Verse 1

Hiram. See note on 2 Samuel 5:11 .

Verse 2

the LORD. Hebrew. Jehovah. App-4 .

Verse 3

more wives. Compare 1 Chronicles 3:9 . 2 Samuel 5:13-16 .

Verse 4

children: of both sexes.

Verse 7

Beeliada. In 2 Samuel 5:16 called Eliada, which was a later name, perhaps changed from Beeliada because of the name "Baal", or lord, which, at first innocent, came to be associated with idolatry. See note on 1 Chronicles 8:34 .

Verse 8

seek = search for. Hebrew. bakkesh, especially to seek for blood or life. Compare 2 Samuel 4:11 , "require".

went out against them. 2 Samuel 5:17 says "went down to the hold". But this was earlier; for the later command was "thou shalt bestir thyself", which corresponds with the command "Go up" (1 Chronicles 14:10 ) here, as well as with "thou shalt bestir thyself" of 2 Samuel 5:24 .

Verse 9

Rephaim = Rapha. See note on 1 Chronicles 11:15 .

Verse 10

God. Hebrew. Elohim. App-4 . In 2 Samuel 5:19 it is Jehovah. Here, it is God's power as Creator. In 2 Samuel 5:19 it is Jehovah's faithfulness to David. Both pleas were in David's mind, and the accounts are complementary. Compare them in this narrative. Here, Elohim six times; Jehovah once. In 2 Samuel, Jehovah six times; Elohim not once.

Verse 13

left their gods. Compare 1 Samuel 4:7 .

they were burned with fire. This is supplementary information. In 2 Samuel 5:21 David "took them away": i.e. to burn them, as recorded here.

Gibeon. In 2 Samuel 5:25 , Geba. But both places were close together, and the accounts are independent.

Gazer = Gezer. See note on 1 Kings 9:15-17 .

Verse 17

all nations. Figure of speech Synecdoche (of Genus), App-6 , put for nations in all parts of the world.
