Treasury of Scripture

And over the flocks was Jaziz the Hagerite. All these were the rulers of the substance which was king David's.









(31) And over the flocks.--Of sheep and goats.

Jaziz the Hagerite.--See 1Chronicles 5:10-19, for the conquest of East Gilead, the home of the Hagrim, or "Hagerites," by the tribe of Reuben, in the days of Saul. David's herds of camels and flocks of small cattle may have grazed in the pastures east of the Jordan, under the charge of his Bedawi overseers.

All these were the rulers of the substance which was king David's.--The word rendered "rulers" is s?rim, "captains" or "princes." (See 1Chronicles 27:22.) The same term is translated "stewards" in 1Chronicles 28:1.

Substance (r?k-sh) is an old word, denoting especially the moveable wealth of a nomad chief. (Comp. Genesis 12:5; Genesis 14:21.) The wealth of David consisted partly of flocks and herds, but partly also of the produce of husbandry, and, no doubt, of commerce. (See 1Chronicles 14:1; 1Chronicles 22:4.) The period of the kings saw Israel a settled nation, that had exchanged the purely nomad life for an ordered social existence. . . .

Verse 31. - For the Hagerite tribe, see 1 Chronicles 5:10, 18-22. For the rulers of the substance, the Hebrew words are שָׂרֵי הָרְכּוּשׁ. The number of them adds up again to twelve; Keil justly supposes that the two named in ver. 25 were those principal officers to whom the other ten delivered the proceeds of their respective charges.
