I will help (succour) thee.--Samuel, "I will march to succour thee." This verb is often rendered "to save," and the cognate noun, "salvation."

19:1-19 David's wars. - The history is here repeated which we read 2Sa 10. The only safety of sinners consists in submitting to the Lord, seeking peace with him, and becoming his servants. Let us assist each other in a good cause; but let us fear lest, while made instruments of good to others, we should come short of salvation, through unbelief and sin.
