Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on 2 Samuel 14:2-21.


2 Samuel 14:13-17

_ _ Wherefore then hast thou thought such a thing against the people of God, etc. — Her argument may be made clear in the following paraphrase: — You have granted me the pardon of a son who had slain his brother, and yet you will not grant to your subjects the restoration of Absalom, whose criminality is not greater than my son’s, since he killed his brother in similar circumstances of provocation. Absalom has reason to complain that he is treated by his own father more sternly and severely than the meanest subject in the realm; and the whole nation will have cause for saying that the king shows more attention to the petition of a humble woman than to the wishes and desires of a whole kingdom. The death of my son is a private loss to my family, while the preservation of Absalom is the common interest of all Israel, who now look to him as your successor on the throne.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Samuel 14:1-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Samuel 14:16

Hear — For I know the king is so wise and just, that I assure myself of audience and acceptation. Deliver — To grant my request concerning my son, and consequently the peoples petition concerning Absalom. My son — Implying that her life was bound up in the life of her son, and that she could not outlive his death; (and supposing that it might be David's case also, and would therefore touch him in a tender part, though it were not proper to say it expressly:) and thereby suggesting, that the safety and comfort of the people of Israel, depended upon Absalom's restitution. Inheritance — That is, out of that land which God gave to his people to be their inheritance, and in which alone God hath settled the place of his presence and worship: whereby she intimates the danger of Absalom's living in a state of separation from God, and his house, amongst idolaters.
