Treasury of Scripture

These were the potters, and those that dwelled among plants and hedges: there they dwelled with the king for his work.

1 Chronicles 4:14
And Meonothai begat Ophrah: and Seraiah begat Joab, the father of the valley of Charashim; for they were craftsmen.

Psalm 81:6
I removed his shoulder from the burden: his hands were delivered from the pots.









(23) These were the potters.--Viz., the clans enumerated in 1Chronicles 4:22.

And those that dwelt among plants and hedges.--Rather, and inhabitants of Net aim and Gederah. Netaim means "plantations" (Isaiah 17:10). Solomon had pleasure-gardens near Bethlehem. See also the notice of Uzziah's farms and vineyards (2Chronicles 26:10). Gederah (Joshua 15:36), a town in the Shephelah.

There they dwelt with the king.--Literally, with the king in his work they dwelt there. This seems to say that the potteries of Netaim and Gederah were a royal establishment, as those of Sevres used to be. Perhaps the linen-weaving of Beth-Ashbea (1Chronicles 4:21) should be included.
