Whedon's Commentary on the Bible

1 Chronicles 11

This chapter is parallel with 2 Samuel 5:1-10; 2 Samuel 23:8-39; and the reader is referred to the comments on those passages. The text in the one book often supplements and throws light on its parallel in the other. The chronicler, with noticeable fondness for preserving genealogies and lists of Israelitish worthies, inserts this catalogue of David’s mighty men here, (1 Chronicles 11:10-47,) inasmuch as they had so much to do in establishing him in his kingdom. Such is the import of 1 Chronicles 11:10, “who strengthened themselves with him in his kingdom, and with all Israel, to make him king.” That is, they stood firmly by him and maintained his cause during all the trying periods of his reign, as well as at the time when he was made king.
