Peake's Commentary on the Bible

1 Chronicles 18

Verses 1-17

1 Chronicles 18:1-17 . David’ s Wars (see notes on 2 Samuel 8).— Gath and her towns: lit. “ and her daughters” ; in 2 Samuel 8:1 the words “ the bridle of the mother city” are probably corrupt.

1 Chronicles 18:17 . the sons of David were chief about the king: the words in 2 Samuel 8:18, “ and David’ s sons were priests,” were altered by the Chronicler, who held that only the descendants of Aaron could be priests.
