(Hebrew: father of peace)

Beloved son of David, renowned for personal beauty (2 Kings 13-18). To avenge his sister's dishonor he killed his elder stepbrother, Amnon. Ambitious to attain the throne, he afterwards plotted against David; pursued by the royal forces, he was caught by his hair to the branches of a tree and there slain. David was inconsolable when he heard of his death.
