Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Chronicles 21:5

_ _ Joab gave the sum of the number of the children of Israel — It amounted to one million one hundred thousand men in Israel, capable of bearing arms, inclusive of the three hundred thousand military (1 Chronicles 27:1-9), which, being already enlisted in the royal service, were not reckoned (2 Samuel 24:9), and to four hundred seventy thousand men in Judah, omitting thirty thousand which formed an army of observation stationed on the Philistine frontier (2 Samuel 6:1). So large a population at this early period, considering the limited extent of the country and comparing it with the earlier census (Numbers 26:1-65), is a striking proof of the fulfillment of the promise (Genesis 15:5).

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Chronicles 21:5

And Joab gave the sum of the number of the people unto David. And all [they of] Israel were (d) a thousand thousand and an hundred thousand men that drew sword: and Judah [was] (e) four hundred threescore and ten thousand men that drew sword.

(d) Joab partly for grief and partly through negligence gathered not the whole sum as it is here declared.

(e) In Samuel 30,000 more are mentioned, which was either by joining to them some of the Benjamites who were mixed with Judah, or as the Hebrews write, here the chief and princes are left out.
