    Barnes' Notes on 2 Chronicles 23:2

    Jehoiada was unwilling to trust the success of the revolution wholly and entirely to the royal body-guard. Accordingly, the captains collected from the cities of Judah a strong body of Levites and the chief of the fathers of Israel (i. e. "Judah," see 2 Chronicles 20:34 note) who were brought up to Jerusalem.
