1 Samuel 26:7 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The second betrayal of David by the Ziphites occurred after David had married Abigail at Carmel, and when he had already returned to the desert of Judah. On 1 Samuel 26:1 and 1 Samuel 26:2 compare the explanations of 1 Samuel 23:19 and 1 Samuel 24:3. Instead of "before (in the face of) Jeshimon" (i.e., the wilderness), we find the situation defined more precisely in 1 Samuel 23:19, as "to the right (i.e., on the south) of the wilderness" (Jeshimon).
