Wherefore now return
and go in peace;
not only in a peaceable manner, easy and satisfied, as David was at his very heart to hear this, but all prosperity and happiness attend thee; the Jews F14 distinguish between wishing persons to go in peace, and to go to peace; the former they observe has not issued happily, when the other has, and they instance in the wish of Jethro to Moses, and of David to Absalom;
that thou displease not the lords of the Philistines:
and what would be the consequence of that he could not say, but suggests it would be most for his peace and safety to depart.
