Expositor's Bible Commentary - 1 Chronicles 14:1-17

DAVID1. HIS TRIBE AND DYNASTYKING and kingdom were so bound up in ancient life that an ideal for the one implied an ideal for the other: all distinction and glory possessed by either was shared by both. The tribe and kingdom of Judah were exalted by the fame of David and Solomon: but, on the other hand, a specially exalted position is accorded to David in the Old Testament because he is the representative of the people of Jehovah. David himself had been anointed by Divine command to be king of... read more

4. David’s Increase and Blessing CHAPTER 14 1. Hiram (1 Chronicles 14:1-2 ) 2. David’s family (1 Chronicles 14:3-7 ) 3. The Philistines defeated (1 Chronicles 14:8-17 ) The reader is referred to 2 Samuel 5:11-16 for the comment on verses 1-7. Beeliada is called in 2 Samuel 5:16 Eliada. Beeliada was probably changed to Eliada. David’s great victory over the Philistines is also recorded in 2 Samuel 5:17-25 . He inquired of God and being permitted to go, he smote them at Baal-perazim,... read more

James Gray

James Gray's Concise Bible Commentary - 1 Chronicles 14:1-17

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

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 14:8-16

The account of these wars is so exactly represented before in 2 Samuel 5:0 that I refer the Reader to what is there observed upon them. Spiritually considered, and with an eye to Christ, we may derive great improvement from the wars of David. In Jesus, he conquered. So must we. His direction for going forth to the war, was by the sound of the mulberry trees. Our guide is the same, in the movement of the Holy Ghost. His opposition to the Philistines all his days, teacheth us, that the holy war... read more

The Popular Commentary by Paul E. Kretzmann - 1 Chronicles 14:8-17

Defeat of the Philistines v. 8. And when the Philistines heard that David was anointed king over all Israel, in the eighth year of his rule, all the Philistines went up to seek David, to attack and overthrow him and to subdue the country. And David heard of it and went out against them, he prepared to meet the invaders with an armed force. v. 9. And the Philistines came and spread themselves in the Valley of Rephaim, favorably situated some distance west of Jerusalem and permitting the... 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

Joseph Exell

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
