2 Samuel 21:16 Parallel
Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

Ishbi-benob - A corrupt reading. The whole passage should perhaps run thus: "And David waxed faint. So they halted in Gob (as in 2 Samuel 21:18-19). And there was a man (in Gob) which was of the sons of the giant, etc."

Sons of the giant - The "giant" here 2 Samuel 21:18, 2 Samuel 21:20, 2 Samuel 21:22 is "ha-Raphah," whence, the "Rephaim" Genesis 14:5; Deuteronomy 2:11. The sons of Ha-raphah, or Rephaim, are different from the "Nephilim," or Giants Genesis 6:4; Numbers 13:33. The sons of Anak were not strictly Rephaim, but Nephilim.

Three hundred shekels of brass - About eight pounds. Goliath's spear's head weighed "six hundred shekels of iron."

As we have already seen, the Deuteronomic book of Judges in all probability ran into Samuel and ended in ch. xii.; while the story of David, begun in Samuel, embraces the first two chapters of the first book of Kings. The book of Samuel is not very happily named, as much of it is devoted to Saul and the greater part to David; yet it is not altogether inappropriate,
