Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem






Children and Families In The Bible



2 Samuel 13



23 Two years later, when Absalom’s sheepshearers were at Baal Hazor near the border of Ephraim, he invited all the king’s sons to come there. 24 Absalom went to the king and said, “Your servant has had shearers come. Will the king and his attendants please join me?”

25 “No, my son,” the king replied. “All of us should not go; we would only be a burden to you.” Although Absalom urged him, he still refused to go but gave him his blessing.

26 Then Absalom said, “If not, please let my brother Amnon come with us.”

The king asked him, “Why should he go with you?” 27 But Absalom urged him, so he sent with him Amnon and the rest of the king’s sons.

28 Absalom ordered his men, “Listen! When Amnon is in high spirits from drinking wine and I say to you, ‘Strike Amnon down,’ then kill him. Don’t be afraid. Haven’t I given you this order? Be strong and brave.” 29 So Absalom’s men did to Amnon what Absalom had ordered. Then all the king’s sons got up, mounted their mules and fled.

30 While they were on their way, the report came to David: “Absalom has struck down all the king’s sons; not one of them is left.” 31 The king stood up, tore his clothes and lay down on the ground; and all his attendants stood by with their clothes torn.

32 But Jonadab son of Shimeah, David’s brother, said, “My lord should not think that they killed all the princes; only Amnon is dead. This has been Absalom’s express intention ever since the day Amnon raped his sister Tamar. 33 My lord the king should not be concerned about the report that all the king’s sons are dead. Only Amnon is dead.”

34 Meanwhile, Absalom had fled.

Now the man standing watch looked up and saw many people on the road west of him, coming down the side of the hill. The watchman went and told the king, “I see men in the direction of Horonaim, on the side of the hill.”

35 Jonadab said to the king, “See, the king’s sons have come; it has happened just as your servant said.”

36 As he finished speaking, the king’s sons came in, wailing loudly. The king, too, and all his attendants wept very bitterly.

37 Absalom fled and went to Talmai son of Ammihud, the king of Geshur. But King David mourned many days for his son.

38 After Absalom fled and went to Geshur, he stayed there three years. 39 And King David longed to go to Absalom, for he was consoled concerning Amnon’s death.

Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem






The sordid tale of King David's dysfunctional family life continues with Absolom's murder of his half-brother Amnon. Notice that the ugly situation stewed for 2 YEARS before anyone took any action for the rape of Tamar. One wonders what happened to Tamar during this time.

Meanwhile, David listens to the wicked Jonadab, who has now insinuated himself into the confidence of the family, and who plants evil ideas in people's heads. I wonder if Shakespeare used the character of Jonadab to inspire the role of "Iago" in the Play "Othello".

Come and pray For the Peace of Jerusalem, For Our FRiends in Need, For Families, For Persecuted Believers, and for America.

EAGLES UP! Once more unto the breach, my friends, once more!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

Joining in prayer for all God’s people - for families with secrets and scandals and victims. May the wrongs be righted and healing for the emotionally wounded.

Since Mid July , this thread has been a daily study in Family Dynamics as illustrated in the Scriptures. Sometimes the stories have not been pretty. We have spoken of Cain and Abel, Jacob and Esau, Moses, David, Jacob and his sons, Joseph, Judah and Tamar, etc. We have discussed Jealousy, Sibling Rivalry, Divorce, Infidelity, Infertility, Old Age, Adultery, Love, Sex, Fratricide, Romance, and as host of other issues that pertain to the Family.

All through the series, the Redemptive power of the love of God has been a common thread, in spite of the depravity of humans.

ummmm...I guess that would be the point.(serious answer)

"The Banquet of Absolom"
Niccolò de Simone
(unk. - 1677?)


"AND IT CAME to pass after two full years, that Absalom had sheepshearers in Baalhazor, which is beside Ephraim: and Absalom invited all the king's sons.

And Absalom came to the king, and said, Behold now, thy servant hath sheepshearers; let the king, I beseech thee, and his servants go with thy servant.

And the king said to Absalom, Nay, my son, let us not all now go, lest we be chargeable unto thee. And he pressed him: howbeit he would not go, but blessed him.

Then said Absalom, If not, I pray thee, let my brother Amnon go with us. And the king said unto him, Why should he go with thee?

But Absalom pressed him, that he let Amnon and all the king's sons go with him.

Now Absalom had commanded his servants, saying, Mark ye now when Amnon's heart is merry with wine, and when I say unto you, Smite Amnon; then kill him, fear not: have not I commanded you? be courageous, and be valiant.

And the servants of Absalom did unto Amnon as Absalom had commanded."

2 Samuel 13:23-29 (KJV)
