1 Chronicles 5:19 Meaning and Commentary

1 Chronicles 5:19

And they made war with the Hagarites
Before mentioned, ( 1 Chronicles 5:19 )

with Jetur, and Nephish:
with the posterity of these men, who were sons of Ishmael, ( Genesis 25:15 ) and so was Nodab; perhaps the same with Kedemah, mentioned along with the other two there; so Hillerus F26 thinks.

1 Chronicles 5:19 In-Context

17 They were all written into the official family tree during the reigns of Jotham king of Judah and Jeroboam king of Israel.
18 The families of Reuben, Gad, and the half-tribe of Manasseh had 44,760 men trained for war - physically fit and skilled in handling shield, sword, and bow.
19 They fought against the Hagrites, Jetur, Naphish, and Nodab.
20 God helped them as they fought. God handed the Hagrites and all their allies over to them, because they cried out to him during the battle. God answered their prayers because they trusted him.
21 They plundered the Hagrite herds and flocks: 50,000 camels, 250,000 sheep, and 2,000 donkeys. They also captured 100,000 people.
