28 All my grandfather's descendants deserved nothing but death from my lord the king, but you gave your servant a place among those who eat at your table. So what right do I have to make any more appeals to the king?"

Matthew Henry's Commentary on 2 Samuel 19:28

Commentary on 2 Samuel 19:24-30

(Read 2 Samuel 19:24-30)

David recalls the forfeiture of Mephibosheth's estate; and he expressed joy for the king's return. A good man contentedly bears his own losses, while he sees Israel in peace, and the Son of David exalted.
