"King Absalom" is killed in battle and as David is mourning for his son, he shows great kindness and mercy to several people. His forgiveness is quite extraordinary and reminds me of the phrase "to err is human; to forgive divine."  Again David gives us a very nice depiction of our True King, Jesus. God is a merciful God, and that's why Jesus was born of a virgin, walked the earth, was tempted as we are, and was crucified on a cross -- so that we might be partakers of God's mercy and go to heaven through the sacrifice of Jesus.
