2 Samuel 17:17 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
"Yea (כּי, profecto), I:advise: let all Israel be gathered round thee from Dan to Beersheba (see at Judges 20:1), numerous as the sand by the sea; and thou thyself go into the war." פניך, thy person, i.e., thou thyself be marching. The plural הלכים is used because of פניך. For בּ הלך, to enter into anything, see 1 Kings 19:4; Isaiah 45:16; Isaiah 46:2. קרב, war, the early translators have confounded with קרב.

Then the boundary goes down to the border of the mountain that overlooks the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, which is at the north end of the Valley of Rephaim. And it then goes down the Valley of Hinnom, south of the shoulder of the Jebusites, and downward to En-rogel.
