Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary

(3) And Solomon told her all her questions: there was not anything hid from the king, which he told her not.

How fully and satisfactorily doth the Lord Jesus tell the poor sinner all that is in his heart, when he manifesteth himself to him otherwise than he doeth to the world. Everyone that hath been with Jesus can bear testimony to this, and like the Samaritan woman, can certify this is Christ, by such an unfolding of the heart. See John 4:29.
