    King James Bible - 2 Samuel 3:13

    And he said, Well; I will make a league with thee: but one thing I require of thee, that is, Thou shalt not see my face, except thou first bring Michal Saul's daughter, when thou comest to see my face.

    World English Bible

    He said, "Good; I will make a treaty with you; but one thing I require of you. That is, you shall not see my face, unless you first bring Michal, Saul's daughter, when you come to see my face."

    Douay-Rheims - 2 Samuel 3:13

    And he said: Very well: I will make a league with thee: but one thing I require of thee, saying: Thou shalt not see my face before thou bring Michol the daughter of Saul: and so thou shalt come, and see me.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    And he said, Well; I will make a league with thee: but one thing I require of thee, that is, Thou shalt not see my face, except thou shalt first bring Michal, Saul's daughter, when thou comest to see my face.

    VERSE (13) -
    Ge 43:3; 44:23,26

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:13

    Y David dijo: Bien; yo harť contigo alianza; mas una cosa te pido, y es que no me vengas a ver sin que primero traigas a Mical la hija de Saķl, cuando vinieres a verme.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Samuel 3:13

    Verse 13. Except thou first bring Michal]
    David had already six wives at Hebron; and none of them could have such pretensions to legitimacy as Michal, who had been taken away from him and married to Phaltiel.

    However distressing it was to take her from a husband who loved her most tenderly, (see ver. 16,) yet prudence and policy required that he should strengthen his own interest in the kingdom as much as possible; and that he should not leave a princess in the possession of a man who might, in her right, have made pretensions to the throne. Besides, she was his own lawful wife, and he had a right to demand her when he pleased.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 13. And he said, well, I will make a league with thee , etc.] He accepted of the offer, he was ready and willing to enter into a covenant of friendship with him, and forgive all past offences: but one thing I require of thee ; as the condition of this covenant: that is, thou shall not see my face ; be admitted into my presence, or have any mark of my favour and respect: except thou first bring Michal, Saulís daughter, when thou comest to see my face ; he insisted on it that Michal, Saulís daughter, and his wife, should be brought along with him, and presented to him; this was the preliminary to the league and covenant; if this was not complied with, the proposal would not be attended to. This shows the great affection David retained for his first wife, though he had had six since, (see 2 Samuel 3:2-5), and though she had lived with another man, ( 1 Samuel 25:44); as also his great regard to the honour of Saulís family, that one of them might share with him in the grandeur of the kingdom; though this also might be a piece of policy in him, to gain the friends of Saulís family to him.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 7-21 - Many, like Abner, are not above committing base
    crimes, who are to proud to bear reproof, or even the suspicion of being guilty. While me go on in sin, and apparently without concern, they are often consciou that they are fighting against God. Many mean to serve their ow purposes; and will betray those who trust them, when they can get an advantage. Yet the Lord serves his own designs, even by those who ar thus actuated by revenge, ambition, or lust; but as they intend not to honour him, in the end they will be thrown aside with contempt. Ther was real generosity both to Michal and to the memory of Saul, in David's receiving the former, remembering probably how once he owed his life to her affection, and knowing that she was separated from his partly by her father's authority. Let no man set his heart on tha which he is not entitled to. If any disagreement has separated husban and wife, as they expect the blessing of God, let them be reconciled and live together in love.
