Numbers 3:32

_ _ chief — rather, “chiefs” of the Levites. Three persons are mentioned as chiefs of these respective divisions [Numbers 3:24, Numbers 3:30, Numbers 3:35]. And Eleazar presided over them; whence he is called “the second priest” (2 Kings 25:18); and in the case of the high priest’s absence from illness or other necessary occasions, he performed the duties (1 Kings 4:4).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 3:14-39.
