2 Sam 14:33

14:33 the king kissed Absalom. The narrative ends abruptly. Though David’s action is sometimes referred to as the “kiss of reconciliation,” it is doubtful that a real reconciliation was effected. Ironically, by giving kisses to those who approached him with petitions, Absalom was soon to steal away the hearts of the people and launch a rebellion against his father (15:5, 6).
