    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Samuel 11:26

    She mourned for her husband - The whole of her conduct indicates that she observed the form without feeling the power of sorrow.

    She lost a captain and got a king for her spouse; this must have been deep affliction indeed: and therefore: -

    - Lachrymas non sponte cadentes Effudit;

    gemitusque expressit pectore laeto.

    "She shed reluctant tears,

    and forced out groans from a joyful heart.
