Discussion for 1 Chronicles 19

  • Insight 777
    Verse 3...I think the word comforter is the same as the word ambassador used today. The plural includes the ambassadors aides. The people were suspicious of the reasons for the ambassador being there and viewed nefarious reasons as probable. They preferred to view the ambassadors presence as an act of war instead of an act of peace. The princes of children of Ammon are the military advisors that want war at any cost and are not willing to settle anything peacefully.
