re: 2 Sa 18:18. It is a generally recognized principle that people do not set up monuments to themselves after their death. Rather, they do it before their death and it is REPORTED (not narrated) after their death. The current coding suggests that Absalom was active after his death ... not what the Bible says on a close reading.

Since a firm chronology is not always easy to determine, I think it makes sense to list the results in canonical order, not chronological order. (Where would you put it in the list?)

I agree. My point is that the event was not narrated but reported.
