Whedon's Commentary on the Bible

1 Chronicles 13

The contents of this chapter coincide with 2 Samuel 6:1-11, where see notes. This narrative, however, adds to that of Samuel in the mention of David’s consulting with his captains, and assembling all Israel “from Shihor of Egypt even unto the entering of He-math,” 1 Chronicles 13:5. Shihor is probably the Wady el Arish, (see on Joshua 13:3,) and on “the entering of Hemath,” see note on Joshua 13:5.

Verse 9

9. Threshingfloor of Chidon The reading in 2 Samuel 6:6, is Nachon’s threshingfloor. Chidon may be another name for Nachon, or it may be a corruption of the name Nachon, נכון כידון .
