Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Samuel 11:8

_ _ David said to Uriah, Go down to thy house — This sudden recall, the manner of the king, his frivolous questions (2 Samuel 11:7), and his urgency for Uriah to sleep in his own house, probably awakened suspicions of the cause of this procedure.

_ _ there followed him a mess of meat from the king — A portion of meat from the royal table, sent to one’s own house or lodgings, is one of the greatest compliments which an Eastern prince can pay.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Samuel 11:6-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Samuel 11:8

Go down — Not doubting but he would there converse with his wife, and so cover their sin and shame.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

(e) David thought that if Uriah lay with his wife, his sin might be covered.
