SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:28 Y vino la noticia hasta Joab; porque también Joab se había adherido a Adonías, si bien no se había adherido a Absalón. Y huyó Joab al tabernáculo del SEÑOR, y tomó los cuernos del altar.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 2:28 Verse 28. Tidings came to Joab] He heard that Adonijah had been slain and Abiathar banished, and probably he had heard of David's dying charge to Solomon. Fearing therefore for his personal safety, he takes refuge at the tabernacle, as claiming Divine protection, and desiring to have his case decided by God alone; or perhaps a spark of remorse is now kindled; and, knowing that he must die, he wishes to die in the house of God, as it were under the shadow, that he might receive the mercy of the Almighty.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 28. Then tidings came to Joab , etc.] Of the death of Adonijah, and the deposition of Abiathar: for Joab had turned after Adonijah ; publicly appeared at his feast, when he was saluted king by him, and others, and privately gave him advice in the affair of Abishag: though he turned not after Absalom ; did not join with him in his rebellion, but faithfully adhered to David; and yet both in his lifetime, and after his death, acted the traitorous part in favour of Adonijah: Ben Gersom gives these words a different sense, as if he was blameworthy in both cases; that he turned after Adonijah to make him king, without consulting David, and having his consent; and he did not turn after Absalom, to deliver him from death, as David commanded him; but the former sense is best: and Joab fled unto the tabernacle of the Lord ; which was at Gibeon, (see 2 Chronicles 1:3); it was four miles from Jerusalem to the north, situated on an hill f31 ; according to Josephus f32 , it was forty furlongs, or five miles, from it; though Kimchi thinks it was the altar in Jerusalem he fled to, which was before the ark, in the tent David made for it; but that is never called the tabernacle of the Lord, only that of Moses: Joab’s fleeing hither showed guilt, and that he was in the conspiracy of Adonijah, and was conscious he deserved to die, and now expected it, since Adonijah was put to death; while he remained reprieved or pardoned, he thought himself safe, but now in danger, and therefore fled for it: and caught hold of the horns of the altar ; (see Gill on “ 1 Kings 1:50”).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 26-34 - Solomon's words to Abiathar, and his silence, imply that some recen conspiracies had been entered into. Those that show kindness to God' people shall have it remembered to their advantage. For this reaso Solomon spares Abiathar's life, but dismisses him from his offices. I case of such sins as the blood of beasts would atone for, the altar wa a refuge, but not in Joab's case. Solomon looks upward to God as the Author of peace, and forward to eternity as the perfection of it. The Lord of peace himself gives us that peace which is everlasting.
