John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Chronicles 9:13

Able men — Heb. mighty men of valour: which is here noted as an excellent qualification for their place; because the priests might meet with great opposition in the discharge of their office, in the execution of the censures upon all impure persons without exception, and in preserving sacred things from violation by the touch of forbidden hands.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

And their brethren, heads of the house of their fathers, a thousand and seven hundred and threescore; very able men for the (d) work of the service of the house of God.
