Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Samuel 12:11

_ _ I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house, etc. — The prophet speaks of God threatening to do what He only permitted to be done. The fact is, that David’s loss of character by the discovery of his crimes, tended, in the natural course of things, to diminish the respect of his family, to weaken the authority of his government, and to encourage the prevalence of many disorders throughout his kingdom.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Samuel 12:1-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Samuel 12:11

Own house — From thy own children and family. Thine eyes — Openly, so that thou shalt know it as certainly as if thou didst see it, and yet not be able to hinder it. And give them — I shall by my providence, give him power over them. Neighbor — To one who is very near thee. But God expresseth this darkly, that the accomplishment of it might not be hindered.
