Arthur Peake's Commentary on the Bible

2 Samuel 9




2 Samuel 9-10. (J.) These chapters are of the utmost value, both as literature and as history. They seem to be the work either of a contemporary, or of some one who was familiar with the facts through the testimony of contemporaries.

Verses 1-13

2 Samuel 9. David shows Favour to Meri-baal (J).—David, asking as to survivors of the house of Saul, hears of Meri-baal (2 Samuel 4:4*); he bestows upon him Saul's private estates, and gives him the status of a royal prince at his court.
