    1 The twelve captains for every several month. 16 The princes of the twelve tribes. 23 The numbering of the people is hindered. 25 David's several officers. VERSE 1 - the chief fathers. The patriarchs, chief generals, or generals of brigade. This enumeration is widely different from that of the preceding. In that, we have the order and course of the priests and Levites, in their ecclesiastical ministrations: in this, we have the account of the order of the civil service, what related simply to the political state of the king and kingdom. Twenty-four persons, chosen out of David's worthies, each of whom had a second, were placed over 24,000 men, who all served a month at a time, in turn; and this was the whole of their service during the year, after which they attended to their own affairs. Thus the king had always on foot a regular force of 24,000, who served without expense to him or the state, and were not oppressed by the service, which took up only a twelfth part of their time; and by this plan he could, at any time, bring into the field 12 times 24,000 or 288,000 fighting men, independently of the 12,000 officers, which made in the whole an effective force of 300,000 soldiers; and all these men were prepared, disciplined, and ready at a call, without the smallest expense to the state or the king. These were, properly speaking, the militia of the Israelitish kingdom. - captains. * 1Ch 13:1 Ex 18:25 De 1:15 1Sa 8:12 Mic 5:2 - served. * 1Ch 28:1 2Ch 17:12-19; 26:11-13 - any matter. * 1Ki 5:14 - month. * 1Ki 4:7,27 VERSE 2 - Jashobeam. * 1Ch 11:11 2Sa 23:8 - Adino the Eznite. VERSE 3 - Perez. * Ge 38:29 Nu 26:20 - Pharez. the chief. * Ge 49:8-10 Nu 7:12; 10:14 VERSE 4 - Dodai. * 1Ch 11:12 2Sa 23:9 - Dodo. VERSE 5 - Benaiah. Or, "Benaiah, the son of Jehoiada the chief priest:" it was Jehoiada, and not Benaiah, who was a priest. * 1Ch 18:17 1Ki 4:4 - chief priest. or, principal officer. * 1Ki 4:5 VERSE 6 - mighty. * 1Ch 11:22-25 2Sa 22:20-23; 23:20-23 VERSE 7 - Asahel. * 1Ch 11:26 2Sa 2:18-23; 23:24 VERSE 8 - Shamhuth. If this person was the same as Shammoth the Hararite, or Shammah the Harodite, it is probable that he took the denomination Izrahite, from one of his progenitors of the name Izrah, and derived the other from the place of his residence. * 1Ch 11:27 - Shammoth the Hararite. * 1Ch 26:29 2Sa 23:25 - Shammah the Harodite. VERSE 9 - Ira. * 1Ch 11:28 2Sa 23:26 VERSE 10 - Helez. * 1Ch 11:27 - Pelonite. * 2Sa 23:26 - Paltite. VERSE 11 - Sibbecai. * 1Ch 11:29 2Sa 21:18 - Zarhites. * Nu 26:20 VERSE 12 - Anetothite. * 1Ch 11:28 - Antothite. * 2Sa 23:27 - Anethothite. VERSE 13 - Maharai. * 1Ch 11:30 2Sa 23:28 - Zarhites. * :11 VERSE 14 - Benaiah. * 1Ch 11:31 2Sa 23:30 VERSE 15 - Heldai. * 1Ch 11:30 - Heled. * 2Sa 23:29 - Heleb. Othniel. * 1Ch 4:13 Jud 3:9 VERSE 16 - Furthermore. These persons, called "princes of the tribes," in ver. 22, and ch. 1 28:1, appear to have been civil rulers over their several tribes, and honorary men, without pay, not unlike the lords lieutenants of our counties. In this enumeration there is no mention of the tribes of Gad and Asher, probably because they were joined to the neighboring tribes; or perhaps, the account of these has been lost from the register. - Eliezar. i.e., my God is help. * Ge 15:2 - Shephatiah. i.e., judged of Jah. * 2Sa 3:4 VERSE 17 - Hashabiah. * 1Ch 26:30 - of the Aaronites. * 1Ch 12:27,28; 24:4,31 VERSE 18 - Elihu. If Elihu be not a mistake for Eliab, it is probable that he was called by both names. * 1Sa 16:6; 17:13,29 - Eliab. VERSE 19 - Ishmaiah. i.e., Jehovah will hear; he will hear the Lord. <\\S#3460h\\>. - Jerimoth. i.e., high places. * 1Ch 7:7 VERSE 20 - Azaziah. i.e., Jah has strengthened; strengthened of the Lord. <\\S#5812h\\>. * :20; 15:21 2Ch 31:13 - (1) One engaged in bringing up the ark from Obed-edom. * 1Ch 15:21 - (2) Father of Hoshea, prince of Ephraim. * :20 - (3) Set over the tithes under Hezekiah. * 2Ch 31:13 - Pedaiah. i.e., redeemed of Jehovah. * 2Ki 23:36 VERSE 21 - Iddo. * 1Ki 4:14 - Abner. * 1Sa 14:50,51 2Sa 3:27,37 VERSE 22 VERSE 23 - David took not. It seems probable, from this passage, that Joab began, by David's order, to number the children, as well as adults, but was prevented from finishing the account, probably because the plague had begun. The numbering of the effective men might have been deemed a political expedient; but pride and ostentation alone could dictate the numbering of minors and infants, especially as God had pronounced the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, innumerable. - from twenty. * Nu 1:18 - he would increase. * Ge 15:5 Heb 11:12 VERSE 24 - began to number. * 1Ch 21:1-17 2Sa 24:1-15 - was the number put. Heb. ascended the number. VERSE 25 - the king's. * 2Ki 18:15 2Ch 16:2 - the storehouses. * Ge 41:48 Ex 1:11 2Ch 26:10 Jer 41:8 VERSE 26 - Ezri. i.e., helpful; my help; help of the Lord. <\\S#5836h\\>. * :26 VERSE 27 - Shimei. i.e., hearing. * 2Sa 16:5 - the increase of the vineyards. Heb. that which was of the vineyards. - Ramathite. i.e., citizen of Ramath (i.e., lofty place, Jos 8 19:8). <\\S#7435h\\>. * Jos 19:8 - Shipmite. i.e., native of Shepham (i.e., bare, bald, Nu 34:10). <\\S#8225h\\>. * Nu 34:10 VERSE 28 - And over. * 1Ki 4:7 - the sycamore trees. The Hebrew {shikmin,} Syriac {shekmo,} and Arabic {jummeez,} is the [ ,] or sycomore, of the Greeks, so called from [ ,] a fig-tree, and [ ] a mulberry- tree, because it resembles the latter in its leaves, and the former in its fruits. "The sycamore," says Mr. Norden, "is of the height of a beech, and bears its fruit in a manner quite different from other trees: it has them on the trunk itself, which shoots out little sprigs, in form of grape stalks, at the end of which grow the fruit close to one another, almost like a cluster of grapes. The tree is always green, and bears fruit several times in the year, without observing any certain seasons; for I have seen some sycamores that have given fruit two months after others. The fruit has the figure and smell of real figs, but is inferior to them in the taste, having a disgusting sweetness. Its color is a yellow, inclining to an ochre, shadowed by a flesh color. In the inside it resembles the common figs, excepting that it has a blackish coloring with yellow spots. This sort of tree is pretty common in Egypt; the people, for the greater part, live on its fruit, and think themselves well regaled when they have a piece of bread, a couple of sycamore figs, and a pitcher of water." * 1Ki 20:27 VERSE 29 - Sharon. * 1Ch 5:16 Isa 65:10 VERSE 30 - the camels. * Job 1:3 - the Ishmaelite. * Ge 47:6 VERSE 31 - Jaziz i.e., gives life and motion; he will shine, or bring abundance; he will cause to abound. <\\S#3151h\\>. - Hagerite. i.e., fugitive. <\\S#1905h\\>. * 1Ch 11:38 - Haggeri. * :31 VERSE 32 - uncle. * 2Sa 13:3; 21:21 - nephew. counsellor. * 1Ch 26:14 2Sa 15:12 - wise. or, understanding. * Pr 28:2 - scribe. or, secretary. * Jud 5:14 - Jehiel. God lives. * Ezr 8:9 - son of Hachmoni. i.e., very wise. <\\S#2453h\\>. - or, Hachmonite. * 1Ch 11:11 VERSE 33 - Ahithophel. * 2Sa 15:12; 16:23; 17:23 - Hushai. * 2Sa 15:32,37; 16:16 - companion. * 2Sa 16:17 Ps 55:13 Zec 13:7 VERSE 34 - Abiathar. * 1Ki 1:7 - the general. * 1Ch 11:6 GOTO NEXT CHAPTER - TREASURY OF SCRIPTURE KNOWLEDGE INDEX
