Unchecked Copy Box2Sa 13:2 - Amnon was so vexed that he fell sick because of his sister Tamar; for she was a virgin; and it seemed hard to Amnon to do anything to her.

Unchecked Copy Box2Sa 13:3 - But Amnon had a friend, whose name was Yehonadav, the son of Shim`a, David's brother; and Yehonadav was a very subtle man.

Unchecked Copy Box2Sa 13:4 - He said to him, Why, son of the king, are you thus lean from day to day? Won't you tell me? Amnon said to him, I love Tamar, my brother Avshalom's sister.

Unchecked Copy Box2Sa 13:5 - Yehonadav said to him, Lay you down on your bed, and feign yourself sick: and when your father comes to see you, tell him, Please let my sister Tamar come and give me bread to eat, and dress the food in my sight, that I may see it, and eat it from her hand.

Unchecked Copy Box2Sa 13:6 - So Amnon lay down, and feigned himself sick: and when the king was come to see him, Amnon said to the king, Please let her sister Tamar come, and make me a couple of cakes in my sight, that I may eat from her hand.

Unchecked Copy Box2Sa 13:7 - Then David sent home to Tamar, saying, Go now to your brother Amnon's house, and dress him food.

Unchecked Copy Box2Sa 13:8 - So Tamar went to her brother Amnon's house; and he was laid down. She took dough, and kneaded it, and made cakes in his sight, and did bake the cakes.

Unchecked Copy Box2Sa 13:9 - She took the pan, and poured them out before him; but he refused to eat. Amnon said, Have out all men from me. They went out every man from him.

Unchecked Copy Box2Sa 13:10 - Amnon said to Tamar, Bring the food into the chamber, that I may eat from your hand. Tamar took the cakes which she had made, and brought them into the chamber to Amnon her brother.

Unchecked Copy Box2Sa 13:12 - She answered him, No, my brother, do not force me; for no such thing ought to be done in Yisra'el. Don't you do this folly.

Unchecked Copy Box2Sa 13:13 - I, where shall I carry my shame? and as for you, you will be as one of the fools in Yisra'el. Now therefore, please speak to the king; for he will not withhold me from you.

Unchecked Copy Box2Sa 13:15 - Then Amnon hated her with exceeding great hatred; for the hatred with which he hated her was greater than the love with which he had loved her. Amnon said to her, Arise, be gone.

Unchecked Copy Box2Sa 13:16 - She said to him, Not so, because this great wrong in putting me forth is worse than the other that you did to me. But he would not listen to her.

Unchecked Copy Box2Sa 13:17 - Then he called his servant who ministered to him, and said, Put now this woman out from me, and bolt the door after her.

Unchecked Copy Box2Sa 13:18 - She had a garment of various colors on her; for with such robes were the king's daughters who were virgins dressed. Then his servant brought her out, and bolted the door after her.

Unchecked Copy Box2Sa 13:20 - Avshalom her brother said to her, Has Amnon your brother been with you? but now hold your shalom, my sister: he is your brother; don't take this thing to heart. So Tamar remained desolate in her brother Avshalom's house.

Unchecked Copy Box2Sa 13:21 - But when king David heard of all these things, he was very angry.

Unchecked Copy Box2Sa 13:22 - Avshalom spoke to Amnon neither good nor bad; for Avshalom hated Amnon, because he had forced his sister Tamar.
