Bible Commentary for 2 Samuel 16:12

Wesley's Notes for 2 Samuel 16:12


16:10 What have I, &e. - In this matter I ask not your advice, nor will I follow it; nor do I desire you should at all concern yourselves in it. The Lord - God did not put any wickedness into Shimei's heart, for he had of himself an heart full of malignity against David; but only left him to his own wickedness; and brought David into so distressed a condition, that he might seem a proper object of his scorn. And this is ground enough for this expression, the Lord said, not by the word of his precept, but by the word of his providence, in respect whereof he is said to command the ravens, #1Kings 17:4|, and to send forth his word to senseless creatures, #Psal 147:15|,18. Who shall reproach God's providence for permitting this? Or, who shall restrain him from executing his just judgment against me?

16:11 My life - Which is a greater mischief, than to reproach me with words. Benjamites - Of that tribe and family from which God hast taken away the kingdom, and given it to me. Let him - Do not now hinder him violently from it, nor punish him for it. It is meet I should bear the indignation of the Lord, and submit to his pleasure.

16:14 Came - To the city of Bahurim.
