SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:4 Y David le dijo: Â¿Qué ha acontecido? Te ruego que me lo digas. Y él respondió: El pueblo huyó de la batalla, y también muchos del pueblo cayeron y son muertos; también Saúl y Jonatán su hijo murieron.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 4. And David said unto him, how went the matter? I pray thee, tell me , etc.] That is, how went the battle? on which side the victory? and he answered, that the people are fled from the battle ; meaning the people of Israel, they had given way, and turned their backs upon their enemies, and were fled: and many of the people also are fallen and dead ; fell by the sword in the pursuit of them, and were not only wounded, but were slain, and these great numbers of them: and Saul and Jonathan his son are dead also ; which are mentioned last, because they fell some of the last; and this part of the account is reserved by the messenger to the last, because it was the article of the greatest importance; the death of these two persons, the one the enemy, and the other the friend of David, and the death of both made way for his accession to the throne.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-10 - The blow which opened David's way to the throne was given about the time he had been sorely distressed. Those who commit their concerns to the Lord, will quietly abide his will. It shows that he desired no Saul's death, and he was not impatient to come to the throne.
