Rex autem David operto capite,
incedens, lugebat filium suum:
Absalon fili mi quis mihi det ut ego moriar pro te,
Absolon fili mi, Absalon fili mi?

Planxit autem David super Ionatham, dicens:
doleo super te frater mi Ionatha,
frater mi amabilis valde super amorem mulierum,
sicut mater unicum amat filium suum,
ita ego te diligebam, inclyti Israel flete.
