Expositor's Bible Commentary - 2 Samuel 22:1-51

CHAPTER XXX.THE SONG OF THANKSGIVING.2 Samuel 22:1-51.SOME of David’s actions are very characteristic of himself; there are other actions quite out of harmony with his character. This psalm of thanksgiving belongs to the former order. It is quite like David; at the conclusion of his military enterprises, to cast his eye gratefully over the whole, and acknowledge the goodness and mercy that had followed him all along. Unlike many, he was as careful to thank God for mercies past and present as to... read more

L. M. Grant's Commentary on the Bible - 2 Samuel 22:1-51

This chapter presents David's song of triumph after God had subdued all his enemies under him. It is almost identical toPsalms 18:1-50; Psalms 18:1-50, though with some variations. Of course faith realizes that God has a wise reason for the differences, though we may find ourselves unable to explain them. Appropriately David begins his song with a number of the wonderful aspects of God's nature and character. Jehovah is his rock, the symbol of unchanging stability. 1 Corinthians 10:4 tells us... read more

James Gray

James Gray's Concise Bible Commentary - 2 Samuel 22:1-51

MINGLED EXPERIENCES THE GRATEFUL RETROSPECT (2 Samuel 22:0 ) The title of this section is that which Spurgeon gives the psalm which constitutes it. The psalm is numbered 18 in the book of Psalms, and will be found to contain variations in the text. A common explanation of these is that David sung it, or caused it to be sung, often, and hence revised it for final use in the tabernacle. The second and forty-ninth verses of the psalm are quoted in the New Testament as the words of Jesus Christ... read more

Joseph Parker

The People's Bible by Joseph Parker - 2 Samuel 22:1-51

Poetry At Life's End 2 Samuel 22:2; 2 Samuel 23:02 Samuel 23:0 THE twenty-second chapter, although marked by quite a number of slight changes, is identical with Psalm xviii. The fifty-first verse shows that this song must have been composed after the visit of Nathan, at which David received the promise of the perpetuity of his kingdom. As this psalm will be treated in its proper place in the psalter we propose to pass over it here, and proceed at once to the twenty-third chapter. In doing so... read more

Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary - 2 Samuel 22:31-46

(31) As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him. (32) For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God? (33) God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect. (34) He maketh my feet like hinds' feet: and setteth me upon my high places. (35) He teacheth my hands to war; so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms. (36) Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy gentleness hath made me... read more

The Popular Commentary by Paul E. Kretzmann - 2 Samuel 22:21-51

Praise and Prophecy v. 21. The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me. The righteousness of the heart is seen in the purity of the acts of his hands, in their abstaining from sin and unrighteousness. v. 22. For I have kept the ways of the Lord, observing the rules of conduct laid down in His Law, and have not wickedly departed from my God, not fallen away from God through wickedness. v. 23. For all His judgments were... read more

G. Campbell Morgan

G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible - 2 Samuel 22:1-51

The character of David is revealed in the two psalms recorded here. In the first of these, found in this chapter, we find the deepest things concerning him. It may be well to note its main divisions, with the definite teaching of each. 1. Verses 2 Samuel 22:2-4. Jehovah is declared to be the Source of all strength. 2. Verses 2 Samuel 22:5-16. All deliverances are wrought directly by Jehovah Himself. 3. Verses 2 Samuel 22:17-25. Deliverance is wrought by Jehovah on the condition of... read more

Peter Pett

Peter Pett's Commentary on the Bible - 2 Samuel 22:1-51

A Psalm About The God Who Delivers, And Of How He Has Delivered (2 Samuel 22:1-51 ). Having revealed by the judgment on the house of Saul that God is a just God who deals severely with sin and judges those who go against His covenant (2 Samuel 21:1-14), and having described the earthly means (the mighty men) by which He had provided for the deliverance of both David and Israel (2 Samuel 21:15-22), the section now focuses in on the God of Deliverance Himself. Its purpose is to make clear that... read more
