John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Samuel 16:22

The top — Of the king's palace, the very place from whence David had gazed upon Bathsheba, 2 Samuel 11:2, so that his sin was legible in the very place of his punishment. Went in — To one, or some of them. And by so doing did farther make claim to the kingdom; and, as it were, take possession of it. It being usual in the eastern countries to account the wives and concubines of the late king, to belong of right to the successor. Israel — Who saw him go into the tent; and thence concluded, that he lay with them, as he had designed to do. God had threatened by Nathan, that for his defiling Bathsheba, David's own wives should be defiled in the face of the sun. This is now fulfilled: the Lord is righteous; and no word of his shall fall to the ground.
