Verse 14

And Absalom and all the men of Israel said ,.... That is, the elders, who before approved of the counsel of Ahithophel, 2 Samuel 17:4 ,

the counsel of Hushai the Archite is better than the counsel of Ahithophel ; it appeared to them most plausible, and most likely to be attended with success:

for the Lord had appointed to defeat the good counsel of Ahithophel ; for so it was to Absalom and his party the best and wisest that could be given them; but it was the Lord's will it should be defeated, and therefore the minds of Absalom and of the elders of Israel were blinded:

to the intent that the Lord might bring evil upon Absalom ; his person and cause; that his cause might be ruined, and he himself slain in battle; see Proverbs 19:21 .
