John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And when she had brought them unto him to eat,.... Not only into the chamber, but to the side of the bed or couch where he had laid himself, or sat, in a proper position to answer his purpose:

he took hold of her; by the arm, or threw his hands about her:

and said unto her, come, lie with me, my sister; one would think the relation he observes she stood in to him would have checked him from making so vile a motion.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

2 Samuel 13:11 And when she had brought [them] unto him to eat, he took hold of her, and said unto her, Come lie with me, my sister.

Ver. 11. Come lie with me, my sister.] Os ferreum! how could he have the face to say thus to a sister? But of some men Seneca saith truly, Nolunt solita peccare, et paudet non esse impudentes, they have put off all manhood, and are become dogs, worse than dogs; such were King Agrippa and Bernice, [Acts 25:13] son and daughter to that Herod mentioned in Acts 12:1, and known to live in detestable incest, saith Josephus.
