Wesley's Notes for 1 Chronicles 25:1


25:1 And captains - All the princes of Israel, with the priests andthe Levites, whom David gathered together, chap.#23:2|, for thisvery end, that with their approbation and consent, all these things might beestablished; who are here fitly called the captains of the host; for theprinces were, under David, the chief captains of the militia of thekingdom; and as the Levites are called an host, and the Lord's host,because of their number and order in holy ministrations; so these priestsand Levites were the captains and governors of the rest.Separated - Distributed them into their several ranks: which, tho' chieflydone by David as a prophet, and by Divine direction, yet is imputed inpart to the captains of the host, because it was done with their concurrenceand approbation. The service - To the service of God under the conduct ofthese persons. Prophecy - Praise God by singing the psalms of David,and other sacred songs made by themselves, who were prophets, or by otherprophets or holy men of God. Workmen - Of the persons employed in thissacred work. This good work it seems Samuel revived, but did not liveto bring it to perfection. Let each in his day do what he can for God, tho'he cannot carry it so far as he would. When we are gone, God can raise upothers to build on our foundation, and bring forth the top - stone.
