Definitions for 1-kings 4 :4

Clarke's Commentary on 1-kings 4 :4

Barnes' Commentary on 1-kings 4 :4

It is curious to find Abiathar in this list of princes, after what has been said of his disgrace 1 Kings 2:27, 1 Kings 2:35. Some have supposed that after a while Solomon pardoned him. Perhaps the true explanation is that the historian here enumerates all those who were accounted "princes" in any part of Solomon's reign.

Wesley's Commentary on 1-kings 4 :4

4:4 Priests - That is, the high - priests, successively, first Abiathar, and then Zadok.
