SEV Biblia, Chapter 23:5 Â¿No será así mi casa para con Dios? bien que a toda mi salud, y a toda mi voluntad no se hará producir todavía. Mas él ha hecho conmigo pacto perpetuo ordenado en todas las cosas, y será guardado;
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Samuel 23:5 Verse 5. Although my house be not so with God] Instead of k ken, so, read k kun, established; and let the whole verse be considered as an interrogation, including a positive assertion; and the sense will be at once clear and consistent: "for is not my house (family) established with God; because he hath made with me an everlasting covenant, ordered in all, and preserved? For this (He) is all my salvation, and all my desire, although he make it (or him) not to spring up." All is sure relative to my spiritual successor, though he do not as yet appear; the covenant is firm, and it will spring forth in due time. See the observations at the end of the chapter.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 5. Although my house [be] not so with God , etc.] So bright, and flourishing, and prosperous as the government of the just ruler before described; or is not “right” with God, meaning his family, in which great sins were committed, and great disorders and confusions brought into it, as the cases of Amnon, Absalom, and Adonijah showed; or “not firm” or “stable” f380 , through the rebellion of one, the insurrection of another, and the usurpation of a third; yet he believed it would be firm and stable in the Messiah that should spring from him, promised in the everlasting covenant; though the Jewish writers understand this of the firmness and stability of his kingdom and government: “but my house is not so”, etc. like the morning light, which increases by little and little, and like the morning, which sometimes is not cloudy, and sometimes is; sometimes the sun shines clearly, and sometimes not; or like the tender grass, which is sometimes flourishing, and after withers; but so is not my kingdom, it is a perpetual one, given and secured by an everlasting covenant; and such certainly is or will be the kingdom of the Messiah: yet he hath made with me an everlasting covenant, ordered in all [things], and sure ; or, “for he hath made”, etc. the covenant by which the kingdom was settled on David and his seed was a covenant that would continue for ever, and would be kept, “observed”, and “preserved” in all the articles of it, and so be sure to his seed, particularly to the Messiah that should spring from him, in whom it was fulfilled, ( Luke 1:32,33); and the covenant of grace made with David’s antitype, with Christ the head of the church, and the representative of it, and so with all his people in him, is an everlasting one: it was made with Christ from everlasting, as appears from the everlasting love of God, the source and spring of it; the earliness of the divine counsels on which it is formed, and blessings and promises of it, with which it is filled, which were before the world was; and from Christ being set up as the Mediator of it from everlasting: and it will continue to everlasting; it is a covenant that cannot be broken, will never be removed, nor give way to or be succeeded by another: it is “ordered in all things”: to promote and advance the glory of all the three Persons in the Godhead, Father, Son, and Spirit; to secure the persons of the saints, and to provide everything needful for them for time and eternity: and it is “sure”; it stands upon a sure basis, the unchangeable will and favour of God, and is in the hands of Christ, the same today, yesterday, and for ever; its mercies are the sure mercies of David, and its promises are yea and amen in Christ, and are sure to all the seed. Though things may not be with them God-ward, as they desire, and could be wished for; though they may be attended with many sins and infirmities, the temptations of Satan, divine desertions, and various afflictions, and be guilty of many backslidings, yet covenant interest always continues; and so, though in the kingdom and interest of Christ in the world, there are, and may be, many things disagreeable; it may be attended with persecutions, heresies, scandals, etc. yet it shall continue and increase, and spread, and be an everlasting kingdom: for [this is] all my salvation : all depends upon this covenant; the safety of David’s family, and the security of the kingdom in it, and to his seed, till the Messiah came, depended on the covenant made with him respecting that; and the spiritual and eternal salvation of the Lord’s people depends upon the covenant of grace; which was contrived, formed, and settled in it, in which the Saviour is provided, and the persons to share in his salvation are taken into it and secured, with all blessings both of grace and glory: and all [my] desire ; to see it fulfilled; as it is the desire of good men to be led more and more into it, to see their interest in it, to have the blessings and promises of it applied unto them, and to be saved by it, and not by the covenant of works; and there is all that in it that a believer can desire to make him comfortable here, or happy hereafter; and it is what gives him delight and pleasure in all his troubles: it may be supplied he is, as well as “this is”, and be applied to Christ, the ruler over men, described, ( Samuel 23:3,4); with whom the covenant of grace is made, in whom is the salvation of men; he is the author and the only author of it; in whom it is complete and perfect; “all” salvation is in him, and which they can claim as theirs; to whom is “all [their] desire”; and in whom is “all [their] delight”, as it may be rendered; on account of the glory of his person, the fulness of his grace, and his suitableness as a Saviour; whom they desire to know more of, and have more communion with: although he made [it] not to grow ; though there may not be at present any growth of outward prosperity, or of inward grace, or even of the produce of the earth, ( Habakkuk 3:17,18); though the horn of David is not yet made to bud, or his family in growing and flourishing circumstances, or the Messiah, the man, the branch, does not yet shoot forth, though he certainly would; or, “for shall he not bud forth” he shall, ( Jeremiah 23:5 Zechariah 3:8 6:12).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-7 - These words of David are very worthy of regard. Let those who have ha long experience of God's goodness, and the pleasantness of heavenl wisdom, when they come to finish their course, bear their testimony to the truth of the promise. David avows his Divine inspiration, that the Spirit of God spake by him. He, and other holy men, spake and wrote a they were moved by the Holy Ghost. In many things he had his ow neglect and wrong conduct to blame. But David comforted himself tha the Lord had made with him an everlasting covenant. By this he principally intended the covenant of mercy and peace, which the Lor made with him as a sinner, who believed in the promised Saviour, wh embraced the promised blessing, who yielded up himself to the Lord, to be his redeemed servant. Believers shall for ever enjoy covenan blessings; and God the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, shall be for eve glorified in their salvation. Thus pardon, righteousness, grace, an eternal life, are secured as the gift of God through Jesus Christ There is an infinite fulness of grace and all blessings treasured up in Christ, for those who seek his salvation. This covenant was all David' salvation, he so well knew the holy law of God and the extent of his own sinfulness, that he perceived what was needful for his own case in this salvation. It was therefore all his desire. In comparison, all earthly objects lost their attractions; he was willing to give them up or to die and leave them, that he might enjoy full happiness, P 73:24-28. Still the power of evil, and the weakness of his faith, hope and love, were his grief and burden. Doubtless he would have allowe that his own slackness and want of care were the cause; but the hop that he should soon be made perfect in glory, encouraged him in his dying moments.
