Treasury of Scripture

they likewise

Leviticus 26:7
And ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword.

Romans 8:31
What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?









(15) And when the children of Amnion saw.--The Hebrew construction is quite different from that of 1Chronicles 19:6. Render, Now the sons of Ammon had seen that Aram was routed.

They likewise.--An explanatory addition to the text, as read in Samuel. So also "his brother."

Then Joab came . . .--Abridged. (Comp. Samuel.)

Verse 15. - Then Joab came to Jerusalem. This is equivalent to saying that, for what he deemed sufficient reasons, Joab did not stay to besiege the Ammonites in the city, within the wails of which they had taken refuge, nor to pursue the Syrians. Hence we find these latter soon made bold to rally and to get additional aid.
