|Overview - 2 Samuel 13|
|1||Amnon loving Tamar, by Jonadab's counsel feigning himself sick, ravishes her.|

|23||At a sheep-shearing among all the king's sons, he kills Amnon.|
|31||David grieving at the news, is comforted by Jonadab.|
|37||Absalom flies to Talmai at Geshur.|
2 Samuel 13:21 (King James Version)
But when king David heard of all these things, he was very wroth.
- he was very wroth
- The Septuagint and Vulgate add, [Kai ouk elupese to pneuma Amnon tou huiou autou, hoti egapa auton, hoti prototokos autou en;] et noluit contristare spiritum Amnon filii sui, quoniam diligebat eum, quia primogenitus erat ei: "But he would not grieve the soul of Amnon his son, for he loved him because he was his first-born." The same addition is found in Josephus; and it is probable that it once formed a part of the Hebrew text.
