But Absalom fled and went to Talmai the son of Ammihur, king of Geshur. David mourned for his son every day. Bible

“and went to Talmai…king of Geshur.” Absalom fled out of Israel to his maternal grandfather, who had a marriage alliance with David and who protected him. The marriage of David and Talmai’s daughter is in 2 Samuel 3:3, but see commentary on 2 Samuel 3:2.
