2 In charge of the first division, for the first month, was Jashobeam son of Zabdiel. There were 24,000 men in his division.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on 1 Chronicles 27:2

Commentary on 1 Chronicles 27:1-15

(Read 1 Chronicles 27:1-15)

In the kingdoms of this world readiness for war forms a security for peace; in like manner, nothing so much encourages Satan's assaults as to be unwatchful. So long as we stand armed with the whole armour of God, in the exercise of faith, and preparation of heart for the conflict, we shall certainly be safe, and probably enjoy inward peace.
