John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

1 Chronicles 11

Introduction

INTRODUCTION TO 1 CHRONICLES 11

This chapter treats of David's being anointed king by all Israel, 1 Chronicles 11:1, which agrees with 2 Samuel 5:1

2 Samuel 5:1- : 2 Samuel 5:1- : 2 Samuel 5:1- : and of his taking Jerusalem from the Jebusites, 1 Chronicles 11:4 the account of which we have 2 Samuel 5:6.

2 Samuel 5:6- : 2 Samuel 5:6- : 2 Samuel 5:6- : 2 Samuel 5:6- : 2 Samuel 5:6- : only here we are told, that it was Joab that smote the Jebusites first, and so was made chief captain according to David's promise; and that he also repaired the rest of the city David built round about; perhaps the fortifications demolished in taking it, 1 Chronicles 11:6 or rather, as others give the sense, he "saved alive" b those that remained in the city, after he had slain the lame and the blind; though a learned c writer conjectures it should be read, "and Joab יהיה was made

שר the governor of the city"; and the Targum is,

"Joab governed the rest of the city.''

And then follows an account of David's mighty men and worthies, 1 Chronicles 11:10 of whom see the notes on

1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : 1 Chronicles 11:10- : and others are added here, 1 Chronicles 11:42 of whom we know no more than their names.
