1 Chronicles 23:2 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

David then turns to the workmen, the carpenters and stone-cutters, whom he had appointed (1 Chronicles 22:2) for the building. חצבים, properly hewers, in 1 Chronicles 22:2 limited to stone-hewers, is here, with the addition ועץ אבן חרשׁי, used of the workers in stone and wood, stonemasons and carpenters. כּל־חכם, all manner of understanding persons in each work, in contradistinction to מלעכה עשׁי, includes the idea of thorough mastery and skill in the kind of labour. These workmen, whom David had levied for the building of the temple, are mentioned by Solomon, 2 Chronicles 2:6. - In 1 Chronicles 22:16 all the metals, as being the main thing, are again grouped together, in order that the exhortation to proceed with the erection of the building may be introduced. The ל before each word serves to bring the thing once more into prominence; cf. Ew. 310, a. "As for the gold, it cannot be numbered." "Arise and be doing! and Jahve be with thee" (1 Chronicles 22:17-19).
