Parallel Commentaries
Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary

1:11-31 Observe Nathan's address to Bathsheba. Let me give thee counsel how to save thy own life, and the life of thy son. Such as this is the counsel Christ's ministers give us in his name, to give all diligence, not only that no man take our crown, Re 3:11, but that we save our lives, even the lives of our souls. David made a solemn declaration of his firm cleaving to his former resolution, that Solomon should be his successor. Even the recollection of the distresses from which the Lord redeemed him, increased his comfort, inspired his hopes, and animated him to his duty, under the decays of nature and the approach of death.

Pulpit Commentary

Verse 30. - Even as I sware unto thee by the Lord God of Israel, saying, Assuredly [Heb. כּי that, often prefixed to the oratio directa; not lending any emphasis ( = immo), as Keil says the first and third כּי of this verse do, but in English simply redundant. See on vers. 13, 17] Solomon thy son shall reign after me, and he shall sit upon my throne [same words as in vers. 13, 17, 24. These close repetitions are the habit of the East] in my stead, even so [Heb. that so] will I (certainly [not in Hebrews] do this day.

Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible

Even as I sware unto thee by the Lord God of Israel,.... And so owns and confirms the truth of what Nathan had suggested to Bathsheba, and she had asserted, 1 Kings 1:13;

saying, assuredly Solomon thy son shall reign after me, and he shall sit upon my throne in my stead; this was the substance of the oath:

even so will I certainly do this day; perform this oath, and set Solomon on the throne.
