2 Samuel 23:37

Zelek the Ammonite, Nahari the Beerothite, armourbearer to Joab the son of Zeruiah,

Zelek the Ammonite,.... Who was so either by birth, and became a proselyte; so the Targum says, he was of the children of Ammon; or is so called, because he had sojourned some time in their land, or had done some exploits against them; unless he was of Chepharhaammonai, a city of the tribe of Benjamin, Joshua 18:24;

Naharai the Beerothite; native of Beeroth, a city in the same tribe, Joshua 18:25;

armourbearer to Joab the son of Zeruiah; Joab had ten of them, this perhaps was the chief of them, 2 Samuel 18:15; who was advanced to be a captain, and therefore has a name and place among the thirty, very likely for some military, exploits performed by him; he is in the list of David's worthies, though not Joab his master, as before observed; the reason of Joab being left out is either because he was over them all, as before noted; according to Josephus {t}, Uriah the Hittite, after mentioned, was an armourbearer to Joab.
