2 Samuel 10-16

2 Samuel
10.6  had made themselves repulsive... The text makes this sound like the result might have been a surprise for them, but what did they expect.
10.12  In addition to Joab's othter talents it appears that he had a flair for the dramatic.
11.11 Uriah was an officer's officer.
11.27  the thing that David had done displeased the LORD
12.6  no pity... implies that that we should not only avoid theft, but also be full of pity toward an unfortunate neighbor.
13.12-13  four reasons given by Tamar that Ammon shouldn't do this evil.
     1. It is not done in Israel.  We should have a sense of honor in our conduct as God's people.
     2. It was foolish (or disgraceful) in the sense of Nabal, Abigail's first husband.
     3.  Her shame.  (We are loosing our shame in this country at an alarming rate.)
     4.  His reputation would be sullied.  And when our personal pleasure becomes more important than our reputation, we are in a bad place.
15.37  David's friend...  and a friend in need.
16.12  It may e that the LORD will look on my affliction.  Instead of why o why is God doing this to me. Make it stop!
