with the servants

2 Samuel 11:9
But Uriah slept at the door of the king's house with all the servants of his lord, and went not down to his house.









(13) He made him drunk.--This fresh attempt of David to conceal his crime by attempting to send Uriah to his house while in a state of intoxication does not need comment, but Uriah's resolve was so strong that it still governed his conduct while in this almost irresponsible condition.

Verse 13. - He made him drunk. David thus adds sin to sin, and, in order to accomplish his vile end, he degrades the brave soldier whom already he had dishonoured. But even when intoxicated Uriah kept to his determination; and though on this second night there would not be the same pleasure in chatting with old comrades seen again after long absence, he still sleeps in the guard room. And thus there were witnesses that he had not gone to his house.
