Discussion for 2 Samuel 14:14

  • Peter aboi on 2 Samuel 14:14
    This is what I think of 2 Samuel 14:14. Its a book that warns us concerning the way we live our lives, that we are not the owners of our lives, as such we must live our lives to please God. Because when one dies the life is separated from the body and cannot be put back again.
