And unto Absalom there were born three sons, and one daughter, whose name was Tamar: she was a woman of a fair countenance.
Now Absalom in his lifetime had taken and reared up for himself a pillar, which is in the king's dale: for he said, I have no son to keep my name in remembrance: and he called the pillar after his own name: and it is called unto this day, Absalom's place.
Three years reigned he in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Maachah, the daughter of Abishalom.
And after her he took Maachah the daughter of Absalom; which bare him Abijah, and Attai, and Ziza, and Shelomith.
