Ge 14:18 Jos 10:3 Jud 1:8 Heb 7:1
* the Jebusites.
Jos 15:63 18:28 Jud 1:8,21 19:10-12
* which spake, etc.
Dr. Kennicott's amended translation is as follows: "Who spake
unto David, saying, Thou shalt not come in hither; for the
blind and the lame shall drive thee away, by saying, David
shall not come in hither." ver. 8. "And David said, Whosoever
smiteth the Jebusites, and through the subterraneous passage
reacheth the lame and the blind, who hate the life of David,
(because the blind and the lame said, he shall not come into
the house,) shall be chief and captain. So Joab, the son of
Zeriah, went up first, and was chief."
* thinking, David cannot. or, saying, David shall not, etc.
