Numbers 4:44 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Completion of the prescribed mustering, and statement of the number of men qualified for service in the three Levitical families: viz., 2750 Kohathites, 2630 Gershonites, and 3200 Merarites - in all, 8580 Levites fit for service: a number which bears a just proportion to the total number of male Levites of a month old and upwards, viz., 22,000.

Numbers 4:44 Parallel Commentaries

Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

The family of Merari, though smaller than either of the other families of Levi, yet had a greater number of able men than any of them; for out of

6200 males of a month old and upwards, we find

3200 who were neither too young nor too old for the service of the sanctuary; which was more than one-half of their whole number. In this the wisdom and providence of God appear most conspicuously; for the Merarites were charged with the heaviest part of the sanctuary, as the boards, bars, sockets, etc; and though waggons were afterwards provided for them, yet the loading and unloading of the sockets, and other things of great weight, would require much strength, both bodily and numerical. Thus God ever manifests his wisdom, in fitting men for the work to which they are appointed, whether with respect to number or gifts; for to one is given, by the Spirit, the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge, by the same Spirit; to another faith, by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing, by the same Spirit; to another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues; but all these worketh that one and the self-same Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

Numbers 3:34 And those that were numbered of them, according to the number of all the males, from a month old and upward...

Deuteronomy 33:25 Your shoes shall be iron and brass; and as your days, so shall your strength be.

1 Corinthians 10:13 There has no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful...

1 Corinthians 12:8-12 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit...

2 Corinthians 12:9,10 And he said to me, My grace is sufficient for you: for my strength is made perfect in weakness...
