This chapter treats of David's being anointed king by all Israel,
\\#1Ch 11:1-3\\, which agrees with \\#2Sa 5:1-3\\
\\See Gill on "2Sa 5:1"\\
\\See Gill on "2Sa 5:2"\\
\\See Gill on "2Sa 5:3"\\ and of his
taking Jerusalem from the Jebusites, \\#1Ch 11:4-9\\ the account of
which we have \\#2Sa 5:6-10\\.
\\See Gill on "2Sa 5:6"\\
\\See Gill on "2Sa 5:7"\\
\\See Gill on "2Sa 5:8"\\
\\See Gill on "2Sa 5:9"\\
\\See Gill on "2Sa 5:10"\\
only here we are told, that it was Joab that smote the Jebusites first,
and so was made chief captain according to David's promise; and that
he also repaired the rest of the city David built round about; perhaps
the fortifications demolished in taking it, \\#1Ch 11:6,8\\ or rather,
as others give the sense, he "saved alive" {b} those that remained in
the city, after he had slain the lame and the blind; though a learned {c}
writer conjectures it should be read, "and Joab \^hyhy\^ was made
\^rv\^ the governor of the city"; and the Targum is,

``Joab governed the rest of the city.''

And then follows an account of David's mighty men and worthies,
\\#1Ch 11:10-41\\ of whom see the notes on

than their names.
