2 Samuel 21:21

And when he defied Israel, Jonathan the son of Shimeah the brother of David slew him.

And when he defied Israel,.... The armies of Israel, as Goliath had done some years ago, 1 Samuel 17:10;

Jonathan the son of Shimea the brother of David slew him; this brother of David is called Shammah, 1 Samuel 16:9; and Shimma, 1 Chronicles 2:13; this son of his is another man from Jonadab his son, who was famous for his subtlety as this was for his valour, 2 Samuel 13:3. The Jews say {d} this was Nathan the prophet, a son of Shammah.
