Treasury of Scripture

Moreover Jehoiada the priest delivered to the captains of hundreds spears, and bucklers, and shields, that had been king David's, which were in the house of God.

spears

1 Samuel 21:9
And the priest said, The sword of Goliath the Philistine, whom thou slewest in the valley of Elah, behold, it is here wrapped in a cloth behind the ephod: if thou wilt take that, take it: for there is no other save that here. And David said, There is none like that; give it me.

2 Samuel 8:7
And David took the shields of gold that were on the servants of Hadadezer, and brought them to Jerusalem.









(9) Moreover.--And. This verse is essentially identical with 2Kings 11:10 : "And the priest delivered to the captains of hundreds the spear and the shields that had been king David's, which were in the house of Jehovah." The chronicler has added Jehoiada and the bucklers, and turned the spear into spears, rightly according to most critics.

Spears, and bucklers, and shields.--Each word has the article in the Hebrew.

That had been king David's.--Comp. 1Chronicles 18:7; 1Chronicles 18:11; also 1Samuel 22:10; 1Samuel 17:7.

Verse 9. - Shields... King David's ... in the house of God. Some think these may have been the shields of gold that King David took from the servants of Hadadezer (2 Samuel 8:7, 11).
