1 Chronicles 26:15 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
The whole number of doorkeepers of Obed-edom's family, his sons and brethren, was sixty-two; able men with strength for the service. The singular חיל אישׁ, after the preceding plural, is most simply explained by taking it to be in apposition to the כּל at the beginning of the verse, by repeating כּל mentally before אישׁ. - In 1 Chronicles 26:9 the number of Meshelemiah's sons and brothers is brought in in a supplementary way.
