John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

See, I will tarry in the plain of the wilderness,.... Towards the way of which David and the people went when they came over Kidron, 2 Samuel 15:23,

until there come word from you to certify me; of the truth of the conspiracy, of the number of the conspirators, and who they are, what progress they have made, whether come to Jerusalem, and how they behave there, if come; or of anything relative hereunto he could get intelligence of.

Whedon's Commentary on the Bible

28.I will tarry in the plain of the wilderness — This could be none other than the plain of Jericho. 2 Kings 25:5. But the text reads עברית, which in the singular is rendered, 2 Samuel 19:18, a ferry-boat; and it is best to regard the plural, both here and in 2 Samuel 17:16, as equivalent to מעברות, crossing places, or fords. The crossing places of the desert would be the fords of the Jordan, which were on the eastern border of the desert. Furst renders it, in the outermost sides of the steppe.

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

(28) The plain of the wilderness.—This is the reading of the Hebrew margin here and at 2 Samuel 17:16, and is followed by the ancient versions. It is used for the wide valley of the Jordan in which Jericho is situated; but in both places the Hebrew text is better, the fords, both as a more definite place where messengers would find David, and also as a place of strategic importance where a retreat across the Jordan was open at any moment.
