(14) I will kindle a fire in the forest thereof.--The "forest" thus referred to may be either literally the woods, then covering a larger surface than in later times, at Kirjath-jearim (Psalm 132:6; 1Samuel 7:2), or the wood of the lone wilderness of Ziph (1Samuel 23:15), or the valley of Rephaim (2Samuel 5:22), or, figuratively, the royal palace, which, from its cedar columns (1Kings 7:2; 1Kings 10:21), was known as "the house of the forest of Lebanon." (Comp. the comparison of the king's house to "Gilead and the head of Lebanon," in Jeremiah 22:6.) The desolation wrought by an invading army such as that of Nebuchadnezzar, cutting down the "choice fir-trees of Lebanon and the forest of Carmel" (2Kings 19:23), showed itself in this destruction of forests in its most conspicuous form, and explains the comparative scarcity of trees in modern Palestine. So Assur-nasirpal narrates, in the history of his conquests, how he had cut down the pine, box, cypress, and other trees of the forest (Records of the Past, iii. p. 74).

Verse 14. - In the forest thereof; i.e. in the forest of houses (comp. Jeremiah 22:6, 7).



21:11-14 The wickedness of the king and his family was the worse because of their relation to David. They were urged to act with justice, at once, lest the Lord's anger should be unquenchable. If God be for us, who can be against us? But if he be against us, who can do any thing for us?
