Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Chronicles 6:61

_ _ unto the sons of Kohath, which were left — that is, in addition to the priests belonging to the same family and tribe of Levi.

_ _ by lot, ten cities — (Joshua 21:26). The sacred historian gives an explanation (1 Chronicles 6:66). Eight of these are mentioned, but only two of them are taken out of the half tribe of Manasseh (1 Chronicles 6:70). The names of the other two are given (Joshua 21:21), where full and detailed notices of these arrangements may be found.
