2 Samuel 13:8

2 Samuel 13:8

So Tamar went to her brother Amnon's house
In obedience to the king's commands, and in affection to her brother, with an innocent breast, having no suspicion of any design upon her chastity:

(and he was laid down);
upon a couch or bed in his chamber, as being sick as was pretended, into which she was introduced:

and she took flour, and kneaded [it];
made it into a paste:

and made cakes in his sight;
a kind of fritters of them, as in the Talmud F25:

and did bake the cakes:
or fried them in a frying pan, in oil.


F25 T. Bab. Sanhedrin, fol. 21. 1.
