(32) Call me Zadok.--This sudden flash of the old energy in David, and the clear, terse directions which he gives for carrying out all the necessary parts of the inauguration of Solomon's royalty, striking enough in themselves, are still more striking in contrast with the timidity and despondency with which, when far younger, he had received the news of Absalom's rebellion. For then he felt the coming of God's threatened chastisement; now he knows that this is passed, and that God is on his side.

Verse 32. - And king David said [this prompt and vigorous action shows that David's force of character and mental power were unimpaired], Call me Zadok the priest, and Nathan the prophet, and Benaiah the son of Jehoiada.
