2 Samuel 2:6 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The third strophe (2 Samuel 1:27) contains simply a brief aftertone of sorrow, in which the ode does away:

Oh how are the mighty fallen,

The instruments of war perished!

"The instruments of war" are not the weapons; but the expression is a figurative one, referring to the heroes by whom war was carried on (vid., Isaiah 13:5). Luther has adopted this rendering (die Streitbaren).
