Samuel 13:11 - And when she had brought them unto him to eat, he took hold of her, and said unto her, Come lie with me, my sister.
Amnon fancies his half-sister Tamar. His friend Jonadab advises him to feign illness and to ask her for help. That way Amnon manages to get her into his room. He then asks her to lie with him. She refuses, upon which he drags her into his bed with force.
