"2 Samuel," by Antony F. Campbell, S.J., is Volume VIII of The Forms of the Old Testament Literature, a series that aims to present a form-critical analysis of every book in the Hebrew Bible. Fundamentally exegetical, the FOTL volumes examine the "structure, genre, setting," and "intention" of each textual unit in question. They also study the history behind the form-critical discussion of the material, attempt to bring consistency to the terminology for the genres and formulas of the biblical literature, and expose the exegetical process so as to enable students and pastors to engage in their own analysis and interpretation of the Old Testament texts. Beginning where he left off in his volume on 1 Samuel, Campbell unpacks the wealth of insight inherent in 2 Samuel by paying close attention to the literary structure of the book. Following a comprehensive introduction, the commentary carefully analyzes the major sections of 2 Samuel and each passage within them. In the process, Campbell reveals the diversity of views that existed in Israel's traditions, and he highlights the primacy of theology over history in Israel's thinking.

King David ranks among the most intriguing persons in the Hebrew Bible. The Second Book of Samuel tells the story of David's kingship-his public successes and his private foibles. The narrator's rehearsal of this story, as questioning as it is vivid, glimpses the secrets of David's heart. In this commentary, Craig E. Morrison focuses on the aesthetics of the "art of the telling": how does the narrator succeed in breathing life into his portrait of David? How does he draw the reader into his story? This commentary is intended to accompany the reader's encounter with this ancient masterpiece so that one might cheer with David as he dances before the ark of God and weep with him as he grieves the death of his rebel son Absalom. Morrison's careful reading of 2 Samuel brings the reader face-to-face with David, whose multifaceted character eludes facile labels.

David's Heart Revealed

David is known as Israel’s greatest king, but he was certainly not a super-hero. He had to fight many difficult battles to establish his throne, and when he did become king, he committed murder, adultery, and brought disaster on his family. He was a man with all-too-human failings who was far from perfect, yet he was also a man after God’s own heart. David depended on God’s grace for forgiveness when he stumbled—the same grace that is available to us today. In this study, John MacArthur guides readers through an in-depth look at the historical period beginning with David’s struggle to establish his throne, continuing through his sin and repentance, and concluding with the tragic rebellion of his son Absalom. Studies include close-up examinations of Joab, Amnon, Tamar, Absalom, and others, as well as careful considerations of doctrinal themes such as “Obedience and Blessing” and being a “Man After God’s Own Heart.” The MacArthur Bible Studies provide intriguing examinations of the whole of Scripture. Each guide incorporates extensive commentary, detailed observations on overriding themes, and probing questions to help you study the Word of God with guidance from John MacArthur.

Why do the books of Samuel pack such broad appeal? Taken together as a single narrative, they certainly offer something for everyone: kings and prophets, great battles and greater heroes, action and romance, loyalty and betrayal, the mundane and the miraculous. In Samuel, we meet Saul, David, Goliath, Jonathan, Bathsheba, the witch of Endor, and other unforgettable characters. And we encounter ourselves. For while the culture and conditions of Israel under its first kings is vastly different from our own, the basic issues of humans in relation to God, the Great King, have not changed. Sin, repentance, forgiveness, adversity, prayer, faith, and the promises of God—these continue to play out in our lives today. Exploring the links between the Bible and our own times, Bill T. Arnold shares perspectives on 1 and 2 Samuel that reveal ageless truths for our twenty-first-century lives. Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. They focus on the original meaning of the passage but don’t discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable—but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps bring both halves of the interpretive task together. This unique, award-winning series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into our postmodern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it speaks powerfully today.

Quellenexegese aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Theologie - Biblische Theologie, Note: 1,5, Theologisches Seminar Adelshofen, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In diesem Lesejoaurnal gebe ich Kurzzusammenfassungen der Bücher Exodus bis 2. Samuel und nehme dazu persönlich Stellung. Der Name Mose bedeutet vom hebräischen her „Herausgezogen“. Er wurde in die Zeit der Sklaverei hineingeboren. Zur Zeit der Geburt Moses galt der Befehl des Pharao, alle neugeborenen Knaben umzubringen und die Mädchen am Leben zu lassen (2. Mos. 1, 16). Seine Mutter fürchtete sich, dass er auch ermordet werden könnte. So legte Sie ihn, als er 3 Monate alt war, in einen Korb und legte den Korb mit dem Kind in das „Schilf am Ufer des Wassers“ (2. Mos. 2, 3). Daraufhin fand ihn die ägyptische Prinzessin und erbarmte sich seiner. Sie gab ihm den Namen Mose (seine Namensbedeutung könnte aufgrund des Herausziehens aus dem Wasser sein). Folglich erhielt dieser jüdische Junge eine königlich ägyptische Erziehung. Aus Vers 11 erfahren wir, dass Mose einen Ägypter erschlug und verscharrte, da dieser einen Juden schlug. Dadurch erkennt man, dass Mose sich immer noch als Jude fühlte. Er sah das Elend der Israeliten und war sicherlich sehr zornig darüber. So ist er in gewisser Weise ein Patriot, denn ihm war sicherlich bewusst was die Konsequenz aus der Ermordung eines Ägypters war, vor allem weil er dadurch einem Sklaven geholfen hat. So kann man über Mose sagen, dass er gebildet (durch die ägyptische Erziehung), ungestüm und in gewissem Maße reizbar (die Ermordung des Ägypters), aber auch gottesfürchtig (Gespräch mit Gott auf dem Berg Horeb, an welchem er sein Angesicht verdeckt) ist. Zur Zeit seiner Berufung ist Mose 80 Jahre alt (7,7).

A Commentary

Robert P. Gordon has provided us with a substantial commentary on the English text of the books of Samuel, concentrating on exegesis, but also paying attention to linguistic and textual problems. "I have not tried to "Christianize" 1 and 2 Samuel at every conceivable point. Often as I have sought to show in the brief introductory section comparison; and the only way to arrive at sensible conclusions in this matter is first to appreciate the Old Testament for its own sake- that is in its own literary, historical, cultural and theological contexts. That is principally what this commentary is about."

Recipient of a 1990 Christianity Today Critics' Choice Award! The stories of Samuel, Saul and David are among the most memorable in the Old Testament. Yet the lives of these individuals are wound up in the larger story of God's purpose for his people. Looking beyond the well-known surface of these stories Joyce Baldwin explores the meaning of the biblical history of Israel's vital transition from a confederation of tribes to nationhood under a king. Bible students at all levels will find that this commentary provides an excellent introduction to the critical issues of authorship, date, composition and structure of Samuel, as well as an able discussion of its theological themes. Written in a clear and straightforward style, here is a worthy addition to the acclaimed Tyndale Commentary series. The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series.

Nathan's Oracle (2 Samuel 7) and Its Interpreters

This book offers a new analysis of Nathan’s Oracle in 2 Samuel 7 and its echoes in the books of Samuel, Kings, and Chronicles. First, it deals separately with the main issues raised in 2 Samuel 7: the disqualification of David as temple builder and the nature of the Divine promise made to him that the House of David will rule forever. In dealing with both elements similar texts from the Ancient Near East are consulted. After a thorough analysis of these two elements, an intertextual study is offered in which the allusions to Nathan’s Oracle in the Books Samuel, Kings, and Chronicles are discussed. The purpose is to define the various functions of these allusions or echoes. This evaluation takes into account the changing circumstances of the Davidic dynasty, as well as the different agendas of the books in which Nathan’s Oracle is incorporated in.

The books of Samuel present a drama in which the principal players are the God of Israel, the prophet Samuel, and the first kings of Israel, Saul and David. In his masterful commentary David F. Payne shows that this Old Testament book combines history and theology as it narrates Samuel's virtues, Saul's defeats, and David's successes in relation to God's activities during an important phase in the life of Israel. Carrying forward brilliantly the pattern established by Barclay's New Testament series, the Daily Study Bible has been extended to cover the entire Old Testament as well. Invaluable for individual devotional study, for group discussion, and for classroom use, the Daily Study Bible provides a useful, reliable, and eminently readable way to discover what the Scriptures were saying then and what God is saying today.
