Everett's Study Notes on the Holy Scriptures

1 Chronicles 12

Verses 1-40

1 Chronicles 12:32 And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment.

1 Chronicles 12:32 “And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do” Comments - The children of Issachar had understanding of the times in which they lived. They understood that God was changing the royal family from that of Saul to David. They understood the need to align themselves with their new king, knowing that the possibility of the family of Saul might try to take back the throne and persecute those who supported David.

1 Chronicles 12:40 Moreover they that were nigh them, even unto Issachar and Zebulun and Naphtali, brought bread on asses, and on camels, and on mules, and on oxen, and meat, meal, cakes of figs, and bunches of raisins, and wine, and oil, and oxen, and sheep abundantly: for there was joy in Israel.

1 Chronicles 12:40 “for there was joy in Israel” - Comments - When all of God’s children come in one mind to allow Jesus Christ to be Lord and King in their lives, there will be much joy in the house of God.
