Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Chronicles 10:10

_ _ put his armour in the house of their gods — It was common among the heathen to vow to a national or favorite deity, that, in the event of a victory, the armor of the enemy’s king, or of some eminent leader, should be dedicated to him as an offering of gratitude. Such trophies were usually suspended on the pillars of the temple.

_ _ fastened his head in the temple of Dagon — while the trunk or headless corpse was affixed to the wall of Beth-shan (1 Samuel 31:10).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Chronicles 10:8-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Chronicles 10:10

Temple of Dagon — If we give not God the glory of our successes, even Philistines will rise up in judgment with us and condemn us. Shall Dagon have so great a place in their triumphs, and the true God be forgotten in ours?
