Study 11 From the Book of 2 Samuel is: 2 Samuel 16:15 – 17:29
What are the reasons for Ahitophel’s first piece of advice to Absalom? What do you think would have been David’s first thought (cf. 12:11, 12)? Is this the key to David’s rather defeatist attitude?
17:1-14. Was Ahitophel’s counsel good? If so, why was it that Husbai’s advice won the day?
How was David rewarded for his previous generosity? Notice who Shobi was (See 2 Sa. 10:2).
