The People's Bible by Joseph Parker - 1 Chronicles 14:1-17

The Divine and the Human 1 Chronicles 14:0 THIS section is a duplicate of 2 Samuel 5:11-25 . The order of chronology has not been particularly observed. It has been thought indeed by some that "the chronicler may have transposed the two accounts, in order to represent the removal of the ark to the new capital in immediate connection with the acquisition of the city.' This chapter treats of two subjects: the first, David's palace-building, and family; and the second, the two victories which he... read more

Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary - 1 Chronicles 14:3-7

On the subject of David's wives, in addition to what was there observed in the same chapter, let me only add, that such things are the shades in the brightest picture of our nature. And if David will multiply wives, they shall produce trouble. Perhaps no man ever suffered more in ungracious, unnatural, and unworthy children. read more

G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible - 1 Chronicles 14:1-17

In this chapter a most interesting reference is made to the long commercial friendship with Hiram which commenced with David and was continued into the reign of Solomon. Here again the chronicler is silent concerning the sin of David. It is stated boldly that he took more wives at Jerusalem, and a list of his sons is given. Among these are the sons of Bathsheba. Two victories over the Philistines are described. In each case David took counsel of God whether he should go up to battle against... read more

Preacher's Complete Homiletical Commentary - 1 Chronicles 14:1-17

CRITICAL NOTES.] This chapter runs parallel with 2 Samuel 5:11-25, and presents a general verbal identity, which is insufficiently represented by the Authorised Version. The only important variations from 2 Samuel 5:0 are in 1 Chronicles 14:4-7; 1 Chronicles 14:12, in the former of which passages the sons of David are given somewhat differently, while in the latter the fact is added that the idols taken from the Philistines were burned [Speak. Com.].1 Chronicles 14:1-2.—David’s house. H.... read more

Chuck Smith Bible Commentary - 1 Chronicles 14:1-17

Chapter 14Now Hiram the king of Tyre sent David down cedars, and workmen [and so forth], to build a palace for David. And while David was in Jerusalem he took more wives: and he had more sons and daughters ( 1 Chronicles 14:1 , 1 Chronicles 14:3 ).And their names are listed there in chapter fourteen.And the Philistines came [against David], spread themselves in the valley of Rephaim. And David inquired of God, saying, Shall I go up against the Philistines? will You deliver them into my hand?... read more

Joseph Sutcliffe

Sutcliffe's Commentary on the Old and New Testaments - 1 Chronicles 14:1-17

1 Chronicles 14:3-7 . David begat more sons and daughters. This list is imperfect, or the sacred writer mentions only the more distinguished ones, or such as were then living. 1 Chronicles 14:15 . A sound of going in the tops of the mulberry-trees. See the note on 2 Samuel 5:24. REFLECTIONS. The congratulations of Hiram, the consequent treaty for the supply of timber and artificers, contracted with that prince, and the two signal victories over the Philistines, as has already been... read more
