Definitions for 2-samuel 1 :25

Clarke's Commentary on 2-samuel 1 :25

Barnes' Commentary on 2-samuel 1 :25

How are the mighty fallen - The recurrenee of the same idea 2 Samuel 1:19, 2 Samuel 1:25, 2 Samuel 1:27 is perfectly congenial to the nature of elegy, since grief is fond of dwelling upon the particular objects of the passion, and frequently repeating them. By unanimous consent this is considered one of the most beautiful odes in the Bible, and the generosity of David in thus mourning for his enemy and persecutor, Saul, enhances the effect upon the mind of the reader.

Wesley's Commentary on 2-samuel 1 :25

1:25 Thine - Which were in thy country, and (had not thy father disinherited thee by his sins) in thy dominions.
