There had come there a man of Belial whose name was Sheba, the son of Bichri, a Benjamite, and he blew the shofar and said,
“We have no portion in David,
and we have no inheritance in the son of Jesse.
Every man to his tents, O Israel!” Bible see other translations

“There had come there.” The place is Gilgal (2 Sam. 19:40).

“son of Belial.” This is a designation of sons of the Devil.

[For more on sons of Belial, see commentary on 1 Sam. 2:12. For more on the unforgivable sin and children of the Devil, see commentary on Matt. 12:31.]

“shofar.” The ram’s horn trumpet, not the metal trumpet.

Commentary for: 2 Samuel 20:1
