      1  David's messengers, sent to comfort Hanun the son of
        Nahash, are villanously treated.
     6  The Ammonites, strengthened by the Syrians, are overcome by
        Joab and Abishai.
    15  Shobach, making a new supply of the Syrians at Helam, is
        slain by David.

    VERSE 4 
     - and shaved.
      The beard is held in high respect and greatly valued in the
      East:  the possessor considers it as his greatest ornament;
      often swears by it; and, in matters of great importance,
      pledges it; and nothing can be more secure than such a pledge;
      for its owner will redeem it at the hazard of his life.  The
      beard was never cut off but in mourning, or as a sign of
      slavery.  It is customary to shave the Ottoman princes, as a
      mark of their subjection to the reigning emperor.  The beard
      is a mark of authority and liberty among the Mohammedans.  The
      Persians who clip the beard, and shave above the jaw, are
      reputed heretics.  They who serve in the {seraglios} have
      their beards shaven, as a sign of servitude; nor do they
      suffer them to grow till the sultan has set them at liberty.
      Among the Arabians, it is more infamous for anyone to appear
      with his beard cut off, than among us to be publicly whipped
      or branded; and many would prefer death to such a punishment.

    VERSE 12 
     - Be of good.
      This is a very animating address, and equal to any thing of
      the kind in ancient or modern times.  Ye fight {pro aris et
      focis;} for every good, sacred and civil; for God, for your
      families, and for your countries.  Such harangues, especially
      in very trying circumstances, are very natural, and may
      perhaps be found in the records of every nation.  Several
      instances might be quoted from Roman and Grecian history; but
      few are more remarkable than that of Tyrtaeus, the lame
      Athenian poet, to whom the command of the army was given in
      one of the Messenian wars.  The Spartans had at that time
      suffered great losses, and all their stratagems proved
      ineffectual, so that they began to despair of success; when
      the poet, by his lectures on honor and courage, delivered in
      moving verse to the army, ravished them to such a degree with
      the thoughts of dying for their country, that, rushing on with
      a furious transport to meet their enemies, they gave them an
      entire overthrow, and by one decisive battle brought the war
      to a happy conclusion.
