John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Samuel 19:16

And Shimei the son of Gera, a Benjamite, which [was] of
Bahurim
Of whom see ( 2 Samuel 16:5 ) ;

hasted and came down with the men of Judah to meet King David:
he took the first opportunity to meet the king, and ask his pardon for his ill treatment of him when he fled from Jerusalem; for, hearing: that Absalom was slain, and the victory was on the side of David, who was returning in triumph, he thought it advisable as soon as possible to make his submission, and entreat forgiveness, lest he should fall a just sacrifice to his vengeance; and a better opportunity he could not well have than to go along with the men of Judah, who met the king first of all.
