SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:17 Y hablů Abner con los ancianos de Israel, diciendo: Ayer y anteayer procurabais que David fuese rey sobre vosotros;
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 17. And Abner had communication with the elders of Israel , etc.] Had a conference with the chiefs of the several tribes about the affairs of the kingdom: saying, ye sought for David in time past [to be] king over you ; that is, at the death of Saul, and not before; for it was pretty generally known throughout the kingdom that David was anointed by Samuel and Saul himself had declared that he knew the kingdom would come to him; so that upon his death it was the general expectation and desire of the people that the government would devolve upon him, as it doubtless would, if Abner had not set up one of Saulís house, and persuaded the Israelites to own him their king.
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.
