1 Chronicles 28:4 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

David's councillors. This catalogue of the king's officials forms a supplementary companion piece to the catalogues of the public officials, 1 Chronicles 18:15-17, and 2 Samuel 8:15-18 and 2 Samuel 20:25-26. Besides Joab, who is met with in all catalogues as prince of the host, i.e., commander-in-chief, we find in our catalogue partly other men introduced, partly other duties of the men formerly named, than are mentioned in these three catalogues. From this it is clear that it is not the chief public officials who are enumerated, but only the first councillors of the king, who formed as it were his senate, and that the catalogue probably is derived from the same source as the preceding catalogues. Jonathan, the דּוד of David. The word דּוד generally denotes a father's brother; but since a Jonathan, son of Shimea, the brother of David, occurs 1 Chronicles 20:7 and 2 Samuel 21:21, Schmidt and Bertheau hold him to be the same as our Jonathan, when דּוד would be used in the general signification of "relative," here of a nephew. Nothing certain can be ascertained in reference to it. He was יויץ, councillor, and, as is added, a wise and learned man. סופר is here not an official designation, but signifies literatus, learned, scholarly, as in Ezra 7:6. Jehiel, the son of Hachmon, was with the children of the king, i.e., was governor of the royal princes.
