EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)And his brethren by Eliezer.—And his (Shebuel’s) brethren (kinsmen) belonging to (the house of) Eliezer (Moses’ second son) were Rehabiah his (Eliezer’s) son, and Jeshaiah his (Rehabiah’s) son, &c. (Comp. 1Chronicles 23:17.) The object of the verse is to show the extraction of Shelomith or Shelomoth, whose function is defined in 1Chronicles 26:26. Shelomith the Amramite is not to be confused with the Gershomite Shelomith (1Chronicles 23:9), nor with the Izharite (1Chronicles 23:18; 1Chronicles 24:22).1 Chronicles 23:5 states that the duty was discharged by 4,000 persons. Perhaps of the 93 chief porters here spoken of 1 Chronicles 26:8-9, 1 Chronicles 26:11, 1 Chronicles 26:24 were always on guard as officers, while of the remaining 3,907, a certain proportion were each day on duty as their subordinates.
20. of the Levites, Ahijah—The heading of this section is altogether strange as it stands, for it looks as if the sacred historian were going to commence a new subject different from the preceding. Besides, "Ahijah, whose name occurs after" the Levites, is not mentioned in the previous lists. It is totally unknown and is introduced abruptly without further information; and lastly, Ahijah must have united in his own person those very offices of which the occupants are named in the verses that follow. The reading is incorrect. The Septuagint has this very suitable heading, "And their Levitical brethren over the treasures," &c. [Bertheau]. The names of those who had charge of the treasure chambers at their respective wards are given, with a general description of the precious things committed to their trust. Those treasures were immense, consisting of the accumulated spoils of Israelitish victories, as well as of voluntary contributions made by David and the representatives of the people.His brethren by Eliezer; another son of Moses, Exodus 18:4. And his brethren by Eliezer; Rehabiah his son, and Jeshaiah his son, and Joram his son, and Zichri his son, and Shelomith his son.
