    Definitions for 1 Kings 15:5

    Save - Except; besides.

    Clarke's Commentary on 1 Kings 15:5

    Save only in the matter of Uriah - Properly speaking, this is the only flagrant fault or crime in the life of David. It was a horrible offense, or rather a whole system of offenses. See the notes on 2 Samuel 11 (note), and 2 Samuel 12 (note).
