2 Samuel 14
Joab instructeth a woman of Tekoah, and sendeth her to the king. She entertaineth the king with a feigned tale, the intent of which is to obtain leave for Absalom's return. Joab is sent to fetch him, but he is not allowed to see the king. Absalom's beauty; his children. After two years he getteth admittance to the king by Joab's means.
