Scofield's Reference Notes
2 Samuel 14



Verse 11

revengers Heb. goel, Redemp. (Kinsman type). (See Scofield "Isaiah 59:20").

Verse 20

angel (See Scofield "Hebrews 1:4").

Verse 24

saw not the king's face

Not so had God taught David to forgive. Legalists have thought Absalom's wilfulness to have been due to over-indulgence on the part of David. There is no such intimation in Scripture. Rather it would seem that had David at this time taken Absalom into intimacy, the rebellion might have been averted.

Verse 27


(See Scofield "2 Samuel 18:18").
