Diep geschokt, trok de koning zich terug in de bovenkamer van het poortgebouw;
wenend liep hij op en neer, terwijl hij bleef roepen: Absalom, mijn zoon!
Ach, was ik maar in jouw plaats gestorven!

English.png English translation

And the king was much moved, and went up to the chamber over the gate, and wept:
and as he went, thus he said, O my son Absalom!
Would God I had died for thee!

(KJV, 2 Samuel 18:33)
