2 Samuel 10 Bible Commentary

John Darby’s Synopsis

(Read all of 2 Samuel 10)
Grace despised followed by judgment

Chapter 10, the details of which we pass over, sets before us the general principle of the king's rule in Zion. When grace is despised by those to whom it is manifested, the king's judgment follows. Opposition and rebellion only serve to establish his authority in the very place where resistance is attempted. It is useless to strive against the power of God's chosen king.
