2 Samuel 13:15-22New American Standard Bible (NASB)
15 Then Amnon hated her with a very great hatred; for the hatred with which he hated her was greater than the love with which he had loved her. And Amnon said to her, “Get up, go away!”16 But she said to him, “No, because this wrong in sending me away is greater than the other that you have done to me!” Yet he would not listen to her.17 Then he called his young man who attended him and said, “Now throw this woman out of my presence, and lock the door behind her.”18 Now she had on a [a]long-sleeved garment; for in this manner the virgin daughters of the king dressed themselves in robes. Then his attendant took her out and locked the door behind her.19 Tamar put [b]ashes on her head and tore her [c]long-sleeved garment which was on her; and she put her hand on her head and went away, crying aloud as she went.
20 Then Absalom her brother said to her, “Has Amnon your brother been with you? But now keep silent, my sister, he is your brother; do not take this matter to heart.” So Tamar remained and was desolate in her brother Absalom’s house.21 Now when King David heard of all these matters, he was very angry.22 But Absalom did not speak to Amnon either good or bad; for Absalom hated Amnon because he had violated his sister Tamar.
