Chapter 19 then began with David weeping for his son. The king did this in the face of all Israel, including his military, to see.

Joab, the one who killed Absalom (although he had orders not to) had enough of the king mourning. He asked the king if it would have made him happy if his people died and Absalom lived? No response.

Joab commanded the king to straighten up. David straightened up to address Israel and asked Zadok and Abiathar why they have not brought the king back to his palace with his people?

Where’s My Welcome Back?

David was disappointed with his own brothers, the tribe of Judah, because they hadn’t come to make him their king again. Finally, the heads of the tribe of Judah asked David to return and continue his rule over them.

The king began to address all the people who supported or appeared to support his ouster. From Shimei the Benjamite, who cursed him out when he was being exiled by Absalom, to the house of Joseph. They also cursed the king when he was going into exile.

Even Saul’s grandson, Mephibosheth, who did not come out with the king, but stayed back was approached. They all had their apologies in store and their cry for mercy. However, David was very merciful and didn’t have them put to death or banished.

The chapter ends with an argument between the ten tribes and the house of Judah. The argument was over who had more rights and parts in David. The ten tribes argued they had 10 tribes serving him, but Judah argued they were his near kin. It was a fierce argument that Judah took away.

This is the summary of 2nd Samuel chapter 19.
