    SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:21

    Y Joab dijo a Cusi: Ve tú, y di al rey lo que has visto. Y Cusi hizo reverencia a Joab, y corrió.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Samuel 18:21

    Verse 21. Tell the king what thou hast seen] At this
    time the death of Absalom was not publicly known; but Joab had given Cushi private information of it. This Ahimaaz had not, for he could not tell the king whether Absalom were dead. To this Joab seems to refer, ver. 22: "Thou hast no tidings ready."

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 21. Then said
    Joab to Cushi , etc.] The Ethiopian, or blackamoor; who either was an Ethiopian by birth and proselyted, or he was an Israelite of a black complexion, and therefore so called; and was judged a proper person by the general to carry such dismal news to the king, as he knew it would be. Some Jewish writers take him to be the same with Cush the Benjaminite, in the title of the seventh psalm, ( Psalm 7:1); and that he is the same that told Joab he saw Absalom hanging in an oak, and declared that, if a thousand shekels of silver were offered him, he would not have put forth his hand against him, ( 2 Samuel 18:10-12); though some think this was one of the ten young men that waited on Joab, and by his orders slew Absalom; but it would have been dangerous for one of these to have carried the tidings, had he been known by David to have done it: go tell the king what thou hast seen : by which it should seem that he was present when Absalom was killed: and Cushi bowed himself unto Joab ; in reverence to him as his general, and in thankfulness for sending him on this errand: and ran ; as fast as he could.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 19-33 - By directing
    David to give God thanks for his victory, Ahimaaz prepare him for the news of his son's death. The more our hearts are fixed an enlarged, in thanksgiving to God for our mercies, the better dispose we shall be to bear with patience the afflictions mixed with them. Some think David's wish arose from concern about Absalom's everlastin state; but he rather seems to have spoken without due thought. He is to be blamed for showing so great fondness for a graceless son. Also for quarrelling with Divine justice. And for opposing the justice of the nation, which, as king, he had to administer, and which ought to be preferred before natural affection. The best men are not always in good frame; we are apt to over-grieve for what we over-loved. But whil we learn from this example to watch and pray against sinful indulgence or neglect of our children, may we not, in David, perceive a shadow of the Saviour's love, who wept over, prayed for, and even suffered deat for mankind, though vile rebels and enemies __________________________________________________________________
