2 Samuel 11:13

2 Samuel 11:13

And when David had called him
Invited him to sup with him:

he did eat and drink before him;
very freely and plentifully:

and he made him drunk:
this was another sin of David's, done in order to make him forget his oath and vow, and that being inflamed with wine, desires might be excited in him to go home and lie with his wife; but even this scheme did not succeed:

and at even he went out to lie on his bed with the servants of his
in the guard room, where he had lain before:

but went not down to his house;
for he was not so drunk but he remembered his oath, and kept his resolution not to go down to his own house; the Lord no doubt working upon his mind and disinclining him to it.
