Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Chronicles 20:2

_ _ David took the crown of their king ..., and found it to weigh a talent of gold — equal to one hundred twenty-five pounds. Some think that Malcom, rendered in our version “their king,” should be taken as a proper name, Milcom or Molech, the Ammonite idol, which, of course, might bear a heavy weight. But, like many other state crowns of Eastern kings, the crown got at Rabbah was not worn on the head, but suspended by chains of gold above the throne.

_ _ precious stonesHebrew, a “stone,” or cluster of precious stones, which was set on David’s head.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Chronicles 20:1-3.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Chronicles 20:2

To weigh a talent — Or, to be worth a talent, that is, five thousand four hundred and seventy five pounds.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

And David took the crown of their king from off his head, and found it to weigh a (b) talent of gold, and [there were] precious stones in it; and it was set upon David's head: and he brought also exceeding much spoil out of the city.

(b) Which mounts about the value of seven thousand and seventy crowns, which is about 60 pound weight.
