    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:1

    ¶ Después de esto aconteció, que David hirió a los filisteos, y los humilló; y tomó David a Meteg-ama de mano de los filisteos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Samuel 8:1

    Verse 1.
    David took Metheg-ammah] This is variously translated. The Vulgate has, Tulit David fraenum tributi, David removed the bondage of the tribute, which the Israelities paid to the Philistines. Some think it means a fortress, city, or strong town; but no such place as Metheg- ammah is known. Probably the Vulgate is nearest the truth. The versions are all different. See the following comparison of the principal passages here collated with the parallel place in 1 Chr:- S. 8, 1-David took Methegammah 3. David C. 18, 1-David took Gath and her towns. 3. David S. smote Hadadezer 4. And David took from him C. smote Hadarezer 4. And David took from him S. 1000 and 700 horsemen, and 20, 000 foot.

    C. 1000 chariots, and 7000 horsemen, and 20, 000 foot.

    S. 6. Then David put garrisons in Syria 8. And C. 6. Then David put in Syria 8. And S. from Betah and Berothai cities of Hadadezer. 9.

    C. from Tibhath and Chun cities of Hadarezer. 9.

    S. When Toi heard that David had smitten C. When Tou heard that David had smitten S. Hadadezer 10. Then Toi sent Joram his son C. Hadarezer 10. He sent Hadoram his son S. 12-Syria and Moab 13-Syrians, in the valley C. 11-Edom and Moab 12- Edomites, in the valley S. of salt, 18, 000 17-Ahimelech-and Seraiah C. of salt, 18, 000 16-Abimelech-and Shausha S. was the scribe. 10, 16. Shobach the captain C. was scribe. 19, 16. Shophach the captain S. 17. David passed over Jordan, and came hmalh C. 17. David passed over Jordan and came µhla S. to Helam. 18. David slew 700 C. upon them 18. David slew of the Syrians 7000 S. chariots of the Syrians, and 40, 000 horsemen; C. chariots, and 40, 000 footmen; S. and smote Shobach, &c.

    C. and killed Shophach, &c.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. And after this it came to pass , etc.] After David had rest from his enemies for a time, and after the conversation he had had with Nathan about building the house of God, and after the message sent to him from the Lord by that prophet, forbidding him to build, and David’s prayer to the Lord upon it, the following events happened; and which are recorded to show that David’s rest from his enemies did not last long, and that he had other work to do than to build the house of God: that David smote the Philistines, and subdued them ; these had been long and implacable enemies of Israel; Samson began to weaken them in his days; a war was waged between them and Israel in the times of Samuel and Saul, and the battle sometimes went on one side and sometimes on the other; but now David made an entire conquest of them: before they had used to come into the land of Israel, and there fight with Israel, but now David entered into their land, and took it from them: and David took Methegammah out of the hands of the Philistines ; the name of a province in Palestine, and from the parallel place in ( <131801> Chronicles 18:1), it appears to be Gath, and its adjacent towns; but why that was called the bridle of Ammah, or the bridle of a cubit, as it may be rendered, is not easy to say. The conjecture of Kimchi is, that there was a pool or river of water, so Ammah is thought to signify; and Aquila renders it a water course, which passed through the city, having been brought from without it into it, the communication of which from place to place it may be David cut off, by stopping or turning its stream; but interpreters more generally suppose that Gath was built upon an hill called Ammah, (see 2 Samuel 2:24); thought to be the same with the Amgaris of Pliny though that is sometimes read Angaris, a mountain he places in Palestine; and that it was called Metheg, a bridle, because being a frontier city, and being very strong and powerful, erected into a kingdom, it was a curb and bridle upon the Israelites; but now David taking it out of their hands, opened his way for the more easy subduing the rest of their country: or the word may be rendered Metheg and her mother, that is, Gath, the metropolis, since that and her daughters, or towns, are said to be taken, ( 1 Chronicles 18:1); and Metheg might be one of them.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-8 -
    David subdued the Philistines. They had long been troublesome to Israel. And after the long and frequent struggles the saints have with the powers of darkness, like Israel with the Philistines, the Son of David shall tread them all under foot, and make the saints more tha conquerors. He smote the Moabites, and made them tributaries to Israel Two parts he destroyed, the third part he spared. The line that was to keep alive, though it was but one, is ordered to be a full line. Le the line of mercy be stretched to the utmost. He smote the Syrians. I all these wars David was protected, for this in his psalms he ofte gives glory to God.
