SEV Biblia, Chapter 13:20 Y le dijo su hermano Absalón: Â¿Ha estado contigo tu hermano Amnón? Pues calla ahora, hermana mía; tu hermano es; no pongas tu corazón en este negocio. Y se quedó Tamar desconsolada en casa de Absalón su hermano.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 20. And Absalom her brother said unto her , etc.] Either meeting her in the street, or rather when come to his house: hath Amnon thy brother been with thee ? been rude with thee, and lain with thee, which is the meaning of this modest expression; which he guessed at, having heard of her being sent to his house, and knowing his lustful disposition, and seeing her in such a forlorn condition: he calls him Aminon, for so it is in the Hebrew text, and not Amnon, by way of contempt, as Kimchi observes: but hold now thy peace, my sister ; be silent, take no notice of this matter, say nothing of it to the king, nor any other, keep it in thine own breast, and make thyself easy: he [is] thy brother, regard not this thing ; it is thy brother that has done it, and not so disgraceful as a meaner person, done in the heat of lust, and a youthful one, and should be forgiven; besides, to divulge it would bring disgrace upon the whole family, and no recompence would be obtained by telling the king of it, since he was his son, his firstborn, and heir to the crown; this he said not out of love of Amnon, but as desirous of gratifying private revenge upon him for it when opportunity should serve. So Tamar remained desolate in her brother Absalom’s house ; not seeing any company, being filled with grief and shame, and none applying to her as a suitor, knowing she was vitiated; how long she continued here, or lived after this, is not certain; no mention is made of her afterwards.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-20 - From henceforward David was followed with one trouble after another Adultery and murder were David's sins, the like sins among his children were the beginnings of his punishment: he was too indulgent to his children. Thus David might trace the sins of his children to his ow misconduct, which must have made the anguish of the chastisement worse Let no one ever expect good treatment from those who are capable of attempting their seduction; but it is better to suffer the greates wrong than to commit the least sin.
