"King David had many sons and daughters who were living in the lap of luxury and whose minds seem to have been corrupted. David’s family problems didn’t just impact him: because of their lineage, their problems held the people of Israel in captivity. The account of David’s son Absalom is tragic in many ways, and we can see how the actions and reactions of both David and Absalom played out poorly. In a dramatic plot of
vengeance, Absalom murders his despicable half-brother and runs away from Jerusalem and David, knowing and accepting his fate as banished from the kingdom of Israel. Sometime later, David forgives Absalom and has him return to Israel. This was too little, too late, for Absalom, he puts into action a subversive and treasonous plan against David. David is forced to escape from Jerusalem and readies his men for battle. David commands Joab and his soldiers to deal gently with his son Absalom, but the violence found deep in the heart of David’s family was coming to a deadly end.
