These four were born to the giant in Gath
Not to Goliath, for one of them was his brother, but to some giant or another of that place, for which it was famous; they were all of them of the race of the giants; and so the Septuagint version, they were
``the offspring of the giants in Gath, whose family was Repha;''and this Repha, or Arepha, as the Vulgate Latin version, according to Abarbinel, was a woman of the daughters of the giants; the Talmudists
F5 make her to be the same with Orpah, ( Ruth 1:4 ) . These giants, it is highly probable, were the descendants of the Anakim which remained in Gath after they were cut off by Joshua in other places, ( Joshua 11:22 ) ; and fell by the hand of David, and by the hand of his servants;
the first, Ishbibenob, fell by the hand of David assisted by Abishai, and the other three by the persons mentioned.
