2 Samuel 21:8 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

In consequence of this answer from God, which merely indicated in a general manner the cause of the visitation that had come upon the land, David sent for the Gibeonites to ask them concerning the wrong that had been done them by Saul. But before the historian communicates their answer, he introduces an explanation respecting the Gibeonites, to the effect that they were not Israelites, but remnants of the Amorites, to whom Joshua had promised on oath that their lives should be preserved (vid., Joshua 9:3.). They are called Hivites in the book of Joshua (Joshua 9:7); whereas here they are designated Amorites, according to the more general name which is frequently used as comprehending all the tribes of Canaan (see at Genesis 10:16 and Genesis 15:16). David said to the Gibeonites, "What shall I do for you, and wherewith shall I expiate" (sc., the wrong done you), "that ye may bless the inheritance (i.e., the nation) of Jehovah?" On the use of the imperative וּברכוּ to denote the certain consequences, see Ewald, 347.

Rizpah

2 Samuel 3:7 And Saul had a concubine, whose name was Rizpah, the daughter of Aiah: and Ishbosheth said to Abner...

and the five sons This Adriel did not marry Michal, Saul's younger daughter, but Merab

1 Samuel 18:19 But it came to pass at the time when Merab Saul's daughter should have been given to David...

Michael being married to David, and afterwards to Phaltiel; though it is here said {she bore} (yaledah,) not {brought up}, as falsely rendered, five sons to Adriel. Two of Dr. Kennicott's MSS., however, have {Merab}, instead of {Michal}; the Syriac and Arabic have {Nadab}; and the Cahalee renders the passage thus: `And the five sons of {Merab} which Michal the daughter of Saul brought up, which she brought up, which she brought forth to Adriel the son of Barzillai.'

Michal. or, Michal's sister

1 Samuel 18:19 But it came to pass at the time when Merab Saul's daughter should have been given to David...

brought up for [heb] bare to
