1 Kings 4:12 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Ahishar was הבּית על, over the palace, i.e., governor of the palace, or minister of the king's household (compare 1 Kings 16:9; 2 Kings 18:18, and Isaiah 22:15), an office met with for the first time under Solomon. Adoniram, probably the same person as Adoram in 2 Samuel 20:24, was chief overseer of the tributary service. He was so in the time of David also.
