Bible Commentary for 2 Samuel 2:25

Wesley's Notes for 2 Samuel 2:25


2:23 And died - So Asahel's swiftness, which he presumed on so much, only forwarded his fate! With it he ran upon his death, instead of running from it.

2:26 Bitterness - It will produce dreadful effects. Brethren - By nation and religion: whom therefore they should not pursue with so fierce a rage, as if they were pursuing the Philistines.

2:27 Unless, &c. - Unless thou hadst made the motion that they should fight, ver.#14|. It was thou, not I, that gave the first occasion of this fight. Abner was the sole cause of this war; otherwise all things had been ended by an amicable agreement: which might have been made that very morning, if he had so pleased.
