2 Samuel 14:27

And unto Absalom there were born three sons
Who very probably died young; and the rather it may be thought so, since their names are not given, and more especially since it is said that Absalom had no sons, and therefore erected a pillar to keep up the remembrance of his name; unless it can be thought that that was set up before he had any sons, which is not so likely; see (2 Samuel 18:18) ;

and one daughter, whose name [was] Tamar;
and whom he named after his sister Tamar, who was ravished by Amnon; the Septuagint version in some copies adds,

``and she became the wife of Rehoboam, the son of Solomon, and bore to him Abia;''

and so says Josephus F2; see (1 Kings 15:22) (2 Chronicles 11:20) ;

she was a woman of a fair countenance;
as was her aunt, after whom she was named, (2 Samuel 13:1) ; by this it appears that she lived to a woman's estate, though the sons of Absalom died young.
