With David being king, the enemy continued to fight against him and the kingdom of Israel. Even the Philistines came back again to wage war against David, in order to take the kingdom for themselves once and for all.
We will now look at how Absalsom’s life ended, which was very sad. It is recorded that Joab said, “I may not tarry thus with thee. And he took three darts in his hand, and thrust them through the heart of Absalom, while he was yet alive in the midst of the oak.
It was in this time that “Ahithophel said unto Absalom, Go in unto thy father’s concubines, which he hath left to keep the house; and all Israel shall hear that thou art abhorred of thy father: then shall the hands of all that are with thee be strong.
The time that Absalom was in Jerusalem, he and his wife were blessed to have children. It is recorded that “unto Absalom there were born three sons, and one daughter, whose name was Tamar: she was a woman of a fair countenance.” (2 Samuel 14:27)
