Barnes' Notes on the Bible

Rather, "he built the outer wall of the city of David on the west of Gihon-in-the-valley."

A representation of a system of things pre-determined in order that the obligations of the Covenant might be discharged; various exhibitions of the Covenant as ordained; and a description of the children of the Covenant as predestinated
