20:23–26 This summary of David’s officers parallels the list in 8:15–18, with several differences. The opening formula regarding “David’s reign” (8:15) is lacking, as is any mention of David’s sons (cf. 8:18). Seraiah (8:17) is here called Sheva (v. 25), and two new names are added to the list: Adoram and Ira (vv. 24, 26). 1 Kin. 4:1–6 indicates that many of David’s officers continued in their duties during at least the early part of Solomon’s reign.
