    Countenance - Appearance.

    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Samuel 14:27

    Unto Absalom there were born - These children did not survive him; see 2 Samuel 18:18.

    Tamar - The Septuagint adds, And she became the wife of Roboam, the son of Solomon, and bare to him Abia; see Matthew 1:7. Josephus says the same. This addition is not found in the other versions.

    2 Samuel 14:27"Absalom had a daughter, whose name was Tamar."

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Samuel 14:27

    Three sons - These probably died in infancy (see the marginal reference). From Tamar must have been born Maachah, the mother of Abijah, and the favorite wife of Rehoboam 1 Kings 15:2; 2 Chronicles 11:20-22.

    Wesley's Notes on 2 Samuel 14:27

    14:27 Sons - All which died not long after they were born, as may be gathered from chap.18:18, where it is said, that Absalom had no son.
