And David behaved himself wisely in all his ways
Both in the court and in the camp, in whatsoever service he was employed; or "prospered" F21, as the word also signifies; for, generally speaking, those that behave wisely succeed well; in this he was a type of Christ, ( Isaiah 52:13 ) ; the reason of it follows,
and the Lord [was] with him;
from whom he had his wisdom and success; the Targum is,
``the Word of the Lord was for his help.''
F21 (lykvm) "prospere admodum res gerebat", Vatablus; "secundabatur", Junius & Tremellius, Piscator; so the Targum and Jarchi.
