Sutcliffe's Commentary on the Old and New Testaments

1 Chronicles 26

 

 

Verses 1-32

1 Chronicles 26:28. Joab had dedicated the spoils of war. Cyrus set apart the tenth of all his spoils for the gods. It was much the same among the Jews: in a line from Abraham, who gave the tenths to Melchizedek, to Samuel, Saul, Abner, David, and his captains, we find a part of their wealth dedicated to the Lord. It was also our Saxon fathers who built the churches; yet we grumble and murmur at every penny we give to God’s cause, because we do not love him, nor his ministers as we ought.
