SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:20 No lo denunciéis en Gat, no deis las nuevas en las plazas de Ascalón; para que no se alegren las hijas de los filisteos, para que no salten de gozo las hijas de los incircuncisos.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 20. Tell [it] not in Gath , etc.] One of the five principalities of the Philistines, and the chief of them, being raised to a kingdom, and whose king was at the head of the armies of the Philistines that engaged with Saul.
This is not to be understood of a command of David, who could not hinder the victory the Philistines had got over Israel being known at Gath, and talked of with pleasure there, but a wish it had not: publish [it] not in the streets of Ashkelon ; another of the principalities of the Philistines, and the sense the same as before: lest the daughters of the Philistines rejoice, lest the daughters of the uncircumcised triumph ; it being usual in those times and countries for women, young women more especially, to express their joy, on occasion of victories obtained, by singing and dancing, ( Judges 11:34) ( Samuel 18:6,7).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 17-27 - Kasheth, or "the bow," probably was the title of this mournful, funera song. David does not commend Saul for what he was not; and says nothin of his piety or goodness. Jonathan was a dutiful son, Saul a affectionate father, therefore dear to each other. David had reason to say, that Jonathan's love to him was wonderful. Next to the love between Christ and his people, that affection which springs form it produces the strongest friendship. The trouble of the Lord's people and triumphs of his enemies, will always grieve true believers whatever advantages they may obtain by them __________________________________________________________________
