Verse 18

Nevertheless, a lad saw them, and told Absalom ,.... Saw them conversing with the girl, and departing for David's army; according to Josephus F15 Antiqu. l. 7. c. 9. sect. 7. , they were some horsemen that saw them about two furlongs or a quarter mile from Jerusalem, and acquainted Absalom with it:

but they went both of them away quickly ; made all the haste they could with their message to David:

and came to a man's house in Bahurim ; where very probably they had been informed David had been, whither he came weary, and had refreshment, 2 Samuel 16:14 ; or rather, perceiving they were discovered and pursued, they turned in hither, the first place they came to, for safety:

which had a well in his court ; which they observed, and was the reason of their turning in:

whither they went down ; to hide themselves from their pursuers, it being dry, as sometimes wells were in the summertime: Josephus says F16 Ibid. , a woman let them down by a rope.
