      1  The divisions of the porters.
    13  The gates assigned by lot.
    20  The Levites that had charge of the treasures.
    29  Officers and judges.
    
    
    VERSE 1
    - the divisions.
      There were four classes of these, each of which belonged to
      the four gates of the temple, which opened to the four
      cardinal points of heaven.  The eastern gate fell to
      Shelemiah; the northern to Zechariah, (ver. 14;) the southern
      to Obed-edom, (ver. 15;) and the western to Shuppim and Hosah,
      (ver. 16.)  These several persons were captains of these
      porter-bands, or door-keepers, at the different gates.  There
      were probably a thousand men under each of these captains; as
      we find, from ch. 5 23:5, that their whole number was four
      thousand.
    
    - the porters.
       * 1Ch 9:17-27; 15:18,23,24 2Ch 23:19
    - Korhites.
       * Nu 26:9-11 Ps 44:1; 49:1 *titles
    - Meshelemiah.
      [Shelemyhuw <\\S#8018h\\>,] Shelemiah, is merely an abbrev. 
      of [Meshelemyh <\\S#4920h\\>,] Meshelemiah, by the aph'resis 
      of [Mm,] {mem.}
    
       * :14
    - Shelemiah.  Asaph.
      This variation arises from the rejection of the word [Ab
      <\\S#1h\\>,] {av,} "father," and the mutation of [Y"wd,]
      {yood,} into ['Aleph,] {aleph;} being written in the parallel
      passages [Ebycph <\\S#43h\\>,] Ebiasaph, and here [Acph
      <\\S#623h\\>,] Asaph.
    
       * 1Ch 6:37; 9:19
    - Ebiasaph.

     - Zechariah.  i.e., remembered by Jah.
       * Zec 1:1
    - Jediael.  i.e., known of God.
       * 1Ch 7:6
    - Zebadiah.  i.e., the gift of Jehovah; the Lord is my portion;
      given of the Lord; endowed of Jehovah.  <\\S#2069h\\>.
       * :2 2Ch 17:8; 19:11

       * Ps 128:1
    
    
    VERSE 6 
     - mighty men of valour.
      They were not only porters, or door keepers, in the ordinary
      sense of the word, but they were a military guard to the gate,
      as Dr. Delaney suggests that the word {sh"rim} should be
      rendered here:  and perhaps in this sense alone are we to
      understand their office, which appears to have been of
      considerable dignity, and conferred only on men of the first
      rank.  They were appointed to attend the temple, to guard all
      the avenues to it, to open and shut all the outer gates, and
      attend at them, not only for state but for service.  They were
      also required to direct and instruct those who were going to
      worship in the courts of the sanctuary in the conduct they
      were to observe, to encourage those who were timid, to send
      back the strangers and unclean, and to guard against thieves
      and others who were enemies to the house of God.

       * 2Ch 26:17 Ne 11:14 1Ti 6:12 2Ti 2:3

      seasonable speaking.  <\\S#6273h\\>.

       * 1Sa 1:1
    - Semachiah.  i.e., Jah sustains; cleaving; sustained of the
      Lord.  <\\S#5565h\\>.
    
    
    VERSE 8 
     - able men.
       * Mt 25:15 1Co 12:4-11 2Co 3:6 1Pe 4:11
    
    
    VERSE 9 
     - Meshelemiah.
       * :1,14
    
    
    VERSE 10

       * 1Ch 5:1,2
    
    
    VERSE 11 
     - Hilkiah.  i.e., portion of Jah.
       * 2Ki 18:18
    - Tebaliah.  i.e., goodness of God; dipped of Jehovah; whom
      Jehovah has purified.  <\\S#2882h\\>.
      Strong in the lexicon to his exhaustive concordance gives the
      definition for this name:  "Jah has dipped."  John Ritchie in
      his Scripture Proper Names gives "Immersed of God,
      (purified)."  The Hebrew word {tabal} (<\\S#2881h\\>, Ex 12:22)
      favors the definition "dip," often merely meaning to
      "moisten."
    
    - Zechariah.  i.e., remembered of Jah.
       * Zec 1:1
    
    
    VERSE 12 
     - wards.
      That is, classes against each other.  Ward formerly signified
      a class or division:  we still apply the term to the different
      apartments in hospitals, and to the more extensive districts
      into which the city of London is divided.
    
    - See on ch.
       * 1Ch 25:8
    
    
    VERSE 13 
     - as well the small as the great.  Heb. or, as well for the
      small as for the great.
       * 1Ch 24:31; 25:8
    
    
    VERSE 14 
     - Shelemiah.
       * :1
    - Meshelemiah.  Zechariah.
       * :2
    
    
    VERSE 15 
     - Asuppim.  Heb. gatherings.  <\\S#624h\\>.
       * :17 2Ch 25:24 Ne 12:25 Ec 12:11
      Or collections; probably the place where either the supplies
      of the porters, or the offerings made for the priests and
      Levites, were laid up.  Obed-edom is said to have had the
      charge of the treasures, etc., in 2 Ch 24 25:24.
    
    
    VERSE 16 
     - Hosah.
       * :10,11
    - Shallecheth.
      That is, ejection; probably the gate through which all the
      filth which from time to time might accumulate in the temple
      and its courts, was cast out.
    
    - causeway.
       * 1Ki 10:5 2Ch 9:4
    - ward against ward.
      That is, their stations were opposite to each other; as the
      north to the south, and the east to the west.
    
       * :12; 25:8 Ne 12:24
    
    
    VERSE 17 
     - Eastward.
       * 1Ch 9:24 2Ch 8:14
    - Asuppim.
       * :15
    
    
    VERSE 18 
     - Parbar.  i.e., the outside place; he annulled the corn; a
      quarter of Jerusalelm (Strong).  <\\S#6503h\\>.
       * :18
    - Also
       * 2Ki 23:11
      {Parbar} is most probably the same as {parwar,} which denotes
      suburbs, (2 Ki 11 23:11,) in which sense it is often used in the
      Chaldee Targums; and consequently this may be considered as
      leading to the suburbs.
    
    
    VERSE 19 
     - Kore.
      Kore, or rather, Kohri, [Qorchy <\\S#7145h\\>,] is
      essentially the same with [Q"rach <\\S#7141h\\>,] Korah,
      merely having a paragogic [Y"wd,] {yood.}
    
       * Nu 16:11
    - Korah.
    
    
    VERSE 20 
     - treasures.
       * :22; 9:26-30; 22:3,4,14-16; 28:12-19; 29:2-8 1Ki 14:26; 15:18
       * Mal 3:10
    - dedicated things.  Heb. holy things.
       * :26-28; 18:11 1Ki 7:51 2Ch 31:11,12

     - Laadan.
       * 1Ch 6:17
    - Libni.
       * 1Ch 23:7
    
    
    VERSE 22 
     - Jehieli.
      Jehieli, [Yechy'ly <\\S#3172h\\>,] is the same as Jehiel,
      [Yechav'l <\\S#3171h\\>,] with the addition of [Y"wd,]
      {yood.}
    
       * 1Ch 23:8; 29:8

       * 1Ch 23:12 Nu 3:19,27
    
    
    VERSE 24 
     - Shebuel.
      The difference between [Sh-wb'l <\\S#7619h\\>,] Shubael, and
      [Shb-w'l <\\S#7619h\\>,] Shebuel, simply arises from the
      elision of [Vv,] {wav} and a change of vowels.
    
       * 1Ch 23:15,16; 24:20
    - Shubael.
    
    
    VERSE 25

       * 2Ch 19:11
      There were more Levites employed as judges with the two tribes
      and half on the other side of Jordan, than with all the rest
      of the tribes; there were two thousand seven hundred, whereas
      on the west side of Jordan there were only one thousand seven
      hundred.  Either those remote tribes were not so well
      furnished as the rest with judges of their own, or because
      they lay farthest from Jerusalem, on the borders of the
      neighboring nations, and were thus much in danger of being
      infected with idolatry, they most needed the help of Levites
      to prevent their running into the abominations of the
      idolaters.
