(Read 2 Samuel 13 Part 1 First)

29 So at Absalom's signal they murdered Amnon. Then the other sons of the king jumped on their mules and fled.

30 As they were on the way back to Jerusalem, this report reached David: "Absalom has killed all your sons; not one is left alive!"

31 The king jumped up, tore his robe, and fell prostrate on the ground. His advisers also tore their clothes in horror and sorrow.

32 But just then Jonadab, the son of David's brother Shimea, arrived and said, "No, not all your sons have been killed! It was only Amnon! Absalom has been plotting this ever since Amnon raped his sister Tamar.

33 No, your sons aren't all dead! It was only Amnon."

34 Meanwhile Absalom escaped. Then the watchman on the Jerusalem wall saw a great crowd coming toward the city from the west. He ran to tell the king, "I see a crowd of people coming from the Horonaim road* along the side of the hill."1

35 "Look!" Jonadab told the king. "There they are now! Your sons are coming, just as I said."

36 They soon arrived, weeping and sobbing, and the king and his officials wept bitterly with them.

37 And David mourned many days for his son Amnon. Absalom fled to his grandfather, Talmai son of Ammihud, the king of Geshur.

38 He stayed there in Geshur for three years.

39 And David, now reconciled to Amnon's death, longed to be reunited with his son Absalom.*2
