Son: The Jews believed that not only death but all disease was the consequence of sin. "There is no death without sin, nor any chastisement without iniquity;" and that "no diseased person could be healed of his disease till his sins were blotted out."

Verse 26

Abiathar: It appears from the passage referred to here, that Ahimelech was then high priest at Nob; and from other passages, that Abiathar was his son. Various conjectures have been formed in order to solve this difficulty; and some, instead of untying, have cut the knot, by pronouncing it an interpolation. The most probable opinion seems to be, that both father and son had two names, the father being also called Abiathar; and this appears almost certain from 2 Samuel 8:17, 1 Chronicles 18:16, where Ahimelech seems evidently termed Abiathar, while Abiathar is called Ahimelech or Abimelech. - Compare 1 Kings 2:26, 1 Kings 2:27. 1 Samuel 22:20-22, 1 Samuel 23:6, 1 Samuel 23:9, 2 Samuel 8:17, 2 Samuel 15:24, 2 Samuel 15:29, 2 Samuel 15:35, 2 Samuel 20:25, 1 Kings 1:7, 1 Kings 2:22, 1 Kings 2:26, 1 Kings 2:27, 1 Kings 4:4
