    Definitions for 2 Samuel 24:22

    Let - To hinder or obstruct.

    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Samuel 24:22

    Here be oxen for burnt-sacrifice - He felt for the king; and showed his loyalty to him by this offer. He felt for the people; and was willing to make any sacrifice to get the plague stayed. He felt for his own personal safety; and therefore was willing to give up all to save his life. He felt for the honor of God; and therefore was glad that he had a sacrifice to offer, so that God might magnify both his justice and mercy.

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Samuel 24:22

    Here be oxen - Those, namely, which were at that very time threshing out the grain in Araunah's threshing-floor 1 Chronicles 21:20; Deuteronomy 25:4.

    Threshing-instruments - This was a kind of sledge with iron teeth Isaiah 41:15. It was drawn by two or four oxen over the grain on the floor.

    Other instruments of the oxen - "i. e., the harness of the oxen," of which the yoke, and perhaps some other parts, would be made of wood (marginal references; 1 Samuel 6:14).
