II Samuel 3:2, 13:28-29 [3:2] And unto David were sons born in Hebron: and his firstborn was Amnon, of Ahinoam the Jezreelitess; [13:28] Now Absalom had commanded his servants, saying, Mark ye now when Amnon's heart is merry with wine, and when I say unto you, Smite Amnon; then kill him, fear not: have not I commanded you? be courageous, and be valiant. [13:29] And the servants of Absalom did unto Amnon as Absalom had commanded. Then all the king's sons arose, and every man gat him up upon his mule, and fled. (Amnon was the second son that David lost)
II Samuel 3:2-5 [3:2] And unto David were sons born in Hebron : and his firstborn was Amnon, of Ahinoam the Jezreelitess; [3:3] And his second, Chileab, of Abigail the wife of Nabal the Carmelite; and the third, Absalom the son of Maacah the daughter of Talmai king of Geshur; [3:4] And the fourth, Adonijah the son of Haggith; and the fifth, Shephatiah the son of Abital; [3:5] And the sixth, Ithream, by Eglah David's wife. These were born to David in Hebron. ( Chileab was called Daniel in I Chronicles 3:1-3 below)
II Samuel 5:14-16 [5:14] And these be the names of those that were born unto him in Jerusalem ; Shammuah, and Shobab, and Nathan, and Solomon, [5:15] Ibhar also, and Elishua, and Nepheg, and Japhia, [5:16] And Elishama, and Eliada, and Eliphalet.
II Samuel 11:3, 5, 27, 12:18 [11:3] And David sent and enquired after the woman. And one said, Is not this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite? [11:5] And the woman conceived, and sent and told David, and said, I am with child. [11:27] And when the mourning was past, David sent and fetched her to his house, and she became his wife, and bare him a son. But the thing that David had done displeased the LORD. [12:18] And it came to pass on the seventh day, that the child died. And the servants of David feared to tell him that the child was dead: for they said, Behold, while the child was yet alive, we spake unto him, and he would not hearken unto our voice: how will he then vex himself, if we tell him that the child is dead? (Son of Bathsheba, died at 7 days old & the first son to die)
II Samuel 13:4 And it came to pass after this, that Absalom the son of David had a fair sister, whose name was Tamar; and Amnon the son of David loved her. (See I Chronicles 3:9 below, Tamar, the only daughter of David that is named in the Bible. Apparently, she was the daughter of David's wife Maacah in II Samuel 3:3 above. Absalom's father was David, Absalom's mother was Maacah, and Absalom's sister was Tamar. Probably, Tamar was the daughter of Maacah. It is not assumed that Tamar was Absalom's step-sister.)
II Samuel 16:22 So they spread Absalom a tent upon the top of the house; and Absalom went in unto his father's concubines in the sight of all Israel. (Absolam fulfilled his father's word)
II Samuel 18:14 Then said Joab, I may not tarry thus with thee. And he took three darts in his hand, and thrust them through the heart of Absalom, while he was yet alive in the midst of the oak. (Job killed Absolam, who was the third son that David lost)
I Kings 1:5-6 [1:5] Then Adonijah the son of Haggith exalted himself, saying, I will be king: and he prepared him chariots and horsemen, and fifty men to run before him. [1:6] And his father had not displeased him at any time in saying, Why hast thou done so? and he also was a very goodly man; and his mother bare him after Absalom. (Absalom's mother was Maachah [II Samuel 3:3 above] the daughter of Talmai king of Geshur.)
I Kings 2:24-25 [2:24] Now therefore, as the LORD liveth, which hath established me, and set me on the throne of David my father, and who hath made me an house, as he promised, Adonijah shall be put to death this day. [2:25] And king Solomon sent by the hand of Benaiah the son of Jehoiada; and he fell upon him that he died. (This was the 4th son that David lost, although this was probably after David's death)
I Chronicles 3:1-3 [3:1] Now these were the sons of David, which were born unto him in Hebron; the firstborn Amnon, of Ahinoam the Jezreelitess; the second Daniel, of Abigail the Carmelitess: [3:2] The third, Absalom the son of Maachah the daughter of Talmai king of Geshur: the fourth, Adonijah the son of Haggith: [3:3] The fifth, Shephatiah of Abital: the sixth, Ithream by Eglah his wife. ( Daniel was called Chileab in II Samuel 3:3)
I Chronicles 3:5-9 [3:5] And these were born unto him in Jerusalem; Shimea, and Shobab, and Nathan, and Solomon, four, of Bathshua the daughter of Ammiel: [3:6] Ibhar also, and Elishama, and Eliphelet, [3:7] And Nogah, and Nepheg, and Japhia, [3:8] And Elishama, and Eliada, and Eliphelet, nine. [3:9] These were all the sons of David, beside the sons of the concubines, and Tamar their sister.

I Chronicles 14:4 Now these are the names of his children which he had in Jerusalem; Shammua, and Shobab, Nathan, and Solomon , [(1) Shammua (also called Shimea in I Chronicles 3:5 above) , (2) Shobab, (3) Nathan, (4) Solomon, all children of Bathsheba]
