I got the reference wrong for this chapter on Twitter - I had it as 1 Samuel instead of 2 Samuel. I thought something was amiss with the reference before I posted but I only double-checked the chapter number. D'oh!

And on a day when CCN featured a screenshot of Bible Summary on their front page as well!

I think I've made pretty much every possible kind of error now except missing a chapter.


Absalom loved his sister Tamar so much that he named his daughter Tamar V 27 Three sons and a daughter were born to Absalom. His daughter’s name was Tamar, and she became a beautiful woman
