Coke's Commentary on the Holy Bible

1 Chronicles 20

Verses 1-8


Joab takes the city of Rabbah. The Philistines are three times overcome by David and his servants.

Before Christ 1037.

REFLECTIONS.—While Joab conquered the country of the Ammonites, David stayed at Jerusalem: we learn, with grief, to how bad purpose, 2 Samuel 11:0. Here his crime is passed over. A veil should be drawn ever the sins which are repented of, and they should no more be mentioned to a man's shame.
