SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:18 Entonces se envistió el espíritu en Amasai, príncipe de treinta, y dijo : Por ti, oh David, y contigo, oh hijo de Isaí. Paz, paz contigo, y paz con tus ayudadores; pues que también tu Dios te ayuda. Y David los recibió, y los puso entre los capitanes de la cuadrilla.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Chronicles 12:18 Verse 18. The spirit came upon Amasai] "The spirit of fortitude clothed Amasai, the chief of the mighty men; and he answered, For thy sake, O David, are we come, that we may be with thee, thou son of Jesse.
Prosperity be to thee by night and by day; and prosperity be to thy helpers; for the Word of the Lord is thy assistant." - T.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 18. Then the spirit came upon Amasai , etc.] Or “clothed” him; a spirit of fortitude, as the Targum, of strength, courage, and presence of mind, with which he was endowed, covered, and clothed as with a garment; this was a sister’s son of David’s, (see 2 Samuel 17:25) who was chief of the captains ; of them that came at this time with him to David; he was afterwards Absalom’s general, and designed to be David’s, but was murdered by Joab: and he said, thine are we, David, and on thy side, thou son of Jesse ; which being spoken in this short and concise manner, as the supplement shows, denotes the vehemency with which he spake, and is expressive of their cordial fidelity to him, and their resolution to abide by him at all events: peace, peace be unto thee, and peace be to thine helpers ; wishing all prosperity, temporal and spiritual, to him and all his confederates and auxiliaries, among whom they reckoned themselves: for thy God helpeth thee ; which they perceived by the remarkable deliverances of him out of the hand of Saul, when in imminent danger; the Targum is, “for the Word of the Lord is for thy help:” then David received them ; into the hold, and admitted them as his friends: and made them the captains of the band ; they brought with them; or in later times, when he came to the throne.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-22 - Here is an account of those who appeared and acted as David's friends while he was persecuted. No difficulties or dangers should keep the sinner from coming to the Savior, nor drive the believer from the pat of duty. Those who break through, and overcome in these attempts, wil find abundant recompence. From the words of Amasai we may learn how to testify our affection and allegiance to the Lord Jesus; his we must be throughly; on his side we must be forward to appear and act. If we ar under the influence of the Spirit, we shall desire to have our lo among them, and to declare ourselves on their side; if in faith an love we embrace the cause of Christ, he will receive, employ, an advance us.
