20 H53 And Absalom H251 her brother H559 [H8799] said H550 to her, Hath Amnon H251 thy brother H2790 [H8685] been with thee? but hold now thy peace, H269 my sister: H251 he is thy brother; H7896 H3820 [H8799] regard H1697 not this thing. H8559 So Tamar H3427 [H8799] remained H8074 [H8802] desolate H251 in her brother H53 Absalom's H1004 house.
21 H4428 But when king H1732 David H8085 [H8804] heard H1697 of all these things, H3966 he was very H2734 [H8799] angry.
22 H53 And Absalom H1696 [H8765] spoke H550 to his brother Amnon H2896 neither good H7451 nor bad: H53 for Absalom H8130 [H8804] hated H550 Amnon, H1697 because H6031 [H8765] he had forced H269 his sister H8559 Tamar.
23 H3117 And it came to pass after two full H8141 years, H53 that Absalom H1494 [H8802] had sheepshearers H1178 in Baalhazor, H669 which is beside Ephraim: H53 and Absalom H7121 [H8799] invited H4428 all the king's H1121 sons.
24 H53 And Absalom H935 [H8799] came H4428 to the king, H559 [H8799] and said, H5650 Behold now, thy servant H1494 [H8802] hath sheepshearers; H3212 0 let H4428 the king, H5650 I beseech thee, and his servants H3212 [H8799] go H5650 with thy servant.
25 H4428 And the king H559 [H8799] said H53 to Absalom, H1121 Nay, my son, H3212 [H8799] let us not all now go, H3513 [H8799] lest we be burdensome H6555 [H8799] to thee. And he pressed H14 [H8804] him: yet he would H3212 [H8800] not go, H1288 [H8762] but blessed him.
26 H559 [H8799] Then said H53 Absalom, H251 If not, I pray thee, let my brother H550 Amnon H3212 [H8799] go H4428 with us. And the king H559 [H8799] said H3212 [H8799] to him, Why should he go with thee?
27 H53 But Absalom H6555 [H8799] pressed H550 him, that he should let Amnon H4428 and all the king's H1121 sons H7971 [H8799] go with him.
28 H53 Now Absalom H6680 [H8762] had commanded H5288 his servants, H559 [H8800] saying, H7200 [H8798] Mark H550 ye now when Amnon's H3820 heart H2896 is merry H3196 with wine, H559 [H8804] and when I say H5221 [H8685] to you, Smite H550 Amnon; H4191 [H8689] then kill H3372 [H8799] him, fear H6680 [H8765] not: have I not commanded H2388 [H8798] you? be courageous, H1121 H2428 and be valiant.
