SEV Biblia, Chapter 23:19 El era el más noble de los tres, y el primero de ellos; mas no llegó a los tres primeros .
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 19. Was he not most honourable of three ? etc.] He was; who, besides the exploit here mentioned, did many other things; he went down with David into Saul’s camp, and took away his spear and cruse, which were at his bolster, ( 1 Samuel 26:6-12); he relieved David when in danger from Ishbibenob the giant, ( 2 Samuel 21:16,17); he beat the Edomites, and slew eighteen thousand of them in the valley of salt, ( 1 Chronicles 18:12): therefore he was their captain ; of the other two, or was head over them, took rank before them: howbeit he attained not unto the [first] three ; for fortitude, courage, and warlike exploits, namely, to the Tachmonite, Eleazar, and Shammah.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 8-39 - David once earnestly longed for the water at the well of Bethlehem. I seems to be an instance of weakness. He was thirsty; with the water of that well he had often refreshed himself when a youth, and it wa without due thought that he desired it. Were his valiant men so forwar to expose themselves, upon the least hint of their prince's mind, an so eager to please him, and shall not we long to approve ourselves to our Lord Jesus, by ready compliance with his will, as shown us by his word, Spirit, and providence? But David poured out the water as drink-offering to the Lord. Thus he would cross his own foolish fancy and punish himself for indulging it, and show that he had sobe thoughts to correct his rash ones, and knew how to deny himself. Di David look upon that water as very precious which was got at the hazar of these men's blood, and shall not we much more value those benefit for purchasing which our blessed Saviour shed his blood? Let all bewar of neglecting so great salvation __________________________________________________________________
