SEV Biblia, Chapter 14:11 Dijo ella entonces : Te ruego, oh rey, que te acuerdes del SEÑOR tu Dios, que no dejes a los vengadores de la sangre aumentar el daño con destruir a mi hijo. Y él respondió: Vive el SEÑOR, que no caerá ni un cabello de la cabeza de tu hijo en tierra.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Samuel 14:11 Verse 11. Let the king remember the Lord thy God] Consider that when God is earnestly requested to show mercy, he does it in the promptest manner; he does not wait till the case is hopeless: the danger to which my son is exposed is imminent; if the king do not decide the business instantly, it may be too late.
And he said, As the Lord liveth] Thus he binds himself by a most solemn promise and oath; and this is what the woman wanted to extort.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 11. Then said she, I pray thee, let the king remember the Lord thy God , etc.] Who is a God gracious and merciful, and imitate him in showing mercy to the distressed; pitying their case, having compassion upon them, and relieving them, as she hoped he would commiserate her case, and provide for the safety of her son. Some think she desires not only to give his word, but his oath, for her son’s safety: “remember the Lord thy God”; i.e. make mention of him, as men do when they swear by him; swear to me by the Lord thy God: that thou wouldest not suffer the revengers of blood to destroy any more, lest they destroy my son , or, “from multiplying the avenger of blood” f240 ; that there might not rise one after another to destroy her son: her meaning is, that the king would swear to her, and give out a general prohibition, an universal edict, that no one should slay her son; otherwise if only the avenger of blood that was next of kin was forbidden, others would rise up one after another, so that he would never be in safety: and he said, [as] the Lord liveth ; if she desired an oath, he granted her request, and swore by the living God: there shall not one hair of thy son fall to the earth ; so far shall his life be from being touched, or taken away, that the least hurt shall not be done him, as this proverbial expression signifies.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-20 - We may notice here, how this widow pleads God's mercy, and his clemenc toward poor guilty sinners. The state of sinners is a state of banishment from God. God pardons none to the dishonour of his law an justice, nor any who are impenitent; nor to the encouragement of crimes, or the hurt of others.
