    1 Ziba, by presents and false suggestions, obtains his master's inheritance. 5 At Bahurim Shimei curse David. 9 David with patience abstains, and restrains others, from revenge. 15 Hushai insinuates himself into Absalom's counsel. 20 Ahithophel's counsel.

These were probably pumpkins, cucumbers, or water-melons; the two latter being extensively used in the East to refresh travellers in the burning heat of the summer; and probably, as Mr. Harmer supposes, called summer fruits on this very account. * Jer 40:10,12 Am 8:1 Mic 7:1 - a bottle. * 1Sa 10:3; 16:20 VERSE 2 - What meanest. * Ge 21:29; 33:8 Eze 37:18 The asses. This is the eastern mode of speaking when presenting any thing to a great man: "This is for the slaves of the servants of your majesty;" when at the same time the presents are intended for the sovereign himself, and it is so understood. * 2Sa 15:1; 19:26 Jud 5:10; 10:4 - for the young. * 1Sa 25:27 - that such. * 2Sa 15:23; 17:29 Jud 8:4,5 1Sa 14:28 Pr 31:6,7 VERSE 3 - where is. * 2Sa 9:9,10 Ps 88:18 Mic 7:5 - Today. * 2Sa 19:24-30 Ex 20:16 De 19:18,19 Ps 15:3; 101:5 Pr 1:19; 21:28 * 1Ti 6:9,10 Jude 1:11 VERSE 4 - Behold. * 2Sa 14:10,11 Ex 23:8 De 19:15 Pr 18:13,17; 19:2 - I humbly beseech thee. Heb. I do obeisance. * 2Sa 14:4,22 VERSE 5 - Bahurim. This place is supposed to be the same as Almon, (Jos 21:18,) and Almeth, (1 Ch 60 6:60,) a city of Benjamin, north of Jerusalem, and apparently not far from Olivet. * :14; 3:16; 17:18 - whose name. * 2Sa 19:16-18 1Ki 2:8,9,36-44,45,46 - he came, etc. or, he still came forth and cursed. cursed. * Ex 22:28 1Sa 17:43 Ps 69:26; 109:16-19,28 Pr 26:2 Ec 10:20 * Isa 8:21 Mt 5:11,12 VERSE 6 VERSE 7 - bloody man.

Heb. dusted him with dust. * Ac 23:23 It was an ancient custom, in those warm and arid countries, to lay the dust before a person of distinction, by sprinkling the ground with water. Dr. Pococke and the consul were treated with this respect when they entered Cairo. The same custom is alluded to in the well-known fable of Phaedrus, in which a slave is represented going before Augustus and officiously laying the dust. To throw dust in the air while a person was passing was therefore an act of great disrespect; to do so before a sovereign prince, an indecent outrage. But it is probable that Shimei meant more than disrespect and outrage to this afflicted king. Sir John Chardin informs us, that in the East, in general, those who demand justice against a criminal throw dust upon him, signifying that he ought to be put in the grave: and hence the common imprecation among the Turks and Persians, "Be covered with earth," or, "Earth be upon thy head." VERSE 14 - there. * :5 VERSE 15 - Absalom. * 2Sa 15:37 VERSE 16 - God save the king. Heb. let the king live. * 1Sa 10:24 1Ki 1:25,34 2Ki 11:12 Da 2:4; 5:10; 6:6,21 Mt 21:9 VERSE 17 - Is this thy. * De 32:6 - why wentest. * 2Sa 15:32-37; 19:25 Pr 17:17; 18:24 VERSE 18 * 2Sa 5:1-3 1Sa 16:13 VERSE 19 - should I not serve. * 2Sa 15:34 1Sa 28:2; 29:8 Ps 55:21 Ga 2:13 VERSE 20 - Give counsel. * Ex 1:10 Ps 2:2; 37:12,13 Pr 21:30 Isa 8:10; 29:15 Mt 27:1 * Ac 4:23-28 VERSE 21 - Go in. * Ge 6:4; 38:16 - unto thy. * 2Sa 12:11; 15:16; 20:3 Ge 35:22 Le 18:8; 20:11 1Ki 2:17,22 1Co 5:1 - abhorred. * Ge 34:30 1Sa 13:4 - thy father. * Ge 49:3,4 - then shall. * 1Sa 27:12 - the hands. * 2Sa 2:7 Zec 8:13 VERSE 22 - the top. * 2Sa 11:2 - went in. * 2Sa 12:11,12; 15:16; 20:3 Nu 25:6 Isa 3:9 Jer 3:3; 8:12 Eze 24:7 * Php 3:19 VERSE 23 - as if. * Nu 27:21 1Sa 30:8 Ps 28:2 1Pe 4:11 - oracle of God. Heb. word of God. * Ps 19:7 - so was. The first counsel of this sagacious but wicked man to Absalom was more like an oracle of Satan, both for subtlety and atrocity. He advised the shameless measure just detailed, in order to establish Absalom, and to preclude the possibility of a reconciliation with David. The wives of a conquered king were always the property of the conqueror; and in possessing these he appeared to possess the right to the kingdom. - all the counsel. * 2Sa 17:14,23 Job 5:12; 28:28 Jer 4:22; 8:9 Mt 11:25 Lu 16:8 Ro 1:22 * 1Co 3:19,20 Jas 13 3:13-18 - both. * 2Sa 15:12 Ec 10:1 GOTO NEXT CHAPTER - TREASURY OF SCRIPTURE KNOWLEDGE INDEX
