1 Kings 4:6

_ _ Ahishar was over the household — steward or chamberlain of the palace.

_ _ Adoniram — or Adoram (2 Samuel 20:24; 1 Kings 12:18), or Hadoram (2 Chronicles 10:18),

_ _ was over the tribute — not the collection of money or goods, but the levy of compulsory laborers (compare 1 Kings 5:13, 1 Kings 5:14).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Kings 4:1-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 4:6

Abiathar was — Steward of the king's household. Tribute — The personal tribute, or the levy of men, as appears by comparing this with 1 Kings 5:13-14, it being very fit that there should be some one person to whom the chief conduct of that great business was committed.
