{2 Samuel 5:23} And when David 1732 enquired 7592 z8799 of the LORD, 3068 he said, 559 z8799 Thou shalt not x3808 go up; 5927 z8799 [but] fetch a compass 5437 z8685 x413 behind 310 them, and come 935 z8804 upon them over against 4136 x4480 the mulberry trees. 1057
inquired:
"And David enquired of the LORD, saying, Shall I go up to the Philistines? wilt thou deliver them into mine hand? And the LORD said unto David, Go up: for I will doubtless deliver the Philistines into thine hand." {2Sm 5:19}
fetch:
"And thou shalt do to Ai and her king as thou didst unto Jericho and her king: only the spoil thereof, and the cattle thereof, shall ye take for a prey unto yourselves: lay thee an ambush for the city behind it." {Jsh 8:2} + "Then ye shall rise up from the ambush, and seize upon the city: for the LORD your God will deliver it into your hand." {Jsh 8:7} + "Therefore David enquired again of God; and God said unto him, Go not up after them; turn away from them, and come upon them over against the mulberry trees." {1Ch 14:14} + "Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you. ... And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, See [that] no man know [it]." {Mtt 9:29-30} + "And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him. ... And his disciples came to [him], and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish." {Mtt 8:23-25} + "When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, ... And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing." {Jhn 9:6-7}
the mulberry trees:
The word bechaim, rendered mulberry trees, is rendered by Aquila, απιων, pear-trees, as the LXX also render in "Therefore David enquired again of God; and God said unto him, Go not up after them; turn away from them, and come upon them over against the mulberry trees. ... And it shall be, when thou shalt hear a sound of going in the tops of the mulberry trees, [that] then thou shalt go out to battle: for God is gone forth before thee to smite the host of the Philistines." {1Ch 14:14-15}; and so the Vulgate in both places has pyrorum. The Rabbins, however, believe bacha signifies the mulberry-tree; with whom Ursinus agrees. It more probably denotes a large shrub which the Arabs still call baca, from its distilling an odoriferous gum, from bachah to distil, as tears. Of this opinion is Celsius, who quotes a passage from Abulfadi, who describes it as a balsam shrub, having longish leaves, and bearing a large fruit with an acrid taste. M. Forskal mentions a tree by the name of beca, with leaves rather ovated, smooth, entire. Its berries are poisonous to the sheep.
