King James Version

2 Samuel 13:1-39

1And it came to pass after this, that Absalom the son of David had a fair sister, whose name was Tamar; and Amnon the son of David loved her. 2And Amnon was so vexed, that he fell sick for his sister Tamar; for she was a virgin; and Amnon thought it hard for him to do any thing to her.13.2 Amnon thought…: Heb. it was marvellous, or, hidden in the eyes of Amnon 3But Amnon had a friend, whose name was Jonadab, the son of Shimeah David’s brother: and Jonadab was a very subtil man. 4And he said unto him, Why art thou, being the king’s son, lean from day to day? wilt thou not tell me? And Amnon said unto him, I love Tamar, my brother Absalom’s sister.13.4 lean: Heb. thin13.4 from day…: Heb. morning by morning 5And Jonadab said unto him, Lay thee down on thy bed, and make thyself sick: and when thy father cometh to see thee, say unto him, I pray thee, let my sister Tamar come, and give me meat, and dress the meat in my sight, that I may see it, and eat it at her hand.

6¶ So Amnon lay down, and made himself sick: and when the king was come to see him, Amnon said unto the king, I pray thee, let Tamar my sister come, and make me a couple of cakes in my sight, that I may eat at her hand. 7Then David sent home to Tamar, saying, Go now to thy brother Amnon’s house, and dress him meat. 8So Tamar went to her brother Amnon’s house; and he was laid down. And she took flour, and kneaded it, and made cakes in his sight, and did bake the cakes.13.8 flour: or, paste 9And she took a pan, and poured them out before him; but he refused to eat. And Amnon said, Have out all men from me. And they went out every man from him. 10And Amnon said unto Tamar, Bring the meat into the chamber, that I may eat of thine hand. And Tamar took the cakes which she had made, and brought them into the chamber to Amnon her brother. 11And when she had brought them unto him to eat, he took hold of her, and said unto her, Come lie with me, my sister. 12And she answered him, Nay, my brother, do not force me; for no such thing ought to be done in Israel: do not thou this folly.13.12 force…: Heb. humble me13.12 no such…: Heb. it ought not so to be done 13And I, whither shall I cause my shame to go? and as for thee, thou shalt be as one of the fools in Israel. Now therefore, I pray thee, speak unto the king; for he will not withhold me from thee. 14Howbeit he would not hearken unto her voice: but, being stronger than she, forced her, and lay with her.

15¶ Then Amnon hated her exceedingly; so that the hatred wherewith he hated her was greater than the love wherewith he had loved her. And Amnon said unto her, Arise, be gone.13.15 exceedingly: Heb. with great hatred greatly 16And she said unto him, There is no cause: this evil in sending me away is greater than the other that thou didst unto me. But he would not hearken unto her. 17Then he called his servant that ministered unto him, and said, Put now this woman out from me, and bolt the door after her. 18And she had a garment of divers colours upon her: for with such robes were the king’s daughters that were virgins apparelled. Then his servant brought her out, and bolted the door after her.

19¶ And Tamar put ashes on her head, and rent her garment of divers colours that was on her, and laid her hand on her head, and went on crying. 20And Absalom her brother said unto her, Hath Amnon thy brother been with thee? but hold now thy peace, my sister: he is thy brother; regard not this thing. So Tamar remained desolate in her brother Absalom’s house.13.20 Amnon: Heb. Aminon13.20 regard…: Heb. set not thy heart13.20 desolate: Heb. and desolate

21¶ But when king David heard of all these things, he was very wroth. 22And Absalom spake unto his brother Amnon neither good nor bad: for Absalom hated Amnon, because he had forced his sister Tamar.

23¶ And it came to pass after two full years, that Absalom had sheepshearers in Baal-hazor, which is beside Ephraim: and Absalom invited all the king’s sons. 24And 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. 25And 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. 26Then 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? 27But Absalom pressed him, that he let Amnon and all the king’s sons go with him.

28¶ 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.13.28 have…: or, will you not, since I have commanded you?13.28 valiant: Heb. sons of valour 29And the servants of Absalom did unto Amnon as Absalom had commanded. Then all the king’s sons arose, and every man gat him up upon his mule, and fled.13.29 gat…: Heb. rode

30¶ And it came to pass, while they were in the way, that tidings came to David, saying, Absalom hath slain all the king’s sons, and there is not one of them left. 31Then the king arose, and tare his garments, and lay on the earth; and all his servants stood by with their clothes rent. 32And Jonadab, the son of Shimeah David’s brother, answered and said, Let not my lord suppose that they have slain all the young men the king’s sons; for Amnon only is dead: for by the appointment of Absalom this hath been determined from the day that he forced his sister Tamar.13.32 appointment: Heb. mouth13.32 determined: or, settled 33Now therefore let not my lord the king take the thing to his heart, to think that all the king’s sons are dead: for Amnon only is dead. 34But Absalom fled. And the young man that kept the watch lifted up his eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came much people by the way of the hill side behind him. 35And Jonadab said unto the king, Behold, the king’s sons come: as thy servant said, so it is.13.35 as thy…: Heb. according to the word of thy servant 36And it came to pass, as soon as he had made an end of speaking, that, behold, the king’s sons came, and lifted up their voice and wept: and the king also and all his servants wept very sore.13.36 very…: Heb. with a great weeping greatly

37¶ But Absalom fled, and went to Talmai, the son of Ammihud, king of Geshur. And David mourned for his son every day.13.37 Ammihud: or, Ammihur 38So Absalom fled, and went to Geshur, and was there three years. 39And the soul of king David longed to go forth unto Absalom: for he was comforted concerning Amnon, seeing he was dead.13.39 longed: or, was consumed

Ang Pulong Sa Dios

2 Samuel 13:1-39

Si Amnon ug si Tamar

1May matahom nga anak si David nga ginganlag Tamar, ug igsoon siya ni Absalom. Ug kini si Amnon, nga igsoon ni Tamar sa amahan, nakagusto kaniya. 2Apan dili niya mahimo ang iyang gusto nga himuon kang Tamar tungod kay dalaga kini nga putli ug kanunay may nagabantay kaniya. Tungod niini, naglain ang iyang buot hangtod nga nagsakit siya.

3May amigo si Amnon nga ginganlan ug Jonadab. Maro kaayo kining tawhana. Anak siya sa igsoon ni David nga si Shimea. 4Usa ka adlaw niana, giingnan niya si Amnon, “Anak ka sa hari, apan nganong kada adlaw kanunay ko ikaw nga makita nga nagluya? Sultihi kuno ko sa imong problema.” Miingon si Amnon kaniya, “Nakagusto ako kang Tamar, ang igsoon sa akong igsoon sa amahan nga si Absalom.” 5Miingon si Jonadab, “Higda ug pagpasakit-sakit. Kon mobisita ang imong amahan kanimo, hangyoa siya nga paanhion si Tamar dinhi aron sa pagpakaon kanimo. Ingna usab siya nga gusto mong dinhi mag-andam si Tamar sa pagkaon aron makita nimo, ug nga siya gayod ang mohungit kanimo.”

6Busa mihigda si Amnon ug nagpasakit-sakit. Sa dihang mibisita kaniya si Haring David, miingon siya, “Palihog paanhia ang akong igsoon nga si Tamar aron maghimo ug pan samtang nagatan-aw ako, ug unya hungitan niya ako.” 7Busa nagsugo si David nga pasultihan si Tamar didto sa palasyo nga moadto sa iyang igsoon nga si Amnon ug mag-andam ug pagkaon alang niini.

8Busa miadto si Tamar sa balay sa iyang igsoon nga si Amnon, ug naabtan niya kini nga naghigda. Mikuha siyag harina, gimasa kini, ug naghimog pan samtang nagtan-aw si Amnon. 9Pagkaluto, gikuha niya kini aron ipakaon kang Amnon, apan midumili pagkaon si Amnon. Miingon si Amnon, “Pagawasa ang tanang mga tawo dinhi!” Busa migawas ang mga tawo. 10Unya miingon si Amnon kang Tamar, “Dad-a dinhi sa akong kuwarto ang pagkaon ug hungiti ako.” Busa gidala ni Tamar ang pagkaon sa kuwarto ni Amnon. 11Apan sa dihang hungitan na niya si Amnon, gigakos siya niini ug giingnan nga magdulog sila.

12Miingon si Tamar kaniya, “Ayaw, managsoon kita! Ayaw ako pakaulawi; dili kini angay mahitabo sa Israel. Ayaw buhata kining kabuang kanako! 13Unsa na lay nawong nga akong ikapakita sa mga tawo? Ug ikaw, isipon ka nga usa ka buang-buang sa Israel. Sultihi lang ang atong amahan bahin niini; sigurado nga tugotan niya ikaw nga mangasawa kanako.”

14Apan wala mamati si Amnon kaniya. Ug tungod kay mas kusgan siya kang Tamar, gipakaulawan niya si Tamar pinaagi sa paglugos niini. 15Unya naglagot si Amnon kaniya, ug ang iyang kalagot milabaw kay sa iyang paghigugma niini. Miingon si Amnon kaniya, “Bangon ug lakaw!” 16Mitubag si Tamar, “Dili pwede! Mas dako pa nga sala ang pag-abog mo kanako kay sa imong gihimo kanako.” Apan wala gayod mamati kaniya si Amnon. 17Gitawag hinuon niya ang iyang sulugoon ug giingnan, “Pagawasa kining babayhana ug sirad-i dayon ang pultahan.”

18Busa gipagawas sa sulugoon si Tamar ug gisira ang pultahan. Nagsul-ob niadto si Tamar ug matahom ug taas nga bisti. (Mao kini ang ginasul-ob sa dalaga nga mga anak sa hari niadto nga panahon). 19Apan gigisi niya ang iyang matahom ug taas nga bisti, ug nagbutang ug abo sa iyang ulo. Unya milakaw siya nga nakatabon ang iyang mga kamot sa iyang nawong timaan sa iyang kaulaw.

20Nakita siya sa iyang igsoon nga si Absalom ug gipangutana, “May nahitabo ba tali kaninyo ni Amnon? Pagpakahilom lang bahin niini, kay igsoon mo siya sa amahan. Ayaw lang ikaguol kining nahitabo kanimo.” Didto na mipuyo si Tamar sa balay ni Absalom, apan kanunay lang siyang nagainusara ug nagmasulob-on.

21Sa dihang nahibaloan ni Haring David ang nahitabo, labihan gayod ang iyang kasuko. 22Ug bisan walay gisulti si Absalom kang Amnon mahitungod sa iyang gibuhat, gikapungtan niya siya tungod sa pagpakaulaw niini kang Tamar nga iyang igsoon.

Gipatay ni Absalom si Amnon

23Paglabay sa duha ka tuig, sa dihang gipaguntingan ni Absalom ang iyang mga karnero sa Baal Hazor, duol sa Efraim, giimbitar niya ang tanang anak sa hari sa pagtambong didto. 24Miadto siya kang Haring David ug miingon, “Nagapagunting ako sa akong mga karnero. Mahimo ba nga moadto ka uban ang imong mga opisyal sa pagsaulog niini nga okasyon uban kanako?” 25Mitubag ang hari, “Ayaw na lang anak, kay magastoan ka lang kon motambong kaming tanan.” Namugos gayod si Absalom kaniya, apan midumili gayod siya sa pag-adto. Gipanalanginan lang niya si Absalom. 26Miingon si Absalom, “Kon dili ka moadto, si Amnon na lang nga akong igsoon ang paadtoa.” Nangutana ang hari, “Nganong siya man ang gusto mong paadtoon?” 27Apan namugos gayod si Absalom, busa gipauban na lang ni David si Amnon, ug ang uban pa niyang mga anak nga lalaki.

28Miingon si Absalom sa iyang mga tawo, “Hulata ninyo nga mahubog si Amnon, unya inigsinyas ko, patya ninyo siya. Ayaw kamo kahadlok; ako ang nagsugo kaninyo. Pagpakalig-on kamo ug pagpakaisog.” 29Busa gipatay sa mga tawo ni Absalom si Amnon sumala sa iyang sugo. Pagkahibalo niini sa ubang mga anak ni David, midali-dali silag sakay sa ilang mga mula13:29 mula: sa English, mule. Tan-awa ang Lista sa mga Pulong sa luyo. ug nangikyas. 30Samtang diha pa sila sa dalan, may nakabalita kang David nga gipamatay ni Absalom ang tanan niyang mga anak nga lalaki ug wala gayoy nahibiling buhi kanila. 31Unya mitindog si David ug gigisi niya ang iyang bisti sa pagpakita sa iyang pagsubo, ug mihigda siya sa yuta. Gigisi usab sa iyang mga alagad nga nagatindog didto ang ilang mga bisti. 32Apan miingon si Jonadab nga anak sa igsoon ni David nga si Shimea, “Mahal nga Hari, ayaw pagtuo nga gipamatay ang tanan mong mga anak nga lalaki, si Amnon lang ang gipatay. Sukad sa adlaw nga gipakaulawan ni Amnon ang iyang igsoon nga si Tamar, nagtinguha na si Absalom sa pagpatay kaniya. 33Ayawg kabalak-i ang balita nga gipamatay ang tanan mong mga anak nga lalaki. Si Amnon lang ang gipatay. 34Ug bahin kang Absalom, milayas siya.”

Unya ang guwardya sa paril sa Jerusalem may nakitang daghang tawo nga nagpadulong. Gikan sila sa kasadpan, ug didto mag-agi sa kilid sa bungtod. Miadto ang guwardya sa hari ug miingon, “May nakita akong mga tawo sa dalan sa Horonaim, sa kilid sa bungtod.”13:34 Miadto… bungtod: Wala kini sa Hebreo, apan anaa sa Septuagint. 35Unya miingon si Jonadab sa hari, “Mahal nga Hari, tan-awa! Anaa na ang imong mga anak nga lalaki, sumala sa akong giingon.” 36Pagkahuman gayod niyag sulti, miabot ang mga anak nga lalaki ni David ug nanghilak sila. Mihilak usab ug kusog si David ug ang tanan niyang mga alagad. 37-38Nagsubo si David alang sa iyang anak nga si Amnon sulod sa taas nga panahon.

Sa dihang milayas si Absalom, miadto siya sa hari sa Geshur nga si Talmai, nga anak ni Amihud. Didto siya nagpuyo sulod sa tulo ka tuig. 39Sa dihang nahupay na si Haring David sa iyang kasubo sa pagkamatay ni Amnon, gimingaw siya kang Absalom.13:39 gimingaw siya kang Absalom: o, nawala na ang iyang gana sa pagdakop kang Absalom.
