2 Chronicles 23:15 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The account of the occupation of the temple thus arranged agrees with 2 Kings 11:9-11. Instead of המּאות שׂרי (Kings), in 2 Chronicles 23:8 are very fittingly named "the Levites (as in 2 Chronicles 23:5) and all Judah," viz., in its chiefs, since the high priest had assured himself of the support of the heads of the fathers'-houses of Israel (2 Chronicles 23:2). Further, to the statement that those who were departing from the service also took part in the affair, it is added, "for Jehoiada had not dismissed the courses." המּחלקות are the divisions which, according to the arrangement made by David (1 Chronicles 24-26), had charge of the temple service at that time. To the captains Jehoiada gave the spears and shields which had been presented to the temple by David as offerings, because they had come into the temple without weapons; see on 2 Kings 11:10. ויּעמד, "and he caused the whole people to take position," is connected formally with ויּתּן, 2 Chronicles 23:9; while in 2 Kings 11:11, we have simply ויּעמדוּ.
