2 Samuel 13

Today’s daily motivational chapter tells the story of how King David’s son, Amnon, rapes his half-sister Tamar. Of course, she is disgraced. A couple of years pass. Absalam, one of Tamar’s brothers, seeks revenge against Amnon for raping his sister. Absalam gets Amnon drunk and commands his servants to murder him. At first, King David mistakenly thinks all of his sons have been murdered. When he discovers it is only Amnon who has been killed, he is relieved. He seeks to reconcile with his vengeful and murderous son, Absalam. Tamar is never again mentioned.
