Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on 1 Samuel 17:4-11.


1 Samuel 17:8-11

_ _ I defy the armies of Israel ...; give me a man, that we may fight together — In cases of single combat, a warrior used to go out in front of his party, and advancing towards the opposite ranks, challenge someone to fight with him. If his formidable appearance, or great reputation for physical strength and heroism, deterred any from accepting the challenge, he used to parade himself within hearing of the enemy’s lines, specify in a loud, boastful, bravado style, defying them, and pouring out torrents of abuse and insolence to provoke their resentment.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Samuel 17:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Samuel 17:11

Afraid — This may seem strange, considering the glorious promises, and their late experience of divine assistance. And where was Jonathan, who in the last war had so bravely engaged an whole army of the Philistines? Doubtless he did not feel himself so stirred up of God as he did at that time. As the best, so the bravest of men, are no more than what God makes them. Jonathan must sit still now, because this honour is reserved for David.
