    1 Joab, suborning a widow of Tekoah by a parable to incline the king's heart to fetch home Absalom, brings him to Jerusalem. 25 Absalom's beauty, hair, and children. 28 After two years, Absalom is brought into the king's presence by Joab. VERSE 1 - A.M. 2977. B. C. 1027. An. Ex. Is. 464. Joab. * 2Sa 2:18 1Ch 2:16 - toward Absalom. * 2Sa 13:39; 18:33; 19:2,4 Pr 29:26 VERSE 2 - to Tekoah. Tekoah was a city of Judah, situated, according to Eusebius and Jerome, twelve miles south of Jerusalem. Josephus says it was not far from the castle of Herodium; and Jerome (Prologue to Amos) says it stood on a hill six miles south from Bethlehem. Dr. Poccocke places it at the same distance; and says there are still considerable ruins on the top of a hill, which is about half a mile long and a furlong broad. * 2Ch 11:6; 20:20 Ne 3:5,27 Jer 6:1 Am 1:1 - Tekoa. mourning. * 2Sa 11:26 Ru 3:3 Ps 104:15 Ec 9:8 Mt 6:17 VERSE 3 - put the words. * :19 Ex 4:15 Nu 23:5 De 18:18 Isa 51:16; 59:21 Jer 1:9 VERSE 4 - fell on her. * 2Sa 1:2 1Sa 20:41; 25:23 - Help. Heb. Save. * 2Ki 6:26-28 Job 29:12-14 Lu 18:3-5 VERSE 5 - I am indeed. It is very possible that the principal incidents mentioned here were real; and that Joab found out a person whose circumstances bore a near resemblance to that which he wished to represent. She did not make the similitude too plain and visible, lest the king should see her intention before she had obtained a grant of pardon; and thus her circumstances, her mournful tale, her widow's dress, her aged person, (for Josephus says she was advanced in years,) and her impressive manner, all combined to make one united irresistible impression on the heart of the aged monarch. * 2Sa 12:1-3 Jud 9:8-15 VERSE 6 - and they two. * Ge 4:8 Ex 2:13 De 22:26,27 - none to part. Heb. no deliverer between. VERSE 7 - the whole. * Ge 4:14 Nu 35:19 De 19:12 - so they. * Ge 27:45 De 25:6 - quench. * 2Sa 12:17 - upon the earth. Heb. upon the face of the earth. VERSE 8 - I will give. * 2Sa 12:5,6; 16:4 Job 29:16 Pr 18:13 Isa 11:3,4 VERSE 9 - the iniquity. * Ge 27:13 1Sa 25:24 Mt 27:25 - and the king. * 2Sa 3:28,29 Nu 35:33 De 21:1-9 1Ki 2:33 VERSE 10 VERSE 11 - let the king. * Ge 14:22; 24:2,3; 31:50 1Sa 20:42 - thou, etc. Heb. the revenger of blood do not multiply to destroy. the revengers. * Nu 35:19,27 De 19:4-10 Jos 20:3-6 - As the Lord. * 1Sa 14:45; 28:10 Jer 4:2 - not one hair. * 1Ki 1:52 Mt 10:30 Ac 27:34 VERSE 12 - Let thine. * 1Sa 25:24 - speak one word. * Ge 18:27,32; 44:18 Jer 12:1 - Say on. * Ac 26:1 VERSE 13 - Wherefore. * 2Sa 12:7 1Ki 20:40-42 Lu 7:42-44 - people. * 2Sa 7:8 Jud 20:2 - in that the king. * 2Sa 13:37,38 VERSE 14 - we must. * 2Sa 11:25 Job 30:23; 34:15 Ps 90:3,10 Ec 3:19,20; 9:5 Heb 9:27 - as water. * Job 14:7-12,14 Ps 22:14; 79:3 - neither, etc. or, because God hath not taken away his life, he hath also devised means, etc. God. * De 10:17 Job 34:19 Mt 22:16 Ac 10:34 Ro 2:11 1Pe 1:17 - he devise. * Ex 21:13 Le 26:40 Nu 35:15,25,28 Isa 50:1,2 VERSE 15 * :15 VERSE 16 VERSE 17 - comfortable. Heb. for rest. as an angel. This is very much like the hyperbolical language which is addressed by the Hindoos to an European when they desire to obtain something from him: "Saheb," say they, "can do every thing. No one can prevent the execution of Saheb's commands. Saheb is God." Though the expression may be imputed to the hyperbolical genius of these countries, yet there was, perhaps, more of real persuasion than we are apt to suppose. Sir John Chardin states, that having found fault with the king of Persia's valuation of a rich trinket, the grand master told him that if a Persian had dared to have done such a thing, it would have been as much as his life was worth. "Know," said he, "that the kings of Persia have a general and full knowledge of matters, as sure as it is extensive; and that, equally in the greatest and smallest things, there is nothing more just and sure than what they pronounce." * :20; 19:27 1Sa 29:9 Pr 27:21; 29:5 - to discern. Heb. to hear. * 1Ki 3:9,28 Job 6:30 1Co 2:14,15 *marg: * Heb 5:14 VERSE 18 - Hide not. * 1Sa 3:17,18 Jer 38:14,25 VERSE 19 - of Joab. * 2Sa 3:27,29,34; 11:14,15 1Ki 2:5,6 - As thy soul. * 2Sa 11:11 1Sa 1:26; 17:55; 20:3; 25:26 2Ki 2:2 - turn. * Nu 20:17 De 5:32; 28:14 Jos 1:7 Pr 4:27 - he put. See on ver. * :3 Ex 4:15 Lu 21:15 VERSE 20 - fetch. * 2Sa 5:23 - according. * :17; 19:27 Job 32:21,22 Pr 26:28; 29:5 - to know. * Ge 3:5 Job 38:16-41 1Co 8:1,2 VERSE 21 - I have done. * :11 1Sa 14:39 Mr 6:26 VERSE 22 - thanked. Heb. blessed. * 2Sa 19:39 Ne 11:2 Job 29:11; 31:20 Pr 31:28 - I have found. * Ge 6:8 Ex 33:16,17 Ru 2:2 1Sa 20:3 - his. or, thy. VERSE 23 - Geshur. * 2Sa 3:3; 13:37 VERSE 24 - let him not. * :28; 3:13 Ge 43:3 Ex 10:28 Re 22:4 VERSE 25 - But in all Israel, etc. Heb. And as Absalom there was not a beautiful man in all Israel to praise greatly. * 1Sa 9:2; 16:7 Pr 31:30 Mt 23:27 - from the sole. * De 28:35 Job 2:7 Isa 1:6 Eph 5:27 VERSE 26 - when he polled. * 2Sa 18:9 Isa 3:24 1Co 11:14 - two hundred shekels. If the shekel be allowed to mean the common shekel, the amount will be utterly incredible; for Josephus says that "two hundred shekels make five {minae:}" and the {mina,} he says, "weighs two pounds and a half;" which calculation makes Absalom's hair weigh twelve pounds and a half! But it is probable that the king's shekel was that which Epiphanius and Hesychius say was the fourth part of an ounce, half a {stater,} or two drachms: the whole amount, therefore, of the 200 shekels is about 50 ounces, which make 4 lb. 2 oz. troy weight, or 3 lb. 2 oz. avoirdupois. This need not be accounted incredible, especially as abundance of oil and ointment was used by the ancients in dressing their heads. Josephus informs us, that the Jews also put gold dust in their hair. * Ge 23:16 Le 19:36 Eze 45:9-14 VERSE 27 - born. * 2Sa 18:18 Job 18:16-19 Isa 14:22 Jer 22:30 - Tamar. * 2Sa 13:1 VERSE 28 - A.M. 2977-2979.
