Peake's Commentary on the Bible

1 Chronicles 27

Verses 1-34

1 Chronicles 27:1-34 . Organisation of David’ s Army: Enumeration of his Officials ( cf. 1 Chronicles 11:10 ff.)

1 Chronicles 27:1 . According to this verse the army comprised 288,000 soldiers; this is an exaggeration.

1 Chronicles 27:32 . David’ s uncle: better “ kinsman” ; the Hebrew word dô d is used in this general sense.

1 Chronicles 27:33 . Cf. 2 Samuel 15:12; 2 Samuel 15:37.— the king’ s friend: a title of honour probably adapted from the Egyptian court; it occurs several times in 1 Mac., e.g. 1Ma_2:18 , 1Ma_3:38 .
