More drama in the house of David.

Welcome to’s chapter summary series, if you need a quick summary of a chapter in the Bible, join us for the journey in our chapter summary series and learn a lot in the process. Now back to 2nd Samuel chapter 15 summary.

It started with Absalom putting together a small team, and then he strategically positioned his operation near the gate of the entryway to the king’s court.

This way, whomever was coming to the king for a judgment or another matter, Absalom would intercept them and handled the matter in a kind and loving way. He knew excellent custom service back then.

Absalom did this to all Israel that came to see the king, and slowly but surely he stole their hearts. He became the face of the country in this process over his father David, a handsome face too. While David was not an ugly man, Absalom faired exceeding well in the eyes of people. He would have been a very attractive man in the eyes of the world today!

Eventually, towards the end of David’s reign, Absalom asked David if he could go to Hebron and pay a vow he made while he was banished in Geshur of Syria. The king permitted him, but Absalom had spies blow a trumpet throughout Israel shouting, “Absalom rules in Hebron!”

Coup D’Etat by Absalom

The nation was strongly behind Absalom, until finally David’s people realized what was going on and David decided to flee his son instead of war with him. The king left ten concubines of his to keep his palace as he fled.

The chapter ends with David dwelling in the wilderness and working with a man named Hushai, who David sent back and forth to Jerusalem to work as a spy in Absalom’s cabinet.

Drama, yes it is!

David has been going through a lot of family troubles since his transgression with Uriah the Hittite’s wife, Bathsheba. Therefore David took the humble route and is drinking his bitter coffee he poured for himself. This is chapter 15 summary of 2nd Samuel.
