Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 1:1


1:1 Old - Being in the end of his seventieth year. No heat - Whichis not strange in a person who had been exercised with so many hardships inwar, and with such tormenting cares, and fears, and sorrows, for his own sins(as divers of his Psalms witness) and for the sins and miseries of hischildren and people. Besides, this might be from the nature of his bodilydistemper.
