Treasury of Scripture

The whole number of the chief of the fathers of the mighty men of valor were two thousand and six hundred.









(12) Chief of the fathers.--Heads of the families, or father-houses.

Of the mighty men of valour.--To wit, the mighty men of valour, in apposition with heads of the families. The army was marshalled, as of old, according to clans, or houses, the heads of which are here distinguished as "valiant heroes."

Verse 12. - Of the mighty men of valour. The "of" here is incorrect; the former sub-stautive is not necessarily in construct state, and this word has the prefix of the preposition לְ; nor is the rendering "valour" for our Hebrew text חָיִל so likely a rendering as that found in the foregoing verse, "host." Render, The whole number of the chief of the fathers in the mighty men of the host was, etc. So in the next verse. "with mighty power" will be better rendered "with the strength of a host."
