SEV Biblia, Chapter 23:17 Y le dijo: No temas, que no te hallará la mano de Saúl mi padre, y tú reinarás sobre Israel, y yo seré segundo después de ti; y aun mi padre así lo sabe.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 17. And he said unto him, fear not , etc.] Distrust not the power, providence, and promises of God, nor dread the wrath of Saul, or fear falling into his hands: for the hand of Saul my father shall not find thee ; to lay hold on him, seize him, and do him any hurt: and thou shalt be king over Israel ; meaning after the death of his father; which he knew either by some special revelation made to him; or rather by being informed he had been anointed by Samuel, and which he had either from Samuel or from David himself; and this he most firmly believed, though David was now in so low a condition: and I shall be next unto thee ; not succeed him in the kingdom; but if living when he came to the throne, he should be the second man in civil affairs, as he now was, and that he should be content with: and that also Saul my father knoweth ; having knowledge of the anointing of David by Samuel; or he might, and did conclude this from various circumstances, that David was his neighbour Samuel had told him of, God had given his kingdom to, ( 1 Samuel 15:28).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 14-18 - David made no attempt against Saul; he kept God's way, waited God' time, and was content to secure himself in woods and wildernesses. Le it make us think the worse of this world, which often gives such ba treatment to its best men: let it make us long for that kingdom wher goodness shall for ever be in glory, and holiness in honour. We fin Jonathan comforting David. As a pious friend, he directed him to God the Foundation of his comfort. As a self-denying friend, he take pleasure in the prospect of David's advancement to the throne. As constant friend, he renewed his friendship with him. Our covenant with God should be often renewed, and therein our communion with him kep up. If the converse of one friend, at one meeting, gives comfort an strengthens our hearts, what may not be expected from the continua supports and powerful love of the Saviour of sinners, the covenante Friend of believers!
