Wesley's Notes for 1 Chronicles 27:31


27:31 All these - It is observable, here are no officers for state,none for sport, no master of the ceremonies, or of the bounds, but allfor substance, agreeable to the simplicity and plainness of those times.David was a great soldier, a great scholar, and a great prince; andyet a great husband of his estate. Those magistrates who would havetheir subjects industrious, must themselves be examples of applicationto business.


Discussion for 1 Chronicles 27

  • Mary Atkinson

    The emphasis is on Israel's unity under David.Davids mighty men were the 1st groups to go out on duty in the service of the king.
    The same way we need to be today we need to have unity serving God!Because divided we are falling so quickly!God's saints are his mighty men that need to go before the unsaved to show them a better way....
