    Barnes' Notes on 1 Chronicles 12:1

    This chapter is composed wholly of matter that is new to us, no corresponding accounts occurring in Samuel. It comprises four lists:

    (1) One of men, chiefly Benjamites, who joined David at Ziklag 1 Chronicles 12:1-7;

    (2) A second of Gadites who united themselves to him when he was in a stronghold near the desert 1 Chronicles 12:8-15;

    (3) A third of Manassites who came to him when he was dismissed by the Philistines upon suspicion 1 Chronicles 12:19-22; and

    (4) A fourth of the numbers from the different tribes who attended and made him king at Hebron 1 Chronicles 12:23-40.
