"Absalom was a handsome man and a good politician. He knew how to manipulate people and situations to make himself king. The reign of Absalom, however, was brief and a major flaw in the life of his father David. David, the rightful king of Israel, had to figure out how to deal with his fallen son. Hearing about the death of his son, David’s public and dramatic grief over Absalom caused what should have been a day of
victorious celebration for the people into one of shame and mourning. Confronted by Joab with the reality of what his words and action had done to the morale of the people, David got a grip, sat in the gate as king, and spoke comforting words to the people. If he hadn’t, David’s warriors would not have remained loyal to him.
