But Ab'salom fled. And the young man who kept the watch lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold, many people were coming from the Horona'im road by the side of the mountain.
And Jon'adab said to the king, "Behold, the king's sons have come; as your servant said, so it has come about."
And as soon as he had finished speaking, behold, the king's sons came, and lifted up their voice and wept; and the king also and all his servants wept very bitterly.
But Ab'salom fled, and went to Talmai the son of Ammi'hud, king of Geshur. And David mourned for his son day after day.
So Ab'salom fled, and went to Geshur, and was there three years.
And the spirit of the king longed to go forth to Ab'salom; for he was comforted about Amnon, seeing he was dead.
