SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:13 Y David dijo a aquel joven que le había traído las nuevas: Â¿De dónde eres tú? Y él respondió: Yo soy hijo de un extranjero, amalecita.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 13. And David said unto the young man that told him, whence [art] thou ? etc.] From what place, or of what people and nation art thou? though Abarbinel thinks it neither respects place nor people, but that David thought he was another man’s servant; so that the sense of the question is, to what man did he belong? and he answered, I [am] the son of a stranger, an Amalekite ; he was not any man’s servant, but the son of a proselyte, of one that was by birth and nation an Amalekite, but proselyted to the Jewish religion; he might know of what nation he originally was, by the account he had given of what passed between him and Saul, ( 2 Samuel 1:8); though the mind of David might so disturbed as not to advert to it; or if he did, he might be willing to have it repeated for confirmation’s sake.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 11-16 - David was sincere in his mourning for Saul; and all with him humble themselves under the hand of God, laid so heavily upon Israel by thi defeat. The man who brought the tidings, David put to death, as murderer of his prince. David herein did not do unjustly; the Amalekit confessed the crime. If he did as he said, he deserved to die for treason; and his lying to David, if indeed it were a lie, proved, a sooner or later that sin will prove, lying against himself. Hereb David showed himself zealous for public justice, without regard to his own private interest.
