Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Samuel 15:18-20

_ _ all the Gittites, six hundred men — These were a body of foreign guards, natives of Gath, whom David, when in the country of the Philistines, had enlisted in his service, and kept around his person. Addressing their commander, Ittai, he made a searching trial of their fidelity in bidding them (2 Samuel 15:19) abide with the new king.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Samuel 15:13-23.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Samuel 15:18

Gittites — Or rather strangers, as Ittai their head is called, 2 Samuel 15:19, and they are called his brethren, 2 Samuel 15:20. Probably they were Philistines by birth, born in the city or territory of Gath, as the following words imply, who by David's counsel, and example, were won to embrace the true religion, and had given good proof of their military skill, and valour, and fidelity to the king.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Samuel 15:18

And all his servants passed on beside him; and all the (k) Cherethites, and all the Pelethites, and all the Gittites, six hundred men which came after him from Gath, passed on before the king.

(k) These were as the king's guard, or as some write, his counsellors.
