2 Samuel 17:29 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

It is still further stated in conclusion, that when Ahithophel saw that his advice was not carried out, he saddled his ass and returned to his home, and there set his house in order and hanged himself, because he could foresee that Absalom would lose his cause through not taking his advice, and it would then be all over with himself. Thus was David's prayer (2 Samuel 15:31) fulfilled.
