Bible Commentary for 1 Chronicles 21:8

Wesley's Notes for 1 Chronicles 21:8


21:6 Counted not - Partly for the following reason; and principallyby God's gracious providence to Levi, because they were devoted to hisservice; and to Benjamin, because they were the least of all the tribes,having been almost extinct, #Judg 21:6|, and because God foresaw thatthey would be faithful to the house of David in the division of thetribes, and therefore he would not have them diminished. And Joab alsopresumed to leave these two tribes unnumbered, because he had speciouspretences for it; for Levi, because they were no warriors, and theking's command reached only of those that drew sword. And forBenjamin, because they, being so small a tribe, and bordering uponJerusalem, might easily be numbered afterward.

21:7 Displeased - Because this was done without any colour ofnecessity, and out of mere curiosity, and ostentation.
