Commentary for 2 Samuel 2:32

Wesley's Notes for 2 Samuel 2:32

2:32 In Bethlehem - The rest they buried in the field of battle, but Asahel in the sepulchre of his father. Thus are distinctions made upon earth, even between the dust of some and of others! But in the resurrection no difference will be made but between good and bad; which will remain for ever.
