    World English Bible

    They took Absalom, and cast him into the great pit in the forest, and raised
    over him a very great heap of stones. Then all Israel fled everyone to his tent.

    And they took Absalom, and cast him into a great pit in the forest, and they laid an exceeding great heap of stories upon him: but all Israel fled to their own dwellings.

    wood, and laid a very great heap of stones upon him: and all Israel fled every one to his tent.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:17

    Tomando después a Absalón, le echaron en un gran foso en el bosque, y levantaron sobre él un montón muy grande de piedras; y todo Israel huyó, cada uno a sus estancias.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Samuel 18:17

    Verse 17. And laid a very great heap of
    stones] This was the method of burying heroes, and even traitors, the heap of stones being designed to perpetuate the memory of the event, whether good or bad. The ancient cairns or heaps of stones, in different parts of the world, are of this kind.

    The various tumuli or barrows in England are the same as the cairns in different parts of Ireland and Scotland. In the former, stones were not plenty; hence they heaped up great mounds of earth.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 17. And they took Absalom, and cast him into a great pit in the wood , etc.] In the wood of Ephraim, near to which the battle was fought, and into which Absalom fled, and where he was slain: and laid a very great heap of stones upon him : his punishment was very exemplary; he was first hanged on an oak, and then thrust through with darts, and swords, and then covered with stones, ( 2 Samuel 18:9,14,15), pointing to the death that a rebellious son, according to the law, ought to die, ( Deuteronomy 21:21); though this might be done in honour of him as a king’s son; for such “tumuli”, or heaps of stones or earth, were used by the ancients as sepulchral monuments, and the larger the more honourable f311 ; (see Gill on “ Joshua 7:26”) and (see Gill on “ Joshua 8:29”); and all Israel fled everyone to his tent ; or to his city, as the Targum; everyone returned to their own house, and to their own business, and so the rebellion ceased.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 9-18 - Let young people look upon
    Absalom, hanging on a tree, accursed forsaken of heaven and earth; there let them read the Lord's abhorrenc of rebellion against parents. Nothing can preserve men from misery an contempt, but heavenly wisdom and the grace of God.
