Bible Verse Explanations and Resources


2 Samuel 11:7

Albert Barnes
Notes on the Whole Bible

David was forced to stoop to falsehood and dissimulation in the vain hope of hiding his sin.

Matthew Henry
Concise Bible Commentary
Giving way to sin hardens the heart, and provokes the departure of the Holy Spirit. Robbing a man of his reason, is worse than robbing him of his money; and drawing him into sin, is worse than drawing him into any wordly trouble whatever.
