mighty men

2 Chronicles 17:13
And he had much business in the cities of Judah: and the men of war, mighty men of valour, were in Jerusalem.









(11) All these the sons of Jediael.--Render, "All these were sons of Jediael; (according) to the heads of the clans, valiant warriors; 17,200 going out in host to the battle." Perhaps the particle (according to) should be omitted. In any case, the chiefs or the clans are regarded as one with their warriors.

The sum of the warriors of Benjamin is thus 54,434. The Mosaic census (Numbers 26:41) gave 45,600. An increase of barely 14,000 in the course of atleast three centuries may seem too small. But the tribe was well-nigh exterminated in the vengeance which Israel took for the crime of Gibeah (Judges 20:47).
