(30) Over the camels also was Obil the Ishmaelite.--Obil's name means either "owner of camels" or "a good manager of camels," answering exactly to the Arabic 'abil. (Comp. Genesis 37:25; Judges 7:12.) An "Ishmaelite," i.e., an Arab, would be the fittest person for looking after camels.

The asses.--The she-asses. (Comp. Genesis 49:14; Judges 5:10; Zechariah 9:9.)

Jehdeiah the Meronothite.--Of Mer?n?th, a town perhaps near Mizpah (Nehemiah 3:7). The LXX. has Merathon, or Marathon.

Verse 30. - Whether the word Obil (אובִיל), is a proper name or not, it signifies "a tender of camels" by derivation. The task suited the Ishmaelite, no doubt! Nothing is known of the Meronothite, nor of the situation of the place called Meronoth, unless anything may be conjectured from Nehemiah 3:7. 27:16-34 The officers of the court, or the rulers of the king's substance, had the oversight and charge of the king's tillage, his vineyards, his herds, his flocks, which formed the wealth of eastern kings. Much of the wisdom of princes is seen in the choice of their ministry, and common persons show it in the choice of their advisers. David, though he had all these about him, preferred the word of God before them all. Thy testimonies are my delight and my counsellors.
