Matthew Henry's Complete Commentary - 1 Chronicles 19:6-19

We may see here, 1. How the hearts of sinners that are marked for ruin are hardened to their destruction. The children of Ammon saw that they had made themselves odious to David (1 Chron. 19:6), and then it would have been their wisdom to desire conditions of peace, to humble themselves and offer any satisfaction for the injury they had done him, the rather because they had made themselves not only odious to David, but obnoxious to the justice of God, who is King of nations, and will assert... read more

Bridgeway Bible Commentary - 1 Chronicles 19:1-19

David’s fame (18:1-22:1)Before speaking further of the temple, the writer lists a number of David’s victories in war. These records show how God was strengthening David’s kingdom according to his promise, but they show also why God would not allow David to build the temple. One who had caused so much bloodshed was not a suitable person to build the nation’s sacred place of worship (see 22:7-10).The writer records victories over miscellaneous enemies (18:1-17; see notes on 2 Samuel 8:1-18);... read more

John Dummelow's Commentary on the Bible - 1 Chronicles 19:1-19

David’s Wars with-the Ammonites and the SyriansThis chapter is parallel to 2 Samuel 10:1-19 with some differences in certain names, and a few additions.7. Thirty and two thousand chariots] The reading is probably corrupt: in 2 Samuel 10:6 it is ’thirty two thousand footmen,’ with a thousand more from Maachah (whose forces are not here numbered), no mention being made of chariots.18. Seven thousand.. chariots.. forty thousand footmen] 2 Samuel 10:18 has ’seven hundred chariots and forty thousand... read more

Arno Gaebelein's Annotated Bible - 1 Chronicles 19:1-19

9. The Wars with Ammon, Syria and the Philistines (19-20) CHAPTER 19 1. Hanun’s insult to David’s servants (1 Chronicles 19:1-5 ) 2. Joab’s victory (1 Chronicles 19:6-16 ) 3. David’s victorious campaign (1 Chronicles 19:17-19 ) See annotations on 2 Samuel chapter 10. The occasion of the war with the Ammonites was the insult to the messengers of David whom he had sent to the son of King Nahash. Nahash had died and David sent the messengers to comfort Hanun concerning his father. It gives... read more

James Gray

James Gray's Concise Bible Commentary - 1 Chronicles 19:1-19

DAVID ’S REIGN THE DOWNFALL OF SAUL (1 Chronicles 10:0 ) In reading this chapter with whose general contents we became familiar in 1 Samuel 31:0 , it is important to note the inspired comment at its close (1 Chronicles 10:13-14 ). DAVID’S HEROES (1 Chronicles 11-12) In the history of David in this book, the writer dwells chiefly on its prosperous side, passing over the rest as lightly as possible. His anointing at Hebron (1 Chronicles 11:1-3 ) reveals nothing of what we learned earlier of... read more

Joseph Parker

The People's Bible by Joseph Parker - 1 Chronicles 19:1-19

Gracious Messengers 1 Chronicles 19:0 THE phrase "after this" has no chronological significance. David was moved once more by a fine human sentiment. He remembered that Nahash had been kind to him in the days of his ancient trouble, so when Nahash died David proposed to show kindness unto Hanun his son. David was thus far from being spoiled by his royalty and grandeur. He who could sing so well could always sympathise most deeply. These fine human traits in the character of David endear the... read more

Robert Hawker

Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary - 1 Chronicles 19:6-19

I pass over the historical part of this subject to attend to the spiritual. If sinners, who by their transgressions make themselves odious in the eyes of all lovers of holiness, would seek, by a change of conduct, to conciliate favor, instead of hardening themselves in sin, how blessed would be the change! But evil men, and seducers, (saith an apostle) wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. 2 Timothy 3:13 . read more
