Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Samuel 30:26

_ _ when David came to Ziklag, he sent of the spoil to the elders of Judah — This was intended as an acknowledgment to the leading men in those towns and villages of Judah which had ministered to his necessities in the course of his various wanderings. It was the dictate of an amiable and grateful heart; and the effect of this well-timed liberality was to bring a large accession of numbers to his camp (1 Chronicles 12:22). The enumeration of these places shows what a numerous and influential party of adherents to his cause he could count within his own tribe [1 Samuel 30:27-31].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Samuel 30:21-31.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Samuel 30:26

Elders of Judah — Partly in gratitude for their former favours to him: and partly, in policy, to engage their affections to him.
