SEV Biblia, Chapter 30:26 Y cuando David llegó a Siclag, envió de la presa a los ancianos de Judá, sus amigos, diciendo: He aquí una bendición para vosotros, de la presa de los enemigos del SEÑOR.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 30:26 Verse 26. Unto the elders of Judah] These were the persons among whom he sojourned during his exile, and who had given him shelter and protection. Gratitude required these presents.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 26. And when David came to Ziklag , etc.] Perhaps with an intention to rebuild it, and make it still the place of his residence; and it is possible there might be some houses that escaped flames, and if not, tents might be pitched until the city was rebuilt, and it appears that he continued there some time: he sent of the spoil to the elders of Judah : of that part of it which belonged to himself as a general: [even] to his friends ; such as had been kind to him when he sojourned among them; so that this was a piece of gratitude, as well as of policy in him, to make his way to the throne the easier, he perceiving the time drawing on for the expiration of the kingdom in the family of Saul; and besides, some in those parts he sent of the spoil to might have been sufferers by the Amalekites, so that it was but a point of justice to restore to them what had been taken from them; for they had invaded the south of Judea, and took spoils from thence, ( 1 Samuel 30:14-16); it was to his friends in those parts he sent, not to the inhabitants of Ziph and Keilah, which were places in the tribe of Judah; but these having attempted to betray him, were not entitled to his favours, though they were not the objects of his vengeance: saying, behold, a present for you, of the spoil of the Lord’s enemies ; or a “blessing” f564 , which he sent them with a good will, wishing health and happiness to them; which they might without hesitation receive, seeing it was not the spoil of private enemies, or of what was taken from them in a way of private revenge, but the spoil of the enemies of the Lord, his and their common enemies; nor need they scruple eating and enjoying it, though the spoil of those that cursed the Lord, Abarbinel observes, since this they had with the blessing of the Lord.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 21-31 - What God gives us, he designs we should do good with. In distributin the spoil, David was just and kind. Those are men of Belial indeed, wh delight in putting hardships upon their brethren, and care not who is starved, so that they may be fed to the full. David was generous an kind to all his friends. Those who consider the Lord as the Giver of their abundance, will dispose of it with fairness and liberality __________________________________________________________________
