amnon and thamar

and it came to pass after this, that amnon the son of david loved the sister of absalom the son of david, who was very beautiful, and her name was thamar. and he was exceedingly fond of her, so that he fell sick for the love of her: for as she was a virgin, he thought it hard to do any thing dishonestly with her. [ii kings 13:1-2 ] and thamar came to the house of amnon her brother: but he was laid down: and she took meal and tempered it: and dissolving it in his sight she made little messes. and taking what she had boiled, she poured it out, and set it before him, but he would not eat: and amnon said: put out all persons from me. and when they had put all persons out, amnon said to thamar: bring the mess into the chamber, that i may eat at thy hand. and when she had presented him the meat, he took hold of her, and said: come lie with me, my sister. she answered him: do not so, my brother, do not force me: for no such thing must be done in israel. do not thou this folly. [ii kings 13:8-12] but he would not hearken to her prayers, but being stronger overpowered her and lay with her. [ii kings 13:14]
