We have here an account of the business of the
Levites. That tribe had made but a very small figure all the time
of the judges, till Eli and Samuel appeared. But when David revived
religion the Levites were, of all men, in the greatest reputation.
And happy it was that they had Levites who were men of sense, fit
to support the honour of their tribe. We have here an account, I.
Of the Levites that were appointed to be porters, ver. 1-19. II. Of those that were
appointed to be treasurers and storekeepers, ver. 20-28. III. Of those that were
officers and judges in the country, and were entrusted with the
administration of public affairs, ver. 29-32.
