(64, 65) "So the sons of Israel gave to the Levites the cities and their pastures. And they gave by the lot, out of the tribe of the sons of Judah, and out of the tribe of the sons of Simeon, and out of the tribe of the sons of Benjamin, those cities which are called by names;" named, that is, in the list of 1Chronicles 6:55-60, above. This is clearly a summing up of the whole account so far. The eleven tribes have all been mentioned in 1Chronicles 6:61-65.

The "cities" of 1Chronicles 6:64 are those included in 1Chronicles 6:61-63. So the parallel verse (Joshua 21:8) refers back to Joshua 21:5-7, which is parallel to our 1Chronicles 6:61-63. Joshua 21:9 (=our 1Chronicles 6:65) introduces the names of the cities which fell to the Aaronites. But there is no real divergence between that account and this; because 1Chronicles 6:65 also refers back to the list of the same cities in 1Chronicles 6:55-60. The chronicler adds Benjamin, with reference to 1Chronicles 6:60, to make his tribal list complete.

(66?81) The names of the cities numbered in 1Chronicles 6:61-64. (Comp. Joshua 21:20-26.)

6:1-81 Genealogies. - We have an account of Levi in this chapter. The priests and Levites were more concerned than any other Israelites, to preserve their descent clear, and to be able to prove it; because all the honours and privileges of their office depended upon their descent. Now, the Spirit of God calls ministers to their work, without any limit as to the families they came from; and then, as now, though believers and ministers may be very useful to the church, none but our great High Priest can make atonement for sin, nor can any be accepted but through his atonement.
