Geneva Study BibleGeneva Study Bible

Verse 1

20:1 And it came to pass, that after the year was expired, at the time that kings go out [to battle], Joab led forth the power of the army, and wasted the country of the children of Ammon, and came and besieged {a} Rabbah. But David tarried at Jerusalem. And Joab smote Rabbah, and destroyed it.

(a) Which was the chief city of the Ammonites.

Verse 2

20:2 And David took the crown of their king from off his head, and found it to weigh a {b} talent of gold, and [there were] precious stones in it; and it was set upon David’s head: and he brought also exceeding much spoil out of the city.

(b) Which mounts about the value of seven thousand and seventy crowns, which is about 60 pound weight.

Verse 5

20:5 And there was war again with the Philistines; and Elhanan the son of Jair slew {c} Lahmi the brother of Goliath the Gittite, whose spear staff [was] like a weaver’s beam.

(c) Read 2 Samuel 21:19.

Verse 6

20:6 And yet again there was war at Gath, where was a man of [great] stature, whose fingers and toes [were] four and twenty, {d} six [on each hand], and six [on each foot]: and he also was the son of the giant.

(d) Meaning that he had six apiece on hands and feet.
