SEV Biblia, Chapter 13:13 Porque, Â¿dónde iría yo con mi deshonra? Y aun tú serías estimado como uno de los locos de Israel. Te ruego, pues, ahora que hables al rey, que no me negará a ti.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Samuel 13:13 Verse 13. Speak unto the king] So it appears that she thought that the king, her father, would give her to him as wife. This is another strong mark of indelicacy in those simple but barbarous times. There might have been some excuse for such connections under the patriarchal age, but there was none now. But perhaps she said this only to divert him from his iniquitous purpose, that she might get out of his hands.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 13. And I, whither shall I cause my shame to go ? etc.] She desires him to consider hey reputation, which would be lost; was she to go into a corner, into a place the most private and retired, yet she would blush at the thought of the crime committed; and still less able would she be to lift up her face in any public company; nor could she ever expect to be admitted into the matrimonial state; in short, her character would be entirely ruined: and as for thee, thou shalt be as one of the fools in Israel ; as the vilest and basest and most abandoned in the nation; who ought of all men to be most careful of his reputation, being a prince in Israel, and heir apparent to the throne: now therefore, I pray thee, speak unto the king : to give me to thee in marriage: for he will not withhold me from thee ; this she said, either as ignorant of the law, which forbids such marriages, or as supposing the king had a power to dispense with it, and, rather than he should die for love, would; though she seems to say this, and anything that occurred to her mind, to put him off of his wicked design for the present, holding then she should be delivered from him; besides, she was not his sister by the mother’s side, and, as the Jews say, was born of a captive woman before she was proselyted and married to David, and so was free for Amnon f217 ; and others say she was the daughter of Maacah by a former husband, and not by David.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-20 - From henceforward David was followed with one trouble after another Adultery and murder were David's sins, the like sins among his children were the beginnings of his punishment: he was too indulgent to his children. Thus David might trace the sins of his children to his ow misconduct, which must have made the anguish of the chastisement worse Let no one ever expect good treatment from those who are capable of attempting their seduction; but it is better to suffer the greates wrong than to commit the least sin.
