Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 13:18-22.


Acts 13:22

_ _ I have found David, etc. — This quotation is the substance of Psalms 89:20; 1 Samuel 13:14; and perhaps also of Psalms 78:70-72.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 13:14-41.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 13:22

Having removed him — Hence they might understand that the dispensations of God admit of various changes. I have found David, a man after my own heart — This expression is to be taken in a limited sense. David was such at that time, but not at all times. And he was so, in that respect, as he performed all God's will, in the particulars there mentioned: But he was not a man after God's own heart, in other respects, wherein he performed his own will. In the matter of Uriah, for instance, he was as far from being a man after God's own heart as Saul himself was. It is therefore a very gross, as well as dangerous mistake, to suppose this is the character of David in every part of his behaviour. We must beware of this, unless we would recommend adultery and murder as things after God's own heart. 1 Samuel 16:12-13.
