Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Chronicles 24:4

_ _ there were more chief men found — The Hebrew may be translated, “There were more men as to heads of the sons of Eleazar.” It is true, in point of fact, that by the census the number of individuals belonging to the family of Eleazar was found greater than in that of Ithamar. And this, of necessity, led to there being more fathers’ houses, and consequently more chiefs or presidents in the former.
