Wibble Wednesday: Never be the same (2 Samuel 19–21)

Really trying to keep on schedule. It’s summer, so I’ve got no excuse.

Short snarky summary: David may have won the last civil war, but he alienated most of his friends and unrest is the order of the day thenceforth.

Eventually it all falls apart


Wibble Wednesday: A House Divided (2 Samuel 17–18)

Damn, apparently I’ve flaked for upwards of 2 months. Yargh. It’s been one of those years.

Short snarky summary: Absalom takes bad advice and ends up routed and killed. In a flourish of dramatic irony, it’s his good looks that get him in trouble.

In war, you only get to be wrong once.
