Treasury of Scripture

Also Jonathan David's uncle was a counselor, a wise man, and a scribe: and Jehiel the son of Hachmoni was with the king's sons:

uncle

2 Samuel 13:3
But Amnon had a friend, whose name was Jonadab, the son of Shimeah David's brother: and Jonadab was a very subtil man.

2 Samuel 21:21
And when he defied Israel, Jonathan the son of Shimea the brother of David slew him.

nephew

1 Chronicles 11:11
And this is the number of the mighty men whom David had; Jashobeam, an Hachmonite, the chief of the captains: he lifted up his spear against three hundred slain by him at one time.









IV.--DAVID'S PRIVY COUNCIL 1Chronicles 27:32-34).

(32) Also Jonathan David's uncle was a counsellor.--A son of David's brother Shimeah was named Jonathan (1Chronicles 20:7; 2Samuel 21:21). Nothing further is known of the present Jonathan than what is here related.

A wise man, and a scribe.--Rather, a sage and a scholar was he. The word rendered "scribe" (soph?r) usually answers to the ?????????? of the New Testament, and so the LXX. gives it here. We may remember that in the rude epochs of society mere writing has been esteemed an art, so that a king of England who could write was dubbed Beauclerc, "fine scholar." Charles the Great never got so far as signing his own name, though he made great efforts to do so. But writing goes back to a very ancient period among Semitic races, and soph?r probably means here, as in Ezra 7:6, "a man of letters," or "skilled in the sacred law." (See 1Chronicles 2:55; Isaiah 33:18; Psalm 45:2.) David's official soph?r, or scribe, was Shavsha (1Chronicles 18:16). . . .

Verses 32-34. - These verses contain the names of seven men of high position, and who were, at all events, important enough, in one respect or another, for this closing special mention.

1. Jonathan and Ahithophel are singled out as counsellors (יועֵצ) of the king.

2. Hushai the Archite is mentioned as the companion (רֵעַ) of the king.

3. Jehoiada the son of Benaiah, and Abiathar are mentioned as standing in a similar relation of counsellors to the king with Ahithophel, but after him. . . .
