1 Chronicles 4:10

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Chronicles 4:10

Called — When he was undertaking some great and dangerous service. Enlarge — Drive out these Canaanites, whom thou hast commanded us to root out. Grieve — That it may not oppress and overcome me: more is understood than is expressed. He useth this expression in allusion to his name, which signifies grief. And God granted, &c. — Prospered him remarkably in his undertakings, in his studies, in his worldly business, and in his conflicts with the Canaanites.
