2 Samuel 23:39 Meaning and Commentary

2 Samuel 23:39

Uriah the Hittite
The husband of Bathsheba; of whom (See Gill on 2 Samuel 11:3);

thirty and seven all;
reckoning the three mighty men of the first class, the three of the second, and the third class consisting of thirty men, whose names are as above, and Joab the general and head of them all. In ( 1 Chronicles 11:41 ) , Zabad the son of Ahlai follows Uriah as one of this catalogue; he succeeding in honour one that soon died, particularly Elika, ( 2 Samuel 23:25 ) , who is omitted in Chronicles, where a list of fifteen more is given, ( 1 Chronicles 11:42-47 ) ; at the head of which stands Adina a Reubenite, "and thirty" are said to be "with him", according to our version; but should be rendered, as by Junius and Tremellius, "but the thirty were superior to him", that is, the above thirty; for these fifteen, though brave men, were of lesser note.
