Everett's Study Notes on the Holy Scriptures

2 Samuel 19

Verses 1-43

2 Samuel 19:22 And David said, What have I to do with you, ye sons of Zeruiah, that ye should this day be adversaries unto me? shall there any man be put to death this day in Israel? for do not I know that I am this day king over Israel?

2 Samuel 19:22 “shall there any man be put to death this day in Israel” - Comments - It is hard to carry out vengeance on someone when the Lord has just poured out His blessings on us. I remember in November 2000, I was upset with several staff members for making personal calls at work. These phone calls have cost the company some money. When the director of the company came to town, and gave me many blessings, I no longer felt in mood to judge, but rather to bless. I, therefore, forgave the staff with just a warning not to do it again.
