26 But if he thus say, I have no delight in thee; behold, here am I, let him do to me as seemeth good unto him.
26 But if he says, 'I am not pleased with you,' then I am ready; let him do to me whatever seems good to him."
26 But if he says, 'I have no pleasure in you,' behold, here I am, let him do to me what seems good to him."
26 But if he says, 'I'm not pleased with you' - well, he can then do with me whatever he pleases."
26 But if He says thus: 'I have no delight in you,' here I am, let Him do to me as seems good to Him."
26 But if he is through with me, then let him do what seems best to him."
Matthew Henry's Commentary on 2 Samuel 15:26
Commentary on 2 Samuel 15:24-30
(Read 2 Samuel 15:24-30)
David is very careful for the safety of the ark. It is right to be more concerned for the church's prosperity than our own; to prefer the success of the gospel above our own wealth, credit, ease, and safety. Observe with what satisfaction and submission David speaks of the Divine disposal. It is our interest, as well as our duty, cheerfully to acquiesce in the will of God, whatever befalls us. Let us see God's hand in all events; and that we may not be afraid of what shall be, let us see all events in God's hand. David's sin was ever before him, Psalm 38:4.
