    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Samuel 10:16

    The Syrians that were beyond the river - That is, the Euphrates.

    Hadarezer - This is the same that was overthrown by David, 2 Samuel 8:3 and there called Hadadezer; which is the reading here of about thirty of Kennicott's and De Rossi's MSS. But the ר resh and ד daleth are easily interchanged.

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Samuel 10:16

    Helam - The place is unknown. Some prefer the translation of the Latin Vulgate: "their host came."
