“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.”
King James Version (KJV)
1:6 Displeased him - This is noted as David's great error, and theoccasion of Adonijah's presumption. Saying - He neither restrainedhim from, nor reproved him for his miscarriages: which David well knewwas a great sin. Goodly man - This was a second ground of his confidence,because his great comeliness made him amiable in the peoples eyes.
