And he smote his enemies in the hinder parts: he put them to a perpetual reproach.

and he

1 Samuel 5:6
But the hand of the LORD was heavy upon them of Ashdod, and he destroyed them, and smote them with emerods, even Ashdod and the coasts thereof.

1 Samuel 6:4

Jeremiah 23:40
And I will bring an everlasting reproach upon you, and a perpetual shame, which shall not be forgotten.









(66) He smote.--Possibly an allusion to 1Samuel 5:9, or else to the repeated defeats of the Philistines under Saul and David.

Verse 66. - And he smote his enemies in the hinder parts; rather, backward, so that they fled before him (comp. Psalm 40:14; Psalm 70:2, etc.). There is no allusion to 1 Samuel 5:6-12. The reference is rather to the many victories of Israel over the Philistines, which began under Samuel (1 Samuel 7:10), and continued under Saul and David. He put them to a perpetual reproach. Covered them, that is, with shame and disgrace. The shame culminated, perhaps, in David's victory over Goliath (1 Samuel 17:40-51).
