2 Samuel 14:1; 2 Samuel 14:33 (New International Version)
Joab son of Zeruiah knew that the king's heart longed for Absalom.
So Joab went to the king and told him this. Then the king summoned Absalom, and he came in and bowed down with his face to the ground before the king. And the king kissed Absalom.
