2 Samuel 13:17-27

NRS 17 He called the young man who served him and said, "Put this woman out of my presence, and bolt the door after her." NIV 17 He called his personal servant and said, "Get this woman out of here and bolt the door after her." NRS 18 (Now she was wearing a long robe with sleeves; for this is how the virgin daughters of the king were clothed in earlier times. ) So his servant put her out, and bolted the door after her. NIV 18 So his servant put her out and bolted the door after her. She was wearing a richly ornamented robe, for this was the kind of garment the virgin daughters of the king wore. NRS 19 But Tamar put ashes on her head, and tore the long robe that she was wearing; she put her hand on her head, and went away, crying aloud as she went. NIV 19 Tamar put ashes on her head and tore the ornamented robe she was wearing. She put her hand on her head and went away, weeping aloud as she went. NRS 20 Her brother Absalom said to her, "Has Amnon your brother been with you? Be quiet for now, my sister; he is your brother; do not take this to heart." So Tamar remained, a desolate woman, in her brother Absalom's house. NIV 20 Her brother Absalom said to her, "Has that Amnon, your brother, been with you? Be quiet now, my sister; he is your brother. Don't take this thing to heart." And Tamar lived in her brother Absalom's house, a desolate woman. NRS 21 When King David heard of all these things, he became very angry, but he would not punish his son Amnon, because he loved him, for he was his firstborn. NIV 21 When King David heard all this, he was furious. NRS 22 But Absalom spoke to Amnon neither good nor bad; for Absalom hated Amnon, because he had raped his sister Tamar. NIV 22 Absalom never said a word to Amnon, either good or bad; he hated Amnon because he had disgraced his sister Tamar. NRS 23 After two full years Absalom had sheepshearers at Baal-hazor, which is near Ephraim, and Absalom invited all the king's sons. NIV 23 Two years later, when Absalom's sheepshearers were at Baal Hazor near the border of Ephraim, he invited all the king's sons to come there. NRS 24 Absalom came to the king, and said, "Your servant has sheepshearers; will the king and his servants please go with your servant?" NIV 24 Absalom went to the king and said, "Your servant has had shearers come. Will the king and his officials please join me?" NRS 25 But the king said to Absalom, "No, my son, let us not all go, or else we will be burdensome to you." He pressed him, but he would not go but gave him his blessing. NIV 25 "No, my son," the king replied. "All of us should not go; we would only be a burden to you." Although Absalom urged him, he still refused to go, but gave him his blessing. NRS 26 Then Absalom said, "If not, please let my brother Amnon go with us." The king said to him, "Why should he go with you?" NIV 26 Then Absalom said, "If not, please let my brother Amnon come with us." The king asked him, "Why should he go with you?" NRS 27 But Absalom pressed him until he let Amnon and all the king's sons go with him. Absalom made a feast like a king's feast. NIV 27 But Absalom urged him, so he sent with him Amnon and the rest of the king's sons.
