saying [heb] word

And when Hushai was come to Absalom,.... Into the council chamber, very probably:

Absalom spake unto him, saying, Ahithophel hath spoken after this manner; and then related the counsel he had given as before:

shall we do after his saying? is it right to proceed on this scheme, and carry it into execution?

if not, speak thou; thy mind freely, without any reserve, or fear of giving any offence. 17:1-21 Here was a wonderful effect of Divine Providence blinding Absalom's mind and influencing his heart, that he could not rest in Ahithophel's counsel, and that he should desire Hushai's advice. But there is no contending with that God who can arm a man against himself, and destroy him by his own mistakes and passions. Ahithophel's former counsel was followed, for God intended to correct David; but his latter counsel was not followed, for God meant not to destroy him. He can overrule all counsels. Whatever wisdom or help any man employs or affords, the success is from God alone, who will not let his people perish.
