2 Samuel 14:30 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

But David could not forgive Absalom altogether. He said to Joab, "Let him turn to his own house, and my face he shall not see." This half forgiveness was an imprudent measure, and bore very bitter fruit. The further account of Absalom is introduced in 2 Samuel 14:25-27 with a description of his personal appearance and family affairs.
