„When the attendants did to Amnon as Absalom had commanded, all the king’s other sons rose up, mounted their mules, and fled. 30While they were still on the road, a report reached David: Absalom has killed all the king’s sons and not one of them is left. 31The king stood up, tore his garments, and lay on the ground. All his servants standing by him also tore their garments. 32But Jonadab, son of David’s brother Shimeah, spoke up: Let not my lord think that all the young men, the king’s sons, have been killed! Amnon alone is dead, for Absalom was set on this ever since Amnon humiliated his sister Tamar. 33Now let my lord the king not take so to heart that report, All the king’s sons are dead. Amnon alone is dead. 34Meanwhile, Absalom had taken flight. Then the servant on watch looked out and saw a large group coming down the slope from the direction of Bahurim. He came in and reported this to the king: I saw some men coming down the mountainside from the direction of Bahurim”.
