2 Samuel 19:14 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Nevertheless David was obliged to yield to his representations. "The king rose up, and sat in the gate, and ... all the people came before the king," i.e., the troops marched before the king, who (as we may supply from the context) manifested his good-will in both looks and words.

This sentence forms the transition to the account which follows.
