I was David's first son who later raped my half-sister Tamar.
What is my name?
2 Samuel 13:10-14
10: And Amnon said unto Tamar, Bring the meat into the chamber, that I may eat of thine hand. And Tamar took the cakes which she had made, and brought them into the chamber to Amnon her brother.Answer: Amnon
11: And when she had brought them unto him to eat, he took hold of her, and said unto her, Come lie with me, my sister.
12: And she answered him, Nay, my brother, do not force me; for no such thing ought to be done in Israel: do not thou this folly.
13: And I, whither shall I cause my shame to go? and as for thee, thou shalt be as one of the fools in Israel. Now therefore, I pray thee, speak unto the king; for he will not withhold me from thee.
14: Howbeit he would not hearken unto her voice: but, being stronger than she, forced her, and lay with her.
