SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:6 Tú pues harás conforme a tu sabiduría; no dejarás descender sus canas al sepulcro en paz.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 2:6 Verse 6. Let not his hoar head go down to the grave in peace.] It would have been an insult to justice not to have taken the life of Joab. David was culpable in delaying it so long; but probably the circumstances of his government would not admit of his doing it sooner. According to the law of God, Joab, having murdered Abner and Amasa, should die. And had not David commanded Solomon to perform this act of justice, he could not have died in the approbation of his Maker.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 6. Do therefore according to thy wisdom , etc.] Which though young began to appear in him, even in the life of his father; he therefore exhorts him to use the wisdom he had, and take the first and fittest opportunity to cut him off for his former murders and late treason, as a dangerous man to his government and the peace of it: and let not his hoary head go down to the grave in peace ; that is, let him not die a natural, but a violent death; and let not his grey hairs be any argument for sparing him, or any reason for delaying the taking of him off, because he would in course die quickly; for he must be now an old man, as old as David, or perhaps older; since he had been his general forty years, even all the time of his reign; (see 2 Samuel 2:13).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 5-11 - These dying counsels concerning Joab and Shimei, did not come from personal anger, but for the security of Solomon's throne, which was the murders he had committed, but would readily repeat them to carry an purpose; though long reprieved, he shall be reckoned with at last. Tim does not wear out the guilt of any sin, particularly of murder Concerning Shimei, Hold him not guiltless; do not think him any tru friend to thee, or thy government, or fit to be trusted; he has no les malice now than he had then. David's dying sentiments are recorded, a delivered under the influence of the Holy Ghost, 2Sa 23:1-7. The Lor discovered to him the offices and the salvation of that glorious personage, the Messiah, whose coming he then foretold, and from whom he derived all his comforts and expectations. That passage gives a decide proof that David died under the influence of the Holy Ghost, in the exercise of faith and hope.
