    1 By occasion of the quarrel, Sheba makes a party in Israel. 3 David's ten concubines are put in confinement for life. 4 Amasa, made captain over Judah, is slain by Joab. 14 Joab pursues Sheba unto Abel. 16 A wise woman saves the city by Sheba's head. 23 David's officers. VERSE 1 - And there. * 2Sa 19:41-43 Ps 34:19 - a man. * 2Sa 23:6 De 13:13 Jud 19:22 1Sa 2:12; 30:22 Ps 17:13 Pr 26:21 * Hab 1:12,13 - he blew. * 2Sa 15:10 Jud 3:27 Pr 24:21,22; 25:8 - We have. * 2Sa 19:43 1Ki 12:16 2Ch 10:6 Lu 19:14,27 VERSE 2 - every man. * 2Sa 19:41 Ps 62:9; 118:8-10 Pr 17:14 - the men. * Joh 6:66-68 Ac 11:23 - from Jordan. * 2Sa 19:15,40,41 2Ch 10:17 VERSE 3 - ten women. * 2Sa 15:16; 16:21,22 - and put. The confinement and retired maintenance of these women was the only measure which in justice and prudence could be adopted. In China, when an emperor dies, all his women are removed to an edifice called the palace of chastity, situated within the palace, in which they are shut up for the remainder of their lives. - ward. Heb. an house of ward. * Ge 40:3 - shut. Heb. bound. living in widowhood. Heb. in widowhood of life. VERSE 4 - Amasa. * 2Sa 17:25; 19:13 1Ch 2:17 - Assemble. Heb. Call. VERSE 5 - So Amasa. * 2Sa 19:13 - tarried. * 1Sa 13:8 VERSE 6 - Abishai. * 2Sa 2:18; 3:30,39; 10:9,10,14; 18:2,12; 21:17; 23:18 1Sa 26:6 * 1Ch 11:20; 18:12 - do us. * 2Sa 19:7 - thy lord's. * 2Sa 11:11 1Ki 1:33 - escape us. Heb. deliver himself from our eyes. VERSE 7 * :23; 8:16,18; 15:18; 23:22,23 1Ki 1:38,44 VERSE 8 - in Gibeon. * 2Sa 2:13; 3:30 - Amasa. * :4,5 VERSE 9 - Art thou. * Ps 55:21 Pr 26:24-26 Mic 7:2 - took Amasa. Thevenot says, that among the Turks it is a great afront to take one by the beard, unless it be to kiss him, in which case they often do it. D'Arvieux, describing an assembly of Arab emirs at an entertainment, says, "After the usual civilities, caresses, kissings of the beard, and of the hand, which every one gave and received according to his rank and dignity, they sat down upon mats." The doing this by the Arab emirs corresponds with the conduct of Joab, and illustrates this horrid assassination. - to kiss him. * Mt 26:48,49 Lu 22:47,48 VERSE 10 - in Joab's. * :9 Jud 3:21 1Ch 12:2 - he smote. * 2Sa 2:23; 3:27 Ge 4:8 1Ki 2:5,6,31-34 - and shed. * Ac 1:18,19 - struck him not again.

Or rather, probably, Abel of Beth-Maachah, as in the next verse. It appears, from Joab having marched "through all the tribes of Israel," to have been situated in the northern confines of the land of Israel, and in the half tribe of Manasseh, east of Jordan, as that was the situation of Maachah, to which it belonged. This agrees with the situation of the Abela which Eusebius and Jerome place between Paneas, or Caesarea Philippi, and Damascus. Josephus says it was a fortified city, and a metropolis of the Israelites; and also that it belonged to the ten tribes, having been taken from the king of Damascus. * 1Ki 15:20 2Ki 15:29 2Ch 16:4 - Berites. * Jos 18:25 - Beeroth. VERSE 15 - cast up. * 2Ki 19:32 Jer 32:24; 33:4 Lu 19:43 - a bank.

The sides were walled in with bricks or stones, or secured with strong rafters; the fore part only, being by degrees to be moved near the walls, remained bare." - it stood in the trench. or, it stood against the outmost wall. battered, etc. Heb. marred to throw down. VERSE 16 * 2Sa 14:2 1Sa 25:3,32,33 Ec 9:14-18 VERSE 17 - Hear the words. * 2Sa 14:12 1Sa 25:24 VERSE 18 - They were wont, etc. or, They plainly spake in the beginning, saying, Surely they will ask of Abel, and so make an end. * De 20:10,11 VERSE 19 - peaceable. * Ge 18:23 Ro 13:3,4 1Ti 2:2 - a mother. * Jud 5:7 Eze 16:45-49 - swallow. * 2Sa 17:16 Nu 16:32; 26:10 Ps 124:3 Jer 51:34,44 La 2:2,5,16 * 1Co 15:54 2Co 5:4 - the inheritance. * 2Sa 21:3 Ex 19:5,6 De 32:9 1Sa 26:19 VERSE 20 - Far be it. * 2Sa 23:17 Job 21:16; 22:18 - that I should. * :10 Pr 28:13 Jer 17:9 Lu 10:29 VERSE 21 - a man. * :1 Jud 2:9; 7:24 2Ki 5:22 Jer 4:15; 50:19 - by name.

Jairite. * Jud 10:4,5 - chief ruler. or, prince. * 2Sa 8:18 Ge 41:43,45 Ex 2:14,16 The Hebrew is {cohen ledawid,} which might be rendered, a priest of David; and so the Septuagint, Vulgate, Syriac, and Arabic.
