Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Jehoiada is thought by Rashi, Kimchi, and others, to be the father of Benaiah, 1 Chronicles 11:22. He was נגיד for Aaron, i.e., prince of the house of Aaron, head of the family of the Aaronites, not princeps sacerdotum, which was a title appertaining to the high-priesthood, an office held at that time by Abiathar (1 Samuel 23:9).
