1 Chronicles 5:18 Meaning and Commentary

1 Chronicles 5:18

The sons of Reuben, and the Gadites, and half the tribe of
Manasseh
These all joined together, living together on the one side of Jordan:

of valiant men, men able to bear buckler and sword, and to shoot with
bow, and skilful in war;
strong able bodied men; and not only able to bear and carry arms, sword in one hand, and shield in another; but were men of valour and courage, and had military skill, and knew how to handle their arms to advantage:

[were] four and forty thousand seven hundred and threescore, that went
out to the war:
that used to go out when there was occasion, and did at this time.
