Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 2:41


2:39 Achish - A king, but subject and tributary, to Solomon.Permitted to enjoy the title and honour of a king, but not the full power;whence it was, that Achish could not keep these servants though they hadfled to him for protection; but suffered Shimei to take them away fromhis royal city.

2:40 To seek his servants - By seeking his servants, saysBp. Hall, he lost himself. These earthly things either are, or shouldbe our servants. How commonly do we see men run out of the bounds set byGod's laws, to hunt after them, till their souls incur a fearful judgment.
