Bible Commentary for 2 Samuel 12:6

Wesley's Notes for 2 Samuel 12:6


12:5 Is worthy to die - This seems to be more than the fact deserved, or than he had commission to inflict for it, #Exod 22:1|. But it is observable, that David now when he was most indulgent to himself, and to his own sin, was most severe and even unjust to others; as appears by this passage, and the following relation, ver.#31|, which was done in the time of David's impenitent continuance in his sin.

12:7 Thus saith the Lord God - Nathan now speaks, not as a petitioner for a poor man, but as an ambassador from the great God.
