Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Chronicles 27:31

_ _ rulers of the substance that was king David’s — How and when the king acquired these demesnes and this variety of property — whether it was partly by conquests, or partly by confiscation, or by his own active cultivation of waste lands — is not said. It was probably in all these ways. The management of the king’s private possessions was divided into twelve parts, like his public affairs and the revenue derived from all these sources mentioned must have been very large.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Chronicles 27:16-34.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Chronicles 27:31

All these — It is observable, here are no officers for state, none for sport, no master of the ceremonies, or of the bounds, but all for substance, agreeable to the simplicity and plainness of those times. David was a great soldier, a great scholar, and a great prince; and yet a great husband of his estate. Those magistrates who would have their subjects industrious, must themselves be examples of application to business.
