Verse 5

Elishua: 1 Chronicles 3:6, Elishama, 2 Samuel 5:15

Verse 7

Beeliada: Probably Beeliada is a mistake for Eliada, as the LXX, Syriac, and Arabic read here. 2 Samuel 5:16, Eliada

and Eliphalet: 1 Chronicles 3:8, Eliphelet, This variation merely arises from the change of a vowel. Here we have 13 persons mentioned, but only 11 in Samuel; and it is probable that the duplicate Elishama and Eliphelet dying when young, were therefore omitted in the latter.

Verse 15

when thou shalt hear: Some, taking the word bechaim, translated "mulberry trees," as a proper name, render, "when thou shalt hear a sound of going upon the summits of Bechaim;" other understanding rosh, "a top," in the sense of beginning or entrance, read, "when thou hearest a sound of footsteps at the entrance of the grove of mulberry trees;" and others think a rustling among the leaves is intended. The Targumist read, "When thou shalt hear the sound of the angels coming to thy assistance, then go out to battle; for an angel is sent from the presence of God, that he may render thy way prosperous." If there had not been an evident supernatural interference, David might have thought that the ruse de guerre which he had used, was the cause of his victory. Leviticus 26:36, 2 Kings 7:6, 2 Kings 19:7, Acts 2:2
