EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)1 Samuel 25:35-36. I have accepted thy person — That is, showed my acceptance of thy person by my grant of thy request.

Told nothing — As he was then incapable of admonition, his reason and conscience being both asleep.Genesis 42:35).

and have accepted thy person: done as she desired, forgave the offence, and so lifted her up, as the word signifies, and made her countenance cheerful; received her present kindly, and took well all she said and did; and promised to grant her, for the future, anything that lay in his power, whenever she should apply to him, see Job 42:8.So David received of her hand that which she had brought him, and said unto her, Go up in peace to thine house; see, I have hearkened to thy voice, and have accepted thy person.
