Absalom is dead

Although David had ordered his men not to hurt Absalom and although Absalom was captured and David’s soldiers refused to harm him further., bloodthirsty Joab was not so reluctant. Joab thrust Absalom in the heart with three javelins. Immediately 10 of his attendants struck Absalom to make sure he died. 

Absalom had already erected a memorial (a pillar called Absalom’s Monument) to his own name in the King’s Valley (traditionally the Kidron Valley immediately east of Jerusalem) because he had no son to carry on his name. Joab buried him in a pit in the forest and piled over it a pile of stones which served as a memorial.
