John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Samuel 1:26

Distressed — That is, for the loss of thee. For, besides the loss of a true friend, which is inestimable; he lost him who both could, and undoubtedly would have given him a speedy, and quiet, and sure possession of the kingdom, whereas now, he met with long and troublesome interruptions. Of women — That is, that love wherewith they love their husbands, or children for their affections are usually more ardent than mens.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Samuel 1:26

I am distressed for thee, my brother Jonathan: very pleasant hast thou been unto me: thy love to me was wonderful, passing the love of (m) women.

(m) Either toward their husbands or their children.
