SEV Biblia, Chapter 30:15 Y le dijo David: Â¿Me llevarás tú a aquel ejército? Y él dijo: Hazme juramento por Dios que no me matarás, ni me entregarás en las manos de mi amo, y yo te llevaré al ejército.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 30:15 Verse 15. Swear unto me] At the conclusion of this verse, the Vulgate, Syriac, and Arabic add, that David swore to him. This is not expressed in the Hebrew, but is necessarily implied.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 15. And David said unto him, canst thou me down to this company ? etc.] That is, show him, or direct him where they were: and he said, swear unto me by God ; the Targum is, by the Word of the Lord; but it is highly probable this man had no notion of Jehovah, and his Word, or of the true God; only that there was a God, and that an oath taken by him was solemn, sacred, and inviolable, and might be trusted to and depended on: that thou wilt neither kill me ; for he found now he was in the hands of those whose city he had been concerned in plundering and burning, and so might fear his life was in danger: nor deliver me into the hands of my master ; who had been a cruel one to him, and therefore would gladly be clear of him; and if he had nothing else against him, his late usage of him was sufficient to raise his resentment of him: and I will bring thee down to this company ; or show him where they were, having heard them say where they would stop, and make merry, and divide their spoil; and perhaps his master might tell him they would be at such a place at such a time, where, if he was better, he might come to them; the Vulgate Latin version adds, “and David swore to him”: which, though not expressed in the original text, was no doubt done by him; and the Syriac and Arabic versions begin ( 1 Samuel 30:16) thus, “when David had sworn to him”.
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.
