Treasury of Scripture

eating and drinking

Genesis 26:30
And he made them a feast, and they did eat and drink.

Genesis 31:54

2 Samuel 6:19

(39-40) The coronation feast. Comp. 1Kings 1:9; 1Kings 1:19; 1Kings 1:25; the usurpation of Adonijah.

Their brethren.--Fellow tribesmen of Judah; especially those living at and around Hebron.

Had prepared victuals.--2Chronicles 35:14.

Verse 39. - The supplies for eating and drinking were no doubt found chiefly in kind. To sum the number of the men here described, we should require to allow for those of Issachar and of the Aaronites and Zadokites added to the Levites (vers. 26-28). That grand total will not amount to the six hundred thousand of Exodus 12:37.
