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

Full of days.—From LXX. and Vulg. (πλήρης ἡμερῶνplenus 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.

1 Chronicles 29:28. Full of days — Fully satisfied with the days which God had given him, having had the happiness of seeing his beloved son Solomon settled in his throne. Riches and honour — He had enough of this world, and of the riches and honour of it; and he knew when he had enough. He was satisfied, and very willing to go to a better place.

This great assembly joined with David in adoring God. Whoever is the mouth of the congregation, those only have the benefit who join him, not by bowing down the head, so much as by lifting up the soul. Solomon sat on the throne of the Lord. Solomon's kingdom typified the kingdom of the Messiah, whose throne is the throne of the Lord.See 1 Kings 1:1 note. 1Ch 29:26-30. His Reign and Death.

26. Thus David … reigned—(See 1Ki 2:11).

Full of days; fully satisfied with the days which God had given him, having had the happiness to see his beloved Solomon settled in his throne, being now weary of this life, and desiring to be with God.

And he died in a good old age,.... Being seventy years of age:

full of days, riches, and honour; had as much of either of them as he could wish for; and having enough, he sought after, and was taken to the possession of, eternal life, durable riches, and honours, and glory, that fade not away:

and Solomon his son reigned in his stead; in full power and authority.

And he died in a good old age, full of days, riches, and honor: and Solomon his son reigned in his stead.
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?' 1 Chronicles 29:28On וכבוד עשׁר cf. 1 Kings 3:13; 2 Chronicles 17:5.
