CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
14:9 Be guiltless - If through thy forgetfulness or neglect of this my just cause, my adversaries prevail and destroy my son, my desire is, that God would not lay it to the king's charge, but rather to me and mine, so the king may be exempted thereby. Whereby she insinuates, that such an omission will bring guilt upon him; and yet most decently orders her phrase so as not to seem to blame or threaten the king. This sense seems best to agree with David's answer, which shew's that she desired some farther assurances of the king's care.
I personally guarantee his safety. You may hold me responsible if I don't bring him back to you. Then let me bear the blame forever.
1 Samuel 25:24
She fell at his feet and said, "I accept all blame in this matter, my lord. Please listen to what I have to say.
2 Samuel 14:8
"Leave it to me," the king told her. "Go home, and I'll see to it that no one touches him."
2 Samuel 14:10
"If anyone objects," the king said, "bring him to me. I can assure you he will never complain again!"
1 Kings 2:33
May their blood be on Joab and his descendants forever, and may the LORD grant peace forever to David, his descendants, his dynasty, and his throne."
