2Sa 20:1

“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.

2Sa 20:8

“the great stone that is in Gibeon.” This is likely a large standing-stone that was set up there. However, the Bible does not say who set it up or when. The Gibeonites were Hivites (Josh. 11:9), and Joshua made a covenant with them to let them live (Josh. 9). [For more on standing-stones, see commentary on Gen. 28:18].

2Sa 20:19

“mother.” Here in 2 Samuel 20:19, the “mother” is a city that is strong and usually well-fortified and supports the smaller villages and towns around it, which are sometimes referred to as “daughters” (see commentary on Josh. 15:45). In this case, the city of Abel was a “mother” in Israel.
