(32) Provided the king of sustenance.--An old use of the preposition "of," meaning with. The word is the same here as that translated in the next verse "feed thee," and there is an especial fitness in the use of the same word in both cases which is lost in the English Version. It is translated "nourish" in Genesis 45:11; Genesis 47:12; Genesis 1:21, &c., and "sustain" in 1Kings 17:9, Nehemiah 9:21, &c. The king proposes to return Barzillai's service in kind, but multiplied manifold.

19:31-39 Barzillai thought he had done himself honour in doing the king any service. Thus, when the saints shall be called to inherit the kingdom, they will be amazed at the recompence being so very far beyond the service, Mt 25:37. A good man would not go any where to be burdensome; or, will rather be so to his own house than to another's. It is good for all, but especially becomes old people, to think and speak much of dying. The grave is ready for me, let me go and get ready for it.
