SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:40 Se levantó entonces Simei, y enalbardó su asno, y fue a Gat, a Aquis, a procurar sus siervos. Fue, pues, Simei, y volvió sus siervos de Gat.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 2:40 Verse 40. And Shimei-went to Gath] It is astonishing that with his eyes wide open he would thus run into the jaws of death.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 40. And Shimei arose, and saddled his ass, and went to Gath to Achish to seek his servants , etc.] And demand them; through the passion he was in with his servants, and his hurry to get them home, and the covetous disposition which prevailed on him, he might forget, or be tempted to neglect, the prohibition he was under not to go out of Jerusalem; or he might think Solomon had forgot it; or that he could come and go secretly without his knowledge; or if he should know of it, he might hope he would never punish him with death for so small a fault; however, so it was ordered by the providence of God leaving him to his own lust, and the temptations of Satan, that he might suffer just punishment for cursing David: and Shimei went and brought his servants from Gath ; for the king being at peace with Israel, and a tributary to them also, did not choose to detain them, but delivered them up lest it should be resented, and bring him into trouble.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 35-46 - The old malignity remains in the unconverted heart, and a watchful ey should be kept on those who, like Shimei, have manifested their enmity but have given no evidence of repentance. No engagements or danger will restrain worldly men; they go on, though they forfeit their live and souls. Let us remember, God will not accommodate his judgment to us. His eye is over us; and let us strive to walk as in his presence Let our every act, word, and thought, be governed by this great truth that the hour is quickly coming when the smallest circumstances of ou lives shall be brought to light, and our eternal state be fixed by righteous and unerring God. Thus Solomon's throne was established in peace, as the type of the Redeemer's kingdom of peace an righteousness. And it is a comfort, in reference to the enmity of the church's enemies, that, how much soever they rage, it is a vain thin they imagine. Christ's throne is established, and they cannot shake it __________________________________________________________________
