SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:1 Â¶ Después de esto aconteció, que murió el rey de los hijos de Amón; y reinó en lugar suyo Hanún su hijo.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. And it came to pass after this , etc.] After the wars with the Moabites, Syrians, and Edomites, being friendly with the children of Ammon, David sent an embassy to their king, after related; by which it appears what is said concerning the spoils of the children of Ammon, ( Samuel 8:12), is by anticipation; for these spoils were not taken until the following war with them, the occasion of which is here told: that the king of the children of Ammon died ; whose name was Nahash, as is clear from ( 2 Samuel 10:2), and probably might be the same that came against Jabeshgilead, from whom Saul delivered the inhabitants of that place, ( 1 Samuel 11:1); and Hanun his son reigned in his stead ; who, being his son, was heir to his crown, and succeeded him in his kingdom.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-5 - Nahash had been an enemy to Israel, yet had showed kindness to David David therefore resolves gratefully to return it. If a Pharisee give alms in pride, though God will not reward it, yet he that receives the alms ought to return thanks for it. Those who bear ill-will to their neighbours, are resolved not to believe that their neighbours bear an good-will to them. There is nothing so well meant, but it may be il interpreted, and is wont to be so, by men who love nobody but themselves. The best men must not think it strange if they are thu misrepresented. Charity thinketh no evil. According to the usages of those days and countries, Hanun treated David's ambassadors in the mos contemptuous manner. David showed much concern for his servants. Let u learn not to lay unjust reproaches to heart; they will wear off, an turn only to the shame of those who utter or do them; while the reputation wrongfully hurt in a little time grows again, as thes beards did. God will bring forth thy righteousness as the light therefore wait patiently for him, Ps 37:6, 7.
