    Definitions for 2 Samuel 13:26

    Let - To hinder or obstruct.

    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Samuel 13:26

    Let my brother Amnon go - He urged this with the more plausibility, because Amnon was the first-born, and presumptive heir to the kingdom; and he had disguised his resentment so well before, that he was not suspected.

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Samuel 13:26

    He mentions Amnon as being the king's first-born. If he could not have the king's company, let him at least have that of the heir apparent, and the king's other sons.
