Bible Commentary for 1 Chronicles 21:2

Wesley's Notes for 1 Chronicles 21:2


21:1 Satan stood - Before the Lord and his tribunal to accuse Davidand Israel, and to beg God's permission to tempt David.Standing is the accusers posture before men's tribunals; andconsequently the holy scripture (which useth to speak of the things ofGod, after the manner of men, to bring them down to our capacities)elsewhere represent Satan in this posture.

21:3 Why, &c. - Or, why should this be a cause of trespass, or anoccasion of punishment to Israel? God commonly punishes the peoplefor the sins of their rulers, because they are for the most part guiltyof their sins in one kind or other; or at least God takes this occasionto punish people for all their sins.
