(28) In a good old age.--Genesis 15:15.

Full of days.--From LXX. and Vulg. (?????? ?????? --plenus dierum). Literally, satisfied with days. Syriac, "And he was satisfied with the days of his life." (Comp. 1Chronicles 23:1; Genesis 35:29.)

Riches and honour.--1Chronicles 29:12. Syriac, "And he was great in the riches of the world, and in the honour thereof."

And Solomon his son reigned in his stead.--The regular formula, from 1Kings 11:43 to the end of the history of the kings. . . .

Verse 28. - We learn from 2 Samuel 5:4, 5, that David was thirty years old when he began to reign in Hebron. He must, therefore, have died in his seventy-first year. That this is called here a good old age shows that the length of human life had now greatly subsided. In comparison of all his successors on the thrones of Judah and of Israel, his age was clearly a "good old age?'
