2 Samuel 10:8 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Occasion of the war with the Ammonites. - 2 Samuel 10:1. On the expression "it came to pass after this," see the remarks on 2 Samuel 8:1. When Nahash, the king of the Ammonites, died, and Hanun his son reigned in his stead, David thought that he would show him the same kindness that Nahash had formerly shown to him. We are not told in what the love shown to David by Nahash consisted. He had most likely rendered him some assistance during the time of his flight from Saul. Nahash was no doubt the king of the Ammonites mentioned in 1 Samuel 11:1, whom Saul had smitten at Jabesh. David therefore sent an embassy to Hanun, "to comfort him for his father," i.e., to show his sympathy with him on the occasion of his father's death, and at the same time to congratulate him upon his ascent of the throne.
