Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Samuel 1:2-12

_ _ a man came out of the camp from Saul — As the narrative of Saul’s death, given in the last chapter, is inspired, it must be considered the true account, and the Amalekite’s story a fiction of his own, invented to ingratiate himself with David, the presumptive successor to the throne. David’s question, “How went the matter?” evinces the deep interest he took in the war, an interest that sprang from feelings of high and generous patriotism, not from views of ambition. The Amalekite, however, judging him to be actuated by a selfish principle, fabricated a story improbable and inconsistent, which he thought would procure him a reward. Having probably witnessed the suicidal act of Saul, he thought of turning it to his own account, and suffered the penalty of his grievously mistaken calculation (compare 2 Samuel 1:9 with 1 Samuel 31:4, 1 Samuel 31:5).
