And of the Hebronites, Hashabiah and his brethren, men
valour, a thousand and seven hundred
And supposing the Izharites in the preceding verse to be 1600, these, with those on the other side Jordan, 2700, ( 1 Chronicles 26:32 ) make up just the 6000 officers and judges, ( 1 Chronicles 23:4 ) these
were officers among them of Israel on this side Jordan
in those parts of the land which were on this side Jordan, to the west of it, yet nearer to it than those meant by Israel in the preceding verse; it may respect those that dwelt more remote from Jordan, though on this side also, towards the Mediterranean sea:
in all business of the Lord, and in the service of the
king; in things
divine and civil, what appertained to the worship of God, and the support of civil government, and to take care that all the laws were observed, moral, ceremonial, and judicial, and that both the Lord was feared, and the king honoured, and both had what was due unto them.
