Treasury of Scripture

And when all the men of Israel that were in the valley saw that they fled, and that Saul and his sons were dead, then they forsook their cities, and fled: and the Philistines came and dwelled in them.

then they

Leviticus 26:31,36
And I will make your cities waste, and bring your sanctuaries unto desolation, and I will not smell the savour of your sweet odours…

Deuteronomy 28:33,43
The fruit of thy land, and all thy labours, shall a nation which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt be only oppressed and crushed alway: …

Judges 6:2
And the hand of Midian prevailed against Israel: and because of the Midianites the children of Israel made them the dens which are in the mountains, and caves, and strong holds.









(7) That were in the valley.--Rather, the plain, in which the main battle was fought--that of Jezreel. Samuel has "that were on the other side of the plain, and on the other side of the Jordan." The curt phrase "who (dwelt) in the plain," may be compared with 1Chronicles 9:2. The people of the surrounding districts are meant; who, when they "saw that they" (viz., Saul's army, "the men of Israel," Samuel) "fled," or had been routed, deserted "their (Samuel, 'the,' perhaps a transposition of letters) cities" which were then occupied by the Philistines.

Dwelt in them.--The pronoun here is masculine, in Samuel, feminine, which is correct.

Verse 7. - In the valley. In place of these words, the parallel (1 Samuel 31:7) has, "On the other side of the valley, and.., on the other side Jordan." We have here a clear instance of the desire of the compiler of Chronicles to compress his narrative, while the fidelity of the parallel narrative is testi-fled in the naturalness of its statements, amounting to this, that, quick as the intelligence or report could reach all those Israelites who were at all within the range of the victorious Philistines, they hastened to vacate their abodes.
