2 And Dauid sent forth a third part of the people vnder the hand of Ioab, and a third part vnder the hand of Abishai the sonne of Zeruiah Ioabs brother, and a third part vnder the hand of Ittai the Gittite: and the king said vnto the people, I will surely goe foorth with you my selfe also.
3 But the people answered, Thou shalt not goe foorth: for if we flee away, they will not care for vs, neither if halfe of vs die will they care for vs: but now thou art worth ten thousand of vs: therfore now it is better that thou succour vs out of the citie.
5 And the king commanded Ioab, and Abishai, and Ittai, saying, Deale gently for my sake with the yong man, euen with Absalom. And all the people heard when the king gaue all the captaines charge concerning Absalom.
9 ∂ And Absalom met the seruants of Dauid; and Absalom rode vpon a mule, and the mule went vnder the thicke boughs of a great Oke, and his head caught hold of the Oke, and hee was taken vp betweene the heauen and the earth, and the mule that was vnder him, went away.
12 And the man saide vnto Ioab, Though I should receiue a thousand shekels of siluer in mine hand, yet would I not put foorth mine hand against the Kings sonne: for in our hearing the King charged thee, and Abishai, and Ittai, saying, Beware that none touch the yong man Absalom.
18 ∂ Now Absalom in his life time had taken and reared vp for himselfe a pillar, which is in the Kings dale: for hee said, I haue no sonne to keepe my name in remembrance: And hee called the pillar after his owne name, and it is called vnto this day, Absaloms place.
22 Then said Ahimaaz the sonne of Zadok yet againe to Ioab, But howsoeuer, let mee, I pray thee, also runne after Cushi. And Ioab said, Wherefore wilt thou runne, my sonne, seeing that thou hast no tidings ready?
28 And Ahimaaz called, and said vnto the King, All is well. And hee fell downe to the earth vpon his face before the King, and saide, Blessed bee the Lord thy God which hath deliuered vp the men that lift vp their hande against my lord the King.
33 ∂ And the king was much moued, and went vp to the chamber ouer the gate, and wept: and as he went, thus hee said, O my sonne Absalom, my sonne, my sonne Absalom: would God I had died for thee, O Absalom, my sonne, my sonne.

Godís word is true; because of Davidís sin, God allowed judgment on Davidís family. God forgave him for his sin, but David still had to reap what he sowed. So let that be a lesson to us! ďFor the wages of SIN is DEATHĒ!!!
Timothy Wayne George's 2 Samuel Chapter 18 comment about verse 33 on 12/21/2012, 9:49am...
We wept with all the parents at Sandy Hook, as David wept for his son Absalom, and only God can comfort those who have lost loved ones in such a time as this. We must look to heaven from which our help comes from, for God is the God of all comfort, and He comforts those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from Him. God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, so that who ever believes in Him would not perish, but would have everlasting life. Thank God that death is not the end, because Jesus is the first fruits of those from the grave. One day we will see our loved ones again, and we will rejoice to see that day come.

@ Woah awesome perspective on Absalom's death. I would of never thought he built the pillar to glorify himself but that makes a lot of since.
Yarie's 2 Samuel Chapter 18 comment about verse 18 on 7/31/2011, 4:13pm...
The real reason for building a pillar himself was because of prideful arrogant wickedness. He was in love with his beauty and wanted to immortalize himself through history. Which lead to his indignant death.
