SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:23 Y consultando David al SEÑOR, él le respondió: No subas; sino rodéalos, y vendrás a ellos por delante de los morales;
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Samuel 5:23 Verse 23. Fetch a compass behind them] When they may be had, God will not work without using human means. By this he taught David caution, prudence, and dependence on the Divine strength.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 23. And when David inquired of the Lord , etc.] For though he had success before, and got the victory, he would not engage again with them without having the mind and will of God, on whom he knew victory alone depended: he said, thou shalt not go up ; that is, directly, and in a straight line: [but] fetch a compass behind them ; and get to the rear of them, instead of falling upon them in the front: and come upon them over against the mulberry trees : which grew in the valley of Rephaim, and near where the Philistines had pitched.

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 __________________________________________________________________
