2 Samuel 15:23 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

When outside the city the king and all the people in his suite (i.e., the royal family and their servants) halted at "the house of the distance." המּרחק is probably a proper name given to a house in the neighbourhood of the city and on the road to Jericho, which was called "the farthest house," viz., from the city.

Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

all the country

Romans 12:15 Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.

the brook The brook {Kidron}, which is but a few paces broad, runs along the valley of Jehoshaphat, east of Jerusalem, to the south-west corner of the city, and then, turning to the south-east, empties itself into the Dead Sea. Like the Ilissus, it is dry at least nine months in the year, being only furnished with water in the winter, and after heavy rains: its bed is narrow and deep, which indicates that it must formerly have been the channel for waters which have found some other, and probably subterraneous course.
