SEV Biblia, Chapter 30:13 Y le dijo David: Â¿De quién eres tú? Â¿Y de dónde eres? Y respondió el joven egipcio: Yo soy siervo de un amalecita, y me dejó mi amo hoy hace tres días, porque estaba enfermo;
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 30:13 Verse 13. My master left me, because three days agone I fell sick.] This was very inhuman: though they had booty enough, and no doubt asses sufficient to carry the invalids, yet they left this poor man to perish; and God visited it upon them, as he made this very person the means of their destruction, by the information which he was enabled to give to David and his men.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 13. And David said unto him, to whom [belongest] thou ? etc.] To what country or people? and to whom among them? and whence [art] thou ? of what nation? where wast thou born? what countryman art thou? for his being called an Egyptian before seems to be by anticipation, unless it was guessed at by his habit; for until he had eaten and drank he could not speak, and so could not be known by his speech: for he said, I [am] a young man of Egypt ; that was the country he belonged to, and came from; he was an Egyptian by birth: servant to an Amalekite ; one of those that had invaded the country, and burnt Ziklag, as it follows: and my master left me, because three days agone I fell sick ; which was very barbarous and cruel to leave him at all, when they had camels with them, ( 1 Samuel 30:17); and no doubt carriages for their arms, provision, and spoil, and men; and more so to leave him without anybody with him to take care of him, and without any food, when he capable of eating any; but so it was ordered by the providence of God, that should be left to be the instrument of the just ruin of his master, and of the whole troop.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 7-15 - If in all our ways, even when, as in this case, there can be no doub they are just, we acknowledge God, we may expect that he will direc our steps, as he did those of David. David, in tenderness to his men would by no means urge them beyond their strength. The Son of Davi thus considers the frames of his followers, who are not all alik strong and vigorous in their spiritual pursuits and conflicts; but where we are weak, there he is kind; nay more, there he is strong, 2C 12:9, 10. A poor Egyptian lad, scarcely alive, is made the means of great deal of good to David. Justly did Providence make this poor servant, who was basely used by his master, an instrument in the destruction of the Amalekites; for God hears the cry of the oppressed Those are unworthy the name of true Israelites, who shut up their compassion from persons in distress. We should neither do an injury no deny a kindness to any man; some time or other it may be in the powe of the lowest to return a kindness or an injury.
