    Barnes' Notes on 2 Samuel 17:7

    At this time - Rather, "The counsel which Ahithophel has given this time is not good." He contrasts it with that given before 2 Samuel 16:21, which was good. This gave an appearance of candour to his conduct, and so gave weight to his dissent. Observe the working of David's prayer 2 Samuel 15:31.
