John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Samuel 16:14

And the king, and all the people that [were] with him, came
weary
With their journey, and through grief and trouble at what they met with:

and refreshed themselves there:
that is, at Bahurim, with food and rest; which revived their spirits, and put as it were new life and soul into them, as the word used signifies. Josephus F25 says, when David came to Jordan, he refreshed his weary men.
