Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Samuel 22:7-8

_ _ Hear now, ye Benjamites — This was an appeal to stimulate the patriotism or jealousy of his own tribe, from which he insinuated it was the design of David to transfer the kingdom to another. This address seems to have been made on hearing of David’s return with his four hundred men to Judah. A dark suspicion had risen in the jealous mind of the king that Jonathan was aware of this movement, which he dreaded as a conspiracy against the crown.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Samuel 22:6-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Samuel 22:7

Ye Benjamites — You that are of my own tribe and kindred, from whom David designs to translate the kingdom to another tribe. Will he distribute profits and preferments among you Benjamites, as I have done? Will he not rather prefer those of his own tribe before you?
