Expository Notes of Dr. Thomas Constable
1 Chronicles 27



Verses 1-34

Preparations for governmental order ch27

David also organized his army ( 1 Chronicles 27:1-15), Israel"s tribal leaders ( 1 Chronicles 27:16-24), his administrators ( 1 Chronicles 27:25-31), and his counselors and advisers ( 1 Chronicles 27:32-34). He did all this to ensure future stability so what God had promised could happen without unnecessary opposition or confusion. Again the writer mentioned12tribes, but in this list these included Levi and the two halves of Manasseh. He omitted Gad and Asher in this tally ( 1 Chronicles 27:16-24; cf. ch7).

Chapters22-27 record David"s preparation for the fulfillment of those Davidic Covenant promises that would come after he passed off the scene. His preoccupation with God"s promises and his preparations for their fulfillment served as a good example for Chronicles" original readers. David"s zeal for the house of the Lord reflected his zeal for the reputation of the Lord. He truly put God"s glory before his own personal ambitions.
