Preface - Joab by threats forceth David to cease mourning. The Israelites are earnest to bring the king back. David sendeth to the priests to incite the men of Judah. Shimei making submission is pardoned. Mephibosheth cometh to meet David, and complaineth of his servant's treachery; half his land is restored to him. Barzillai attendeth the king over Jordan, and is gratefully dismissed; Chimham is received into the king's family. The men of Israel expostulate with the men of Judah for not calling them to take part in bringing back the king.
2 Samuel 19
Preface - Paul sheweth that, though he had been favoured with visions and revelations, yet for commendation of his apostleship he chose rather to glory in his infirmities: blaming the Corinthians, who had seen in him all the signs of an apostle for forcing him to such vain boasting. He telleth them of his design of visiting them again with the same disinterestedness and fatherly affection as before. He justifieth himself from any crafty exortion by his messengers; and expresseth his fears, lest, both to his sorrow and theirs, he should find many notorious disorders still not repented of among them.

Faith's view of Christ
And when he had so said, he showed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad when they saw the Lord. - John 20 v 20.
When the Lord of glory left His Father's bosom, and came into this world, we are sure it was for a purpose suited to His divine nature. Christ came to make men glad. It was said of Him, 'The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord hath appointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek.' (Isaiah 61 v 1.)
Ah! sure, He mus be a good Saviour that was to bind up broken hearts, and to make all men glad. Therefore, when He came, He said, 'That their joy might be full.' And you see in the verse before our text, His first words to His disciples were, 'Peace be unto you.' But the devil want you to believe that we want to take away your mirth and joy. He is a liar, and he was a liar from the beginning. Jesus came not to destroy men's lives, but to save them; so do we. We come to break your false joy - to awaken you from your dream - before you be dashed into the burning lake. Ah! we come to give you fullness of joy that cannot wither - joy that cannot die. True, believers have sorrow; they have a poor frail body, and they may have false friends. They may have ungodly children; they have temptations and persecutions. The world knows nothing of these sorrows. But they have a joy that the world cannot give or take away. They have a joy to balance all their sorrows; they have joy unspeakable and full of glory'. It is a joy that will never die. It will be brighter and brighter throughout an endless eternity.
