Bible Commentary for 2 Samuel 14:23

Wesley's Notes for 2 Samuel 14:23


14:22 Fulfilled - But it seems David had no power to dispense with God's laws, nor to spare any whom God appointed him to destroy: for the laws of God bound the kings and rulers, as well as the people of Israel. How justly did God make this man, whom he had so sinfully spared, a scourge to him?

14:24 Let him turn - Lest whilst be shewed some mercy to Absalom, he should seem to approve of his sin. Likewise by this means Absalom might be drawn to a more thorough humiliation and repentance.

14:25 Beauty - This is noted as the occasion of his pride, and of the people's affection to him.
