2 Samuel 3:24 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

But before Abner set out to go to David, he had spoken to the elders of Israel (the tribes generally, with the exception of Benjamin see 2 Samuel 3:19 and Judah): "Both yesterday and the day before yesterday (i.e., a long time ago), ye desired to have David as king over you. Now carry out your wish: for Jehovah hath spoken concerning David, Through my servant David will I save my people Israel out of the power of the Philistines and all their enemies." הושׁיע is an evident mistake in writing for אושׁיע, which is found in many MSS, and rendered in all the ancient versions.

Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

What hast Joab and his brother Abishai, David's nephews, had been very faithful and highly useful to him in his distresses; and, from gratitude and natural affection, he had inadvertently permitted them to assume almost as much ascendancy over him as Abner had over the pusillanimous Ishbosheth: he trusted and feared them too much, and allowed them all the importance they claimed; which had emboldened them, especially Joab, to a high degree of presumption.

2 Samuel 3:8,39 Then was Abner very wroth for the words of Ishbosheth, and said, Am I a dog's head...

2 Samuel 19:5-7 And Joab came into the house to the king, and said, You have shamed this day the faces of all your servants...
