SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:1 Â¶ David, pues, reconoció el pueblo que tenía consigo, y puso sobre ellos capitanes de millares y de centenas.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Samuel 18:1 Verse 1. And set captains of thousands] By this time David's small company was greatly recruited; but what its number was we cannot tell.
Josephus says it amounted to four thousand men. Others have supposed that they amounted to ten thousand; for thus they understand a clause in ver. 3, which they think should be read, We are now ten thousand strong.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. And David numbered the people that [were] with him , etc.] Which Josephus says were four thousand; but one would think there should be more by what follows: and set captains of thousands and captains of hundreds over them ; he divided his army into companies, which consisted some of a thousand and others of a hundred; over each of which he set captains, to lead them on, direct, and command them in battle.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-8 - How does David render good for evil! Absalom would have only Davi smitten; David would have only Absalom spared. This seems to be resemblance of man's wickedness towards God, and God's mercy to man, of which it is hard to say which is most amazing. Now the Israelites se what it is to take counsel against the Lord and his anointed.
