Arno Gaebelein's Annotated Bible - 1 Chronicles 24:1-31

3. The Twenty-four Courses of the Priests CHAPTER 24 1. The twenty-four courses (1 Chronicles 24:1-19 ) 2. The organization of other Levites (1 Chronicles 24:20-31 ) In the previous chapter we read of 24,000 Levites set apart for the service. In the next chapter we find twenty-four leaders of song and music appointed, and here David instituted twenty-four courses of priests. Each of these ministered a full week, from one sabbath to the next. These courses were not only continued by... read more

James Gray

James Gray's Concise Bible Commentary - 1 Chronicles 24:1-31

DAVID ’S REIGN THE DOWNFALL OF SAUL (1 Chronicles 10:0 ) In reading this chapter with whose general contents we became familiar in 1 Samuel 31:0 , it is important to note the inspired comment at its close (1 Chronicles 10:13-14 ). DAVID’S HEROES (1 Chronicles 11-12) In the history of David in this book, the writer dwells chiefly on its prosperous side, passing over the rest as lightly as possible. His anointing at Hebron (1 Chronicles 11:1-3 ) reveals nothing of what we learned earlier of... read more

Joseph Parker

The People's Bible by Joseph Parker - 1 Chronicles 24:1-31

Gleanings 1 Chronicles 24-26 FROM the twenty-fourth chapter to the end of the book we find much that cannot be turned to spiritual profit, yet here and there we come upon single expressions which are very significant and beautiful. What we lose in continuity, therefore, we may gain in single values. Continuity is not the only excellence to be studied. The string is continuous, but the pearls which are hung upon it are single. Do not despise a single stone, a single flower, a single ear of... read more

Robert Hawker

Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary - 1 Chronicles 24:20-31

How particular the Holy Ghost is in the enumeration of the names of God's servants! Reader, depend upon it, the least and most inconsiderable in God's house is neither overlooked nor forgotten by him. read more

George Haydock

George Haydock's Catholic Bible Commentary - 1 Chronicles 24:26

The son. Hebrew, "the son of Jehasia, or of Oziau...." But the name of this son is lost. It is wonderful that the posterity of Gersom are passed over. (Calmet) --- Protestants, "the sons of Jaaziah; Beno. --- 27. The sons of Merari, by Jaaziah; Beno, and Shoam." (Haydock) --- Septuagint vary, and the original text is supposed to be changed by some transcriber, (Capel. &c.) as we read only of Moholi and Musi, ver. 26., and chap. xxiii. 21. read more

Paul E. Kretzmann

The Popular Commentary by Paul E. Kretzmann - 1 Chronicles 24:20-31

Genealogy of the Rest of Levi's Sons v. 20.

Johann Peter Lange

Lange's Commentary on the Holy Scriptures: Critical, Doctrinal and Homiletical - 1 Chronicles 24:1-31

For the Chapter 24 passage and footnotes, see 1 Chronicles 23:1 ff.4. The Twenty-four Classes of Priests: 1 Chronicles 24:1-19.—The enumeration of these follows quite suitably after the foregoing passage, particularly after 1 Chronicles 23:32; comp. the “sons of Aaron” with that in 1 Chronicles 24:1 of our chapter.—The sons of Aaron: Nadab and Abihu, etc. Comp. on this introduction to the Davidic regulations referring to the Mosaic time in 1 Chronicles 24:1-2, 1 Chronicles 24:1 Chronicles 5:29,... read more

G. Campbell Morgan

G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible - 1 Chronicles 24:1-31

With great care and perfect democracy of choice the courses of the priests were next set in order. There was a tactful mingling in the arrangement of the older and the younger men, so that in this highest and holiest national service the experience of age and the enthusiasm of youth were naturally inspiring. A description of these men in this chapter is very suggestive. They are called "princes of the sanctuary and princes of God." In neither half of the description is there any thought of... read more

Arthur Peake

Arthur Peake's Commentary on the Bible - 1 Chronicles 24:1-31

1 Chronicles 24:1-Psalms : . The courses of the priests (the sons of Aaron), twenty-four in number, took their turns in the service of the Temple, and each course cast lots for the particular place of service of each priest ( cf. Luke 1:8 f.). 1 Chronicles 24:20-Obadiah : . Another list of Levites; this is probably from a later hand; the names coincide to a large extent with those already given in 1 Chronicles 23:7-Isaiah :, though some new ones are added. read more
