John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Chronicles 2:17

And Solomon numbered all the strangers that were in the land
of Israel
Which, according to Kimchi, were the remains of the Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, and Jebusites, see ( 2 Chronicles 8:8 ) , yet not idolaters, or they would not have been suffered by David and Solomon to have dwelt in the land, but were such as were become proselytes of the gate:

after the numbering wherewith David his father had numbered them;
not at the time Israel was numbered by him, but in order to provide workmen for the building of the temple, ( 1 Chronicles 22:2 ) ,

and they were found an hundred and fifty thousand and six hundred;
men able to bear burdens, and hew timber.
