2Samuel 7:1-3 And it came to pass, when the king.(the king here was David).sat in his house and the LORD had given him rest round about from all his enemies that the king said unto Nathan the prophet.(what is a prophet?), See now, I dwell in an house of cedar, but the ark of God dwells within curtains. And Nathan said to the king, Go, do all that is in thine heart, for the LORD is with you.

2Samuel 7:4 And it came to pass that night, that the word of the LORD came unto Nathan, saying,

2Samuel 7:5,6 Go and tell my servant David, Thus saith the LORD, Shalt thou build me an house for me to dwell in? Whereas I have not dwelt in any house since the time that I brought up the children of Israel out of Egypt, even to this day, but have walked in a tent and in a tabernacle.

2Samuel 7:7 In all the places wherein I have walked with all the children of Israel spake I a word with any of the tribes of Israel, whom I commanded to feed my people Israel, saying, Why build ye not me an house of cedar?

2Samuel 7:8,9 Now therefore so shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote.(penning the sheep), from following the sheep, to be ruler over my people, over Israel, And I was with thee whithersoever you went and have cut off all your enemies out of your sight and have made you a great name like unto the name of the great men that are in the earth.

2Samuel 7:10,11 Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own and move no more. Neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime and as since the time that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel and have caused thee to rest from all thine enemies. Also the LORD telleth thee that he will make thee an house. 

2Samuel 7:12,13 And when your days be fulfilled and you sleep with your fathers, I will set up your seed after you, which proceed out of your bowels and I will establish his kingdom. He shall build an house for my name and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever..(a prophecy about the endless rule of Christ:.Isaiah 9:7)

2Samuel 7:14 I will be his father and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men and with the stripes of the children of men,

2Samuel 7:15 But my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before you.

2Samuel 7:16 And your house and your kingdom shall be established forever before you.(whose the person this was to happen to? see verses 5 & 6 just above). Your throne shall be established forever.

2Samuel 7:17 According to all these words and according to all this vision, so did Nathan.(who was Nathan? see verses 1-3 at top).speak unto David.

2Samuel 7:18 Then went king David in and sat before the LORD and he said, Who am I, O Lord GOD? and what is my house, that thou hast brought me hitherto?

2Samuel 7:22 Wherefore you art great O LORD God. For there is none like you neither is there any God beside you, according to all that we have heard with our ears.

2Samuel 7:23  And what one nation in the earth is like thy people, even like Israel, whom God went to redeem for a people to himself and to make him a name and to do for you great things and terrible.(original 'wondrous'; what were some of these things? driving out nations that may influence them to leave the true God:.Exodus 34:10; Sun goes backward:.2Kings 20:8-11; huge stones fall from the sky to halt an army and Sun & moon stand still:.Joshua 10:6-14; walls of Jericho:.Joshua 6:1-27; Jordan drys up and they walk on dry land:.Joshua 3:5-17), for your land, before your people, which you redeemed to yourself from Egypt, from the nations and their gods?

2Samuel 8:1-13 And after this it came to pass, that David smote the Philistines and subdued them and David took Methegammah out of the hand of the Philistines. And he smote Moab and measured them with a line, casting them down to the ground, even with two lines measured he to put to death and with one full line to keep alive. And so the Moabites became David's servants and brought gifts. David smote also Hadadezer, the son of Rehob, king of Zobah, as he went to recover his border at the river Euphrates. And David took from him a thousand chariots and seven hundred horsemen.(translation error; should have been 'seven thousand':.1Chronicles 18:4).and twenty thousand footmen and David houghed.(David cut the reins leading from the chariot to the horses;.Adam's Clarke's Commentary:."...and David disjointed all the chariots").all the chariot horses.(word 'horses' not in original, instead means, all the chariots), but reserved of them for an hundred chariots. And when the Syrians of Damascus came to succour Hadadezer king of Zobah, David slew of the Syrians two and twenty thousand men. Then David put garrisons in Syria of Damascus and the Syrians became servants to David and brought gifts. And the LORD preserved David whithersoever he went. And David took the shields of gold that were on the servants of Hadadezer and brought them to Jerusalem. And from Betah and from Berothai, cities of Hadadezer, king David took exceeding much brass. When Toi king of Hamath heard that David had smitten all the host of Hadadezer, then Toi sent Joram his son unto king David, to salute him and to bless him, because he had fought against Hadadezer and smitten him, for Hadadezer had wars with Toi. And Joram brought with him vessels of silver and vessels of gold and vessels of brass, which also king David did dedicate unto the LORD, with the silver and gold that he had dedicated of all nations which he subdued; of Syria and of Moab and of the children of Ammon and of the Philistines and of Amalek and of the spoil of Hadadezer, son of Rehob, king of Zobah. And David gat him a name when he returned from smiting of the Syrians in the valley of salt, being eighteen thousand men.

2Samuel 8:14 And he put garrisons in Edom. Throughout all Edom put he garrisons and all they of Edom became David's servants. And the LORD preserved David whithersoever he went.

2Samuel 8:15 And David.reigned over all Israel and David executed judgment and justice unto all his people.

2Samuel 8:16 And Joab the son of Zeruiah was over the host and Jehoshaphat the son of Ahilud was recorder.

2Samuel 8:17 And Zadok the son of Ahitub and Ahimelech the son of Abiathar, were the priests and Seraiah was the scribe.

2Samuel 8:18 And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada was over both the Cherethites and the Pelethites and David's sons were chief rulers. 

2Samuel 9:1-13 And David said, Is there yet any that is left of the house of Saul, that I may show him kindness for Jonathan's sake? And there was of the house of Saul a servant whose name was Ziba. And when they had called him unto David, the king said unto him, Art thou Ziba? And he said, Thy servant is he. And the king said, Is there not yet any of the house of Saul, that I may show the kindness of God unto him? And Ziba said unto the king, Jonathan has yet a son, which is lame on his feet. And the king said unto him, Where is he? And Ziba said unto the king, Behold, he is in the house of Machir, the son of Ammiel, in Lodebar. Then king David sent and fetched him out of the house of Machir, the son of Ammiel, from Lodebar. Now when Mephibosheth, the son of Jonathan, the son of Saul, was come unto David, he fell on his face and did reverence. And David said, Mephibosheth. And he answered, Behold thy servant! And David said unto him, Fear no, for I will surely show you kindness for Jonathan thy father's sake and will restore all the land of Saul thy father unto you and thou shall eat bread at my table continually. And he bowed himself and said, What is thy servant, that thou should look upon such a dead dog as I am? Then the king called to Ziba, Saul's servant and said unto him, I have given unto your master's son all that pertained to Saul and to all his house. Thou therefore and thy sons and thy servants, shall till the land for him and thou shall bring in the fruits, that thy master's son may have food to eat, but Mephibosheth thy master's son shall eat bread always at my table. Now Ziba had fifteen sons and twenty servants. Then said Ziba unto the king, According to all that my lord the king has commanded his servant, so shall thy servant do. As for Mephibosheth, said the king, he shall eat at my table, as one of the king's sons. And Mephibosheth had a young son, whose name was Micha. And all that dwelt in the house of Ziba were servants unto Mephibosheth. So Mephibosheth dwelt in Jerusalem, for he did eat continually at the king's table and was lame on both his feet.

2Samuel 10:1-3 And it came to pass after this, that the king of the children of Ammon died and Hanun his son reigned in his stead. Then said David, I will show kindness unto Hanun the son of Nahash, as his father showed kindness unto me. And David sent to comfort him by the hand of his servants for his father. And David's servants came into the land of the children of Ammon. And the princes of the children of Ammon said unto Hanun their lord, Think you that David does honour your father, that he has sent comforters unto you? Has not David rather sent his servants unto you to search the city and to spy it out and to overthrow it?

2Samuel 10:1-3 And it came to pass after this, that the king of the children of Ammon died and Hanun his son.(Hanun was the son and successor of Nahash, king of Moab; David's sent messengers on an embassy of condolence to him to Rabbah Ammon, his capital, but the messengers were so grossly insulted that he proclaimed war against Hanun; David's army, under the command of Joab, his nephew, forthwith crossed the Jordan and gained a complete victory over the Moabites and their allies).reigned in his stead. Then said David, I will show kindness unto Hanun the son of Nahash, as his father showed kindness unto me.(there may have been some family connection between David and Nahash {2Samuel 17:25}, otherwise we don't know what specific kindness this was). And David sent to comfort him by the hand of his servants for his father. And David's servants came into the land of the children of Ammon. And the princes of the children of Ammon said unto Hanun their lord, Think you that David does honour your father, that he has sent comforters unto you? Has not David rather sent his servants unto you to search the city and to spy it out and to overthrow it?.(those who are unkind can't see the true intents of others)

2Samuel 10:4,5 Wherefore Hanun took David's servants and shaved off the one half of their beards and cut off their garments in the middle, even to their buttocks and sent them away. When they told it unto David, he sent to meet them, because the men were greatly ashamed. And the king.(David).said, Tarry at Jericho until your beards be grown and then return.

2Samuel 10:6 And when the children of Ammon saw that they stank before David, the children of Ammon sent and hired the Syrians of Bethrehob and the Syrians of Zoba, twenty thousand footmen and of king Maacah a thousand men and of Ishtob twelve thousand men.

2Samuel 10:7,8 And when David heard of it, he sent Joaband all the host of the mighty men. And the children of Ammon came out and put the battle in array at the entering in of the gate and the Syrians of Zoba and of Rehob and Ishtob and Maacah, were by themselves in the field.

2Samuel 10:9-11 When Joab saw that the front of the battle was against him before and behind, he chose of all the choice men of Israel and put them in array against the Syrians. And the rest of the people he delivered into the hand of Abishai his brother, that he might put them in array against the children of Ammon. And he said, If the Syrians be too strong for me, then thou shall help me, but if the children of Ammon be too strong for thee, then I will come and help you.

2Samuel 10:12-14 Be of good courage and let us play the men for our people.(do the best we know to win this battle).and for the cities of our God and the LORD do that which seems him good. And Joab drew nigh and the people that were with him unto the battle against the Syrians and they fled before him. And when the children of Ammon saw that the Syrians were fled, then fled they also before Abishai and entered into the city. So Joab returned from the children of Ammon and came to Jerusalem.

2Samuel 10:15,16 And when the Syrians saw that they were smitten before Israel, they gathered themselves together.(they weren't ready to give up yet). And Hadarezer.(Son of Rehob, a Syrian king of Zobah. He was defeated by David with great loss and driven across the Euphrates).sent and brought out the Syrians that were beyond the river and they came to Helam and Shobach the captain of the host of Hadarezer went before them.

2Samuel 10:17-19 And when it was told David, he gathered all Israel together and passed over Jordan and came to Helam.(didn't wait for the battle to come to him, but instead, went after them). And the Syrians set themselves in array against David and fought with him. And the Syrians fled before Israel and David slew the men of seven hundred chariots of the Syrians and forty thousand horsemen and smote Shobach the captain of their host, who died there. And when all the kings that were servants to Hadarezer saw that they were smitten before Israel, they made peace with Israel and served them. So the Syrians feared to help the children of Ammon any more.
