: Infer cibum in conclave, ut vescar de manu tua. Tulit ergo Thamar sorbitiunculas quas fecerat, et intulit ad Amnon fratrem suum in conclave.

11 Cumque obtulisset ei cibum, apprehendit eam, et ait: Veni, cuba mecum, soror mea.

12 Quæ respondit ei: Noli frater mi, noli opprimere me: neque enim hoc fas est in Israël: noli facere stultitiam hanc.

13 Ego enim ferre non potero opprobrium meum, et tu eris quasi unus de insipientibus in Israël: quin potius loquere ad regem, et non negabit me tibi.

14 Noluit autem acquiescere precibus ejus, sed prævalens viribus oppressit eam, et cubavit cum ea.

15 Et exosam eam habuit Amnon odio magno nimis: ita ut majus esset odium quo oderat eam, amore quo ante dilexerat. Dixitque ei Amnon: Surge, et vade.

16 Quæ respondit ei: Majus est hoc malum quod nunc agis adversum me, quam quod ante fecisti, expellens me. Et noluit audire eam:

17 sed vocato puero qui ministrabat ei, dixit: Ejice hanc a me foras, et claude ostium post eam.

18 Quæ induta erat talari tunica: hujuscemodi enim filiæ regis virgines vestibus utebantur. Ejecit itaque eam minister illius foras: clausitque fores post eam.

19 Quæ aspergens cinerem capiti suo, scissa talari tunica, impositisque manibus super caput suum, ibat ingrediens, et clamans.

20 Dixit autem ei Absalom frater suus: Numquid Amnon frater tuus concubuit tecum? sed nunc soror, tace: frater tuus est: neque affligas cor tuum pro hac re. Mansit itaque Thamar contabescens in domo Absalom fratris sui.

21 Cum autem audisset rex David verba hæc, contristatus est valde: et noluit contristare spiritum Amnon filii sui, quoniam diligebat eum, quia primogenitus erat ei.

22 Porro non est locutus Absalom ad Amnon nec malum nec bonum: oderat enim Absalom Amnon, eo quod violasset Thamar sororem suam.

23 Factum est autem post tempus biennii ut tonderentur oves Absalom in Baalhasor, quæ est juxta Ephraim: et vocavit Absalom omnes filios regis,

24 venitque ad regem, et ait ad eum: Ecce tondentur oves servi tui: veniat, oro, rex cum servis suis ad servum suum.

25 Dixitque rex ad Absalom: Noli fili mi, noli rogare ut veniamus omnes et gravemus te. Cum autem cogeret eum, et noluisset ire, benedixit ei.

26 Et ait Absalom: Si non vis venire, veniat, obsecro, nobiscum saltem Amnon frater meus. Dixitque ad eum rex: Non est necesse ut vadat tecum.

27 Coëgit itaque Absalom eum, et dimisit cum eo Amnon et universos filios regis. Feceratque Absalom convivium quasi convivium regis.

28 Præceperat autem Absalom pueris suis, dicens: Observate cum temulentus fuerit Amnon vino, et dixero vobis: Percutite eum, et interficite: nolite timere: ego enim sum qui præcipio vobis: roboramini, et estote viri fortes.

29 Fecerunt ergo pueri Absalom adversum Amnon sicut præceperat eis Absalom. Surgentesque omnes filii regis ascenderunt singuli mulas suas, et fugerunt.

30 Cumque adhuc pergerent in itinere, fama pervenit ad David, dicens: Percussit Absalom omnes filios regis, et non remansit ex eis saltem unus.

31 Surrexit itaque rex, et scidit vestimenta sua, et cecidit super terram: et omnes servi illius qui assistebant ei, sciderunt vestimenta sua.

32 Respondens autem Jonadab filius Semmaa fratris David, dixit: Ne æstimet dominus meus rex quod omnes pueri filii regis occisi sint: Amnon solus mortuus est, quoniam in ore Absalom erat positus ex die qua oppressit Thamar sororem ejus.

33 Nunc ergo ne ponat dominus meus rex super cor suum verbum istud, dicens: Omnes filii regis occisi sunt: quoniam Amnon solus mortuus est.

34 Fugit autem Absalom. Et elevavit puer speculator oculos suos, et aspexit: et ecce populus multus veniebat per iter devium ex latere montis.

35 Dixit autem Jonadab ad regem: Ecce filii regis adsunt: juxta verbum servi tui, sic factum est.

36 Cumque cessasset loqui, apparuerunt et filii regis: et intrantes levaverunt vocem suam, et fleverunt: sed et rex et omnes servi ejus fleverunt ploratu magno nimis.

37 Porro Absalom fugiens abiit ad Tholomai filium Ammiud regem Gessur. Luxit ergo David filium suum cunctis diebus.

38 Absalom autem cum fugisset, et venisset in Gessur, fuit ibi tribus annis.

39 Cessavitque rex David persequi Absalom, eo quod consolatus esset super Amnon interitu.
