There happened to be there a son 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,
neither have we inheritance in the son of Jesse.
Every man to his tents, Israel!” Bible

“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
