1 Samuel 25:16 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Nabal refused the petitioners in the most churlish manner: "Who is David? who the son of Jesse?" i.e., what have I to do with David? "There by many servants now-a-days who tear away every one from his master." Thus, in order to justify his own covetousness, he set down David as a vagrant who had run away from his master.
