Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Chronicles 26:17-19

_ _ Eastward were six Levites — because the gate there was the most frequented. There were four at the north gate; four at the south, at the storehouse which was adjoining the south, and which had two entrance gates, one leading in a southwesterly direction to the city, and the other direct west, two porters each. At the Parbar towards the west, there were six men posted — four at the causeway or ascent (1 Chronicles 26:16), and two at Parbar, amounting to twenty-four in all, who were kept daily on guard.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Chronicles 26:1-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Chronicles 26:17

Six — For that being the chief gate of the temple required a better guard.
