Bible Commentary for 1 Samuel 22:9

Wesley's Notes for 1 Samuel 22:9


22:7 Ye Benjamites - You that are of my own tribe and kindred, from whom David designs to translate the kingdom to another tribe. Will he distribute profits and preferments among you Benjamites, as I have done? Will he not rather prefer those of his own tribe before you?

22:8 That all, &c. - See the nature of jealousy, and its arts of wheedling to extort discoveries of things that are not.

22:10 He enquired - David chargeth him with the sin of lying, #Psal 52:3|, and it is not improbable, that he told many lies not here expressed; and withal, he was guilty of concealing part of the truth, which in this case he was obliged to declare for Ahimelech's just defence, namely, the artifice whereby David circumvented Ahimelech: making him believe, that he was then going upon the king's business, so that the service he did to David, was designed in honour to Saul.

22:11 The priests - Of the house of Eli, which God had threatened to cut off, chap.#2:31|.
