1 Samuel 20:33 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
But on the second day, the day after the new moon (lit., the morrow after the new moon, the second day: השּׁני is a nominative, and to be joined to ויהי, and not a genitive belonging to החדשׁ), when David was absent from table again, Saul said to Jonathan, "Why is the son of Jesse not come to meat, neither yesterday nor to-day?" Whereupon Jonathan answered, as arranged with David (compare 1 Samuel 20:28 and 1 Samuel 20:29 with 1 Samuel 20:6). "And my brother, he hath commanded me," i.e., ordered me to come. צוּה as in Exodus 6:13, and אחי, the elder brother, who was then at the head of the family, and arranged the sacrificial meal.
