[6.242.11] David, the man after the heart of God, also had two sons whom he loved very much. Although he was pursued by Absalom and he (David) opposed him with all power to defeat him, what premium would he not have paid to him who could bring back his beloved son alive! Salomo was wisdom himself and was always around David; but David's love and inclination was towards Absalom.
[6.242.12] O My beloved, this parable says endlessly much! What joy will David's heart feel, if his lost son could be brought back to him alive!
