John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And the king answered the people roughly,.... In a blustering manner, gave them hard words and severe menaces, being worked up to such a spirit by his young counsellors:

and forsook the old men's counsel that they gave him: to give them good words and kind promises.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

1 Kings 12:13 And the king answered the people roughly, and forsook the old men’s counsel that they gave him;

Ver. 13. And the king answered the people roughly.] But to his great loss; for he lost those ten tribes with a churlish breath, whom he would, and might not, recover with blood: being so much more wilful than his father, as less wise; all head and no heart.
