Proverbs 21:31

(14) And they set themselves . . . and delivered . . . and slew.--These verbs should be singular, as describing the exploit of Shammah (2Samuel 23:12). After the omission just noticed had become perpetuated in the text, some editor must have altered the words into the plural, supposing that they referred to David and Eleazar (1Chronicles 11:13).

Saved them.--Samuel, "made a great deliverance": transpose one letter, and the Hebrew words are identical. LXX. and Syriac agree with Samuel.

Verse 14. - This, as well as the latter half of the preceding verse, belongs to the account of Shammah the Hararite (2 Samuel 23:11), and in the parallel the verbs are accordingly in the singular number. In that same place Shammah is called the "son of Agee," which probably answers to the "Shage" of the present chapter (ver. 34), where our reading should rather be, "Jonathan the son of Shammah the son of Shage, the Hararite." The word "Hararite" designates, according to Gesenius, "one from the hill-country," i.e. the hill-country of Judah or Ephraim, and would be equivalent with us to such a description as "the mountaineer."
