2 Samuel 8:1 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

"And Thou hast established to thyself Thy people Israel to be a people unto Thee for ever: and Thou, Jehovah, hast become a God to them." The first clause does not refer merely to the liberation of Israel out of Egypt, or to the conquest of Canaan alone, but to all that the Lord had done for the establishment of Israel as the people of His possession, from the time of Moses till His promise of the eternal continuance of the throne of David. Jehovah had thereby become God to the nation of Israel, i.e., had thereby attested and proved himself to be its God.

To this praise of the acts of the Lord there is attached in 2 Samuel 7:25. the prayer for the fulfilment of His glorious promise. Would Jehovah set up (i.e., carry out) the word which He had spoken to His servant that His name might be great, i.e., be glorified, through its being said, "The Lord of Sabaoth is God over Israel," and "the house of Thy servant will be firm before Thee." The prayer is expressed in the form of confident assurance.

Gath In the parallel passage of Chronicles, we read, `David took Gath and her towns;' and it is probable, that Gath and its districts were called {Metheg-ammah} in David's time; which, being unusual or becoming obsolete, in the time of the author of the Chronicles, led him thus to explain it.
