CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
31:27 Two parts - The congregation hath some share, because the warriors went in the name of all, and because all having been injured by the Midianites, all were to have some share in the reparations: but the warriors who were but 12000, have a far greater share than their brethren, because they underwent greater pains and dangers.
"You and Eleazar the priest and the family leaders of each tribe are to make a list of all the plunder taken in the battle, including the people and animals.
he said to them, "Go back to your homes with the great wealth you have taken from your enemies--the vast herds of livestock, the silver, gold, bronze, and iron, and the large supply of clothing. Share the plunder with your relatives."
1 Samuel 30:24
Who will listen when you talk like this? We share and share alike--those who go to battle and those who guard the equipment."
