    Barnes' Notes on 1 Chronicles 11:6

    The narrative here given fills out a manifest defect in 2 Samuel 5:8 where something has evidently dropped out of the text.

    The prowess of Joab on this occasion, and the part which he took in the building of the city of David 1 Chronicles 11:8, are known to us only from this passage of Chronicles.
