2 Samuel 13:15-25 NIV

15 Then Amnon hated her with intense hatred. In fact, he hated her more than he had loved her. Amnon said to her, "Get up and get out!"
16 "No!" she said to him. "Sending me away would be a greater wrong than what you have already done to me." But he refused to listen to her.
17 He called his personal servant and said, "Get this woman out of here and bolt the door after her."
18 So his servant put her out and bolted the door after her. She was wearing a richly ornamenteda robe,1 for this was the kind of garment the virgin daughters of the king wore.
