Matthew Henry's Commentary on 1 Kings 1:10

Commentary on 1 Kings 1:5-10

(Read 1 Kings 1:5-10)

No worldly wisdom, nor experience, nor sacredness of character, can insure the continuance in any former course of those who remain under the power of self-love. But we may well wonder by what arts Joab and Abiathar could be drawn aside.
