2 Samuel 16:8 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

When the king asked him, "What are these for thee?" i.e., what art thou going to do with them? Ziba replied, "The asses are for the king's family to ride upon (to ride upon in turn), the bread and summer fruits for the young men (the king's servants) to eat, and the wine for those that are faint in the desert to drink" (see at 2 Samuel 15:23). The Chethib ולהלחם is evidently a copyist's error for והלּחם.
