Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Samuel 15:11

_ _ with Absalom went two hundred men ... that were called — From their quality, reputation, and high standing, such as would create the impression that the king patronized the movement and, being aged and infirm, was willing to adopt his oldest and noblest son to divide with him the cares and honors of government.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Samuel 15:7-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Samuel 15:11

Called — Such as Absalom had picked out as fit for his purpose; such as were of some reputation with the king and people, which would give a countenance to his undertaking, and give occasion to people at first to think that this was done by his father's consent, as being now aged, and infirm, and willing to resign the kingdom to him. It is no new thing, for good men to be made use of by designing men to put a colour upon ill practices.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Samuel 15:11

And with Absalom went two hundred men out of Jerusalem, [that were] (g) called; and they went in their simplicity, and they knew not any thing.

(g) And bid to his feast in Hebron.
