    Barnes' Notes on 1 Chronicles 9:9

    The discrepancy between the numbers here and in Nehemiah Neh 11:8 may arise from corruption. So in 1 Chronicles 9:13, 1 Chronicles 9:22.

    Wesley's Notes on 1 Chronicles 9:9

    9:9 And fifty - six - They are reckoned but nine hundred and twenty - eight in Neh 11:8, either because there he mentions only those that were by lot determined to dwell at Jerusalem, to whom he here adds those who freely offered themselves to it; or because some of the persons first placed there were dead, or removed from Jerusalem upon some emergent occasion.
