SEV Biblia, Chapter 14:5 Y el rey dijo: Â¿Qué tienes? Y ella respondió: Yo a la verdad soy una mujer viuda y mi marido es muerto.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Samuel 14:5 Verse 5. I am indeed a widow woman] It is very possible that the principal facts mentioned here were real, and that Joab found out a person whose circumstances bore a near resemblance to that which he wished to represent.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 5. And the king said unto her, what aileth thee ? etc.] Or what is thy case? What is the condition, and what the circumstances, that thou art in, which require help and assistance? intimating that he was ready to grant it on knowledge thereof; however, he was ready to hear what she had to say: and she answered, I [am] indeed a widow woman ; of a truth a widow, as the Targum; she was really one, a widow indeed, as in ( 1 Timothy 5:3,5); not one that was separated from her husband, he being alive, or divorced from him on any account; and therefore she adds, and mine husband is dead ; and has been a long time; this she said to move the pity and compassion of the king, who, as the supreme magistrate in God’s stead, was a Father of the fatherless, and the judge of the widow.
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.
