The LXX. translators
regarded the books of Samuel and of Kings as forming one continuous
history, which they divided into four books, which they called
"Books of the Kingdom." The Vulgate version followed this division,
but styled them "Books of the Kings." These books of Samuel they
accordingly called the "First" and "Second" Books of Kings, and not,
as in the modern Protestant versions, the "First" and "Second" Books
of Samuel. The second book, comprising a period of perhaps fifty
years, contains a history of the reign of David (1) over Judah
(1-4), and (2) over all Israel (5-24), mainly in its political
aspects. The last four chapters of Second Samuel may be regarded as
a sort of appendix recording various events, but not
chronologically. These books do not contain complete histories.
Frequent gaps are met with in the record, because their object is to
present a history of the kingdom of God in its gradual development,
and not of the events of the reigns of the successive rulers. It is
noticeable that the section (2 Samuel 11:2-12:29) containing an
account of David's sin in the matter of Bathsheba is omitted in the
corresponding passage in 1 Chronicles 20.
