SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:22 Entonces Ahimaas hijo de Sadoc volvió a decir a Joab: Sea lo que fuere, yo correré ahora tras Cusi. Y Joab dijo: Hijo mío, Â¿para qué has tú de correr, pues que no hallarás premio por las nuevas?
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 22. Then said Ahimaaz the son of Zadok yet again to Joab , etc.] He could not be easy, even though a messenger was dispatched, but pressed Joab still: but howsoever, let me, I pray thee, also run after Cushi ; only permit me to go after him, though not as a messenger: and Joab said, wherefore wilt thou run, my son ? having a great affection for him, and concerned that he should take trouble on him to no purpose: seeing thou hast no tidings ready ; no news to carry, but what Cushi is gone with, and so can have no audience of the king, nor any reward from him.
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 __________________________________________________________________
