1 Chronicles 6:60 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

(1 Chronicles 6:39-66). Register of the cities of the Levites, which agrees on the whole with the register in Joshua 21, if we except different forms of some names of cities, and many corruptions of the text, but differing in many ways from it in form; whence we gather that it is not derived from the book of Joshua, but from some other ancient authority.

1 Chronicles 6:54

(6:39). 1 Chronicles 6:54 contains the superscription, "These are their dwelling-places according to their districts, in their boundaries." So far the superscription belongs to the whole catalogue of cities. The suffixes point back to the לוי בּני, 1 Chronicles 6:1. טירה, from טוּר, to surround in a circle, signifies in the older language a "nomad village" (cf. Genesis 25:16; Numbers 31:10); here, on the contrary, it is sued in a derivative sense for "district," to denote the circle of dwellings which were granted to the Levites in the cities of the other tribes. The following words, "For the sons of Aaron of the family of Kohath," etc., are the superscription to 1 Chronicles 6:54-61, and together with the confirmatory clause, "for to him the (first) lot had fallen," are a repetition of Joshua 21:10, where, however, ראשׁנה is found after הגּורל, and has perhaps been here dropped out.

None of the versions give the full number of names, though they all give the whole sum of thirteen; and it is probable that these two cities had been destroyed and lay in ruins when this book was written, and hence were not enumerated.
