Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for 2 Samuel 5:22


5:22 And spread themselves - The expression intimates, that they were very numerous, and made a very formidable appearance. So we read, #Rev 20:9|, of the church's enemies going up on the breadth of the earth. But the wider they spread themselves, the fairer mark they are for God's arrows.
