Talmai was Absalom's grandfather (2 Samuel 3:3), ruling Geshur, a small city-state in what is now Syria. Although David was angry with Amnon for raping Tamar (2 Samuel 13:21), he had apparently done nothing to punish him, and Absalom was afraid that he himself would be executed for taking the law into his own hands and slaying the king's firstborn son.
