1 Kings 4:9 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Elichoreph and Achijah, sons of Shisha, who had held the same office under David, were secretaries of state (ספרים: see at 2 Samuel 8:17 and 2 Samuel 20:25, where the different names שׁשׁא equals שׁיא and שׂריה are also discussed). - Jehoshaphat the son of Ahilud was the chancellor, as he had already been in the time of David (2 Samuel 8:17 and 2 Samuel 20:24). The rendering of Thenius, "whilst Jehoshaphat was chancellor," is grammatically impossible.
