1 Chronicles 11 Commentary - Matthew Henry Commentary on the Whole Bible (Concise)

Chapter 11

David raised to the throne. (1-9) A list of David's mighty men. (10-47)

Verses 1-9 David was brought to possess the throne of Israel after he had reigned seven years in Hebron, over Judah only. God's counsels will be fulfilled at last, whatever difficulties lie in the way. The way to be truly great, is to be really useful, to devote all our talents to the Lord.

Verses 10-47 An account is given of David's worthies, the great men who served him. Yet David reckoned his success, not as from the mighty men that were with him, but from the mighty God, whose presence is all in all. In strengthening him, they strengthened themselves and their own interest, for his advancement was theirs. We shall gain by what we do in our places for the support of the kingdom of the Son of David; and those that are faithful to Him, shall find their names registered much more to their honour, than these are in the records of fame.

1 Chronicles 11 Commentary - Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible

CHAPTER 11

1 Chronicles 11:1-3 . DAVID MADE KING.

1. Then all Israel gathered themselves to David unto Hebron--This event happened on the death of Ish-bosheth The convention of the estates of the kingdom, the public and solemn homage of the representatives of the people, and the repeated anointing of the new king in their presence and by their direction, seem to have been necessary to the general acknowledgment of the sovereign on the part of the nation (compare 1 Samuel 11:15 ).

1 Chronicles 11:4-9 . HE WINS THE CASTLE OF ZION FROM THE JEBUSITES BY JOAB'S VALOR.

4. David and all Israel went to . . .

8. Joab repaired the rest of the city--David built a new town to the north of the old one on Mount Zion; but Joab was charged with a commission to restore the part that had been occupied by the ancient Jebus, to repair the breaches made during the siege, to rebuild the houses which had been demolished or burned in the sacking of the town, and to preserve all that had escaped the violence of the soldiery. This work of reconstruction is not noticed elsewhere [CALMET].

1 Chronicles 11:10-47 . A CATALOGUE OF HIS WORTHIES.

10. These . . . are the chief of the mighty They are here described as those who held strongly with him (Margin) to make him king, &c. In these words the sacred historian assigns a reason for introducing the list of their names, immediately after his account of the election of David as king, and the conquest of Jerusalem; namely, that they assisted in making David king. In the original form of the list, and the connection in which it occurs in Samuel, there is no reference to the choice of a king; and even in this passage it is only in the clause introduced into the superscription that such a reference occurs [KEIL].

11-13. Jashobeam, an Hachmonite--or, "son of Hachmoni." He is called also son of Zabdiel ( 1 Chronicles 27:2 ), so that, strictly speaking, he was the grandson of Hachmoni (compare 1 Chronicles 27:32 ).
lifted up his spear against three hundred slain by him at one time--The feat is said ( 2 Samuel 23:8 ) to have been a slaughter of eight hundred in one day. Some endeavor to reconcile the statements in that passage and in this by supposing that he slew eight hundred on one occasion and three hundred on another; while others conjecture that he attacked a body of eight hundred, and, having slain three hundred of them, the rest fled [LIGHTFOOT].

12. the three mighties--Only two are mentioned; namely, Jashobeam and Eleazar--the third, Shammah ( 2 Samuel 23:11 ), is not named in this passage.

13. He was with David at Pas-dammim--It was at the time when he was a fugitive in the wilderness, and, parched with thirst under the burning heat of noonday, he wistfully thought of the cool fountain of his native village [ 2 Samuel 23:15 , 1 Chronicles 11:17 ]. This is a notice of the achievement, to which Eleazar owed his fame, but the details are found only in 2 Samuel 23:9-11 , where it is further said that he was aided by the valor of Shammah, a fact corroborated in the passage before us ( 1 Chronicles 11:14 ), where it is recorded of the heroes, that "they set themselves in the midst of that parcel." As the singular number is used in speaking of Shammah ( 2 Samuel 23:12 ), the true view seems to be that when Eleazar had given up from exhaustion, Shammah succeeded, and by his fresh and extraordinary prowess preserved the field.
barley--or lentils ( 2 Samuel 23:11 ). Ephes-dammim was situated between Shocoh and Azekah, in the west of the Judahite territory. These feats were performed when David acted as Saul's general against the Philistines.

15-19. David longed, and said, Oh that one would give me drink . . . of the well of chivalrous act evinces the enthusiastic devotion of David's men, that they were ready to gratify his smallest wish at the risk of their lives. It is probable that, when uttering the wish, David had no recollection of the military posted at Beth-lehem. It is generally taken for granted that those who fought a way to the well of Beth-lehem were the three champions just mentioned But this is far from being clear. On the contrary, it would seem that three different heroes are referred to, for Abishai ( 1 Chronicles 11:20 ) was one of them. The camp of the Philistines was in the valley of Rephaim ( 1 Chronicles 11:15 ), which lay on the west of Jerusalem, but an outpost was stationed at Beth-lehem ( 1 Chronicles 11:16 ), and through this garrison they had to force a passage.

21. howbeit he attained not to the first

22. Benaiah . . . of Kabzeel--a town in the south of Judah ( Joshua 15:21 , Nehemiah 11:25 ). It is said that "he had done many acts," though three only are mentioned as specimens of his daring energy and fearless courage.
slew two lionlike men of Moab--literally, "lions of God," that is, great lions or champions. This gallant feat was probably achieved in David's hostile invasion of Moab ( 2 Samuel 8:2 ).
also he went down and slew a lion in a pit in a snowy day--probably a cave into which Benaiah had taken refuge from the snowstorm, and in which he encountered a savage lion which had its lair there. In a spacious cave the achievement would be far greater than if the monster had been previously snared or cabined in a pit.

23. he went down--the ordinary phraseology for expressing an engagement in battle. The encounter of Benaiah with this gigantic Egyptian reminds us, in some respects, of David's combat with Goliath. At least, the height of this giant, which was about eight feet, and his armor, resembled his of Gath.
with a staff--that is, having no other weapon in his hand than his walking stick.

25. David set him over his guard--the Cherethites and Pelethites that composed the small bodyguard in immediate attendance on the king.

26. Also the valiant men of the armies--This was the third degree of military rank, and Asahel was their chief; the names of few of those mentioned are historically known.

27. Shammoth--Between this name and Hebez, that of Elikah has evidently fallen out, as we may see ( 2 Samuel 23:25 2 Samuel 23:26 ) [BERTHEAU].

30. Maharai--chief of the detachment of the guards who attended on the king in the tenth month, January ( 1 Chronicles 27:13 , 2 Samuel 23:28 ).

39. Naharai--armorbearer to Joab ( 2 Samuel 23:37 ). The non-occurrence of Joab's name in any of the three catalogues is most probably to be accounted for by the circumstance that his office as commander-in-chief raised him to a position superior to all these orders of military knighthood.

41. Uriah the Hittite--The enrolment of this name in such a list, attesting, as it does, his distinguished merits as a brave and devoted officer, aggravates the criminality of David's outrage on his life and honor. The number of the names at 1 Chronicles 11:26-41 (exclusive of Asahel and Uriah, who were dead) is thirty, and at 1 Chronicles 11:41-47 is sixteen--making together forty-eight those mentioned ( 1 Chronicles 11:26-41 ), the greater part belonged to the tribes of Judah and Benjamin; the sixteen names ( 1 Chronicles 11:41-47 ) are all associated with places unknown, or with cities and districts on the east of the Jordan. The northern tribes do not appear to have furnished any leaders [BERTHEAU].
