SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:20 Y vino David a Baal-perazim, y allí los venció David, y dijo: Rompió el SEÑOR mis enemigos delante de mí, como quien rompe aguas. Y por esto llamó el nombre de aquel lugar Baal-perazim (el llano de las divisiones o de las roturas ).
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Samuel 5:20 Verse 20. The Lord hath broken forth] He very properly attributes the victory of Jehovah, without whose strength and counsel he could have done nothing.
Baal-perazim] The plain or chief of breaches, because of the breach which God made in the Philistine army; and thus he commemorated the interference of the Lord.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 20. And David came to Baalperazim , etc.] As it was after called, for here it has its name by anticipation, and whither the Philistines were come from the valley of Rephaim; (see 1 Chronicles 14:11); which was at no great distance, the one being the hill, to which the other was the valley, computed to be about three miles from Jerusalem, in the way to Bethlehem f97 , between which places were two hours’ travels f98 : and David smote them there ; there a battle was fought, in which David had the victory assured him: and said, the Lord hath broken forth upon mine enemies before me, as the breach of waters ; as when waters, through their mighty force, break down the banks of rivers, and carry all before them; or as one breaks an earthen vessel full of water, so the Targum on ( 1 Chronicles 14:11). therefore he called the name of the place Baalperazim ; which signifies “the master of breaches”, where the Philistines were broke in upon, and broken to pieces, of which God was the author, and which gave David the mastery over his enemies; the Targum renders it “the plain of breaches”, and seems to take it to be the same with the valley of Rephaim; (see Samuel 5:22).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 17-25 - The Philistines considered not that David had the presence of God with him, which Saul had forfeited and lost. The kingdom of the Messiah, a soon as it was set up in the world, was thus attacked by the powers of darkness. The heathen raged, and the kings of the earth set themselve to oppose it; but all in vain, Ps 2:1, &c. The destruction will turn as this did, upon Satan's own kingdom. David owns dependence on God for victory; and refers himself to the good pleasure of God, Wilt thou d it? The assurance God has given us of victory over our spiritual enemies, should encourage us in our spiritual conflicts. David waite till God moved; he stirred then, but not till then. He was trained u in dependence on God and his providence. God performed his promise, an David failed not to improve his advantages. When the kingdom of the Messiah was to be set up, the apostles, who were to beat down the devil's kingdom, must not attempt any thing till they received the promise of the Spirit; who came with a sound from heaven, as of rushing, mighty wind, Ac 2:2 __________________________________________________________________
