    SEV Biblia, Chapter 20:26

    e Ira jaireo fue sacerdote de David.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Samuel 20:26

    Verse 26. Ira-was a
    chief ruler about David.] The Hebrew is dywdl hk cohen ledavid, a priest to David; and so the Vulgate, Septuagint, Syriac, and Arabic. The Chaldee has br rab, a prince, or chief. He was probably a sort of domestic chaplain to the king. We know that the kings of Judah had their seers, which is nearly the same: Gad was David's seer, chap. xxiv. 11, and Jeduthun was the seer of King Josiah, 2 Chron. xxxv. 16.

    The conclusion of this chapter is very similar to the conclusion of chap. viii. 16-18, where see the notes.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 26. And Ira also the Jairite , etc.] Which some take to be the same with Ira the Ithrite, ( 2 Samuel 23:38); a son of Jether or Ithra the Israelite, ( 2 Samuel 17:25); though others suppose he was Ira the son of Ikkesh the Tekoite, ( 2 Samuel 23:26); and so the Targum here calls him Ira the Jairite, which was of Tekoah; and Tekoah being the chief place in Israel for oil olive f347 , with which the lamps were lighted, Jarchi thinks he had the name of Jairite from Jair, which signifies to enlighten; but rather he was a descendant from Jair the Gileadite, and perhaps was a great friend to David when in Gilead, and from whence he brought him and promoted him: for he was a chief ruler about David ; a prime minister, an intimate friend, the chief of his privy council; perhaps he succeeded Ahithophel; it is much we hear nothing of Hushai.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 23-26 - Here is the
    state of David's court, after his restoration. It is wel when able men are appointed to discharge public duties; let all seek to perform those duties, as faithful servants to the Son of David __________________________________________________________________
