Verse 21

And it came to pass after they were departed ,.... The servants of Absalom:

that they came up out of the well ; the sons of the priests, being informed by the woman that they were gone; Josephus F19 Antiqu. l. 7. c. 9. sect. 7. Hudson. not. in ib. says they were drawn up by the woman with a rope:

and went and told King David ; who was now in the plain of the wilderness, perhaps near Jericho, and not a great way from Jordan, to whom they related the whole of their message:

and said unto David ; as they were directed:

arise, and pass quickly over the water ; the river Jordan:

for thus hath Ahithophel counselled against you ; to come with twelve thousand men, and fall upon him that very night; and it was not certain his counsel would be rejected; and therefore it was advisable for David to prepare against the worst.
