What portion

2 Samuel 20:1
And there happened to be there a man of Belial, whose name was Sheba, the son of Bichri, a Benjamite: and he blew a trumpet, and said, We have no part in David, neither have we inheritance in the son of Jesse: every man to his tents, O Israel.

2 Samuel 15:13
And there came a messenger to David, saying, The hearts of the men of Israel are after Absalom.









(16) And when all Israel saw.--Now all Israel had seen. Kings: "And all Israel saw." The chronicler makes a new start. (The word "saw" is wanting in very many Hebrew MSS., and in LXX., Vulg., and Targ., and some Hebrew editions.)

Answered.--Returned the king--scil., a word, which Kings supplies.

Every man to your tents, O Israel.--Literally, A man ('ish) to thy tents, &c. The word "man" is probably spurious, being due to a repetition of the letters of the preceding proper name Jesse (Heb., Yishai or Ishai). Kings, LXX., Vulg. are without it, but Syriac has it.

See to thine own house--i.e., govern Judah, thine own tribe. Vulg., "pasce domum tuam."

Verse 16. - What portion have we in David? (see 2 Samuel 20:1). To your tents, O Israel; i.e. there is nothing more to be done here; all may as well go home. The use, and especially repeated use, of the names, David, Jesse, David, plainly speaks tribe rivalry, if not jealousy.
