James Gray

James Gray's Concise Bible Commentary - 1 Chronicles 2:1-55

GENEALOGIES AND PEDIGREES INTRODUCTION With this begins the study of those historical books of the Old Testament written shortly after the return from the Babylonian captivity, the remainder of the series including 2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther. “Chronicles” means “diaries” or “journal,” and the books recapitulate sacred history from the time of Adam, in which the earlier books of the Old Testament are drawn upon and occasionally supplemented. The Holy Spirit, who is the real... read more

Joseph Parker

The People's Bible by Joseph Parker - 1 Chronicles 2:1-55

The Sons of Israel: Their Genealogy Typical Sinners 1 Chronicles 2:0 All this elaborate tracing of family lines shows that the historian is about to conduct his enquiries upon a complete and exact basis. We acquire confidence in the man by the minuteness of the very details, which at first taxes both our patience and our memory. The names may be so read as to constitute only an elaborate catalogue, in which case the spirit of unity would be lost, and the whole process would end in nothingness... read more

Robert Hawker

Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary - 1 Chronicles 2:15-55

If the Reader be desirous to attend to the history of some of the persons here registered, he will find an account of them elsewhere in the Bible. But many of them are only mentioned in this record, and that only with a view to preserve the genealogy of their family. Bezaleel is honourably spoken of, Exodus 31:2 . Hezron was one of the threescore and ten souls of Jacob's household that went down into Egypt. Genesis 46:10 . Jair we have an account of; Numbers 32:41 . But, it should seem, that... read more

Kindred. Septuagint, "Oumasphas." (Haydock) --- Esthaolites. All these places were in Juda, (Calmet) or perhaps (Haydock) the two last in Dan, (Menochius) or occupied by both tribes. (Abulensis, q. 8.) read more

Paul E. Kretzmann

The Popular Commentary by Paul E. Kretzmann - 1 Chronicles 2:18-55

The Genealogy of Caleb v. 18. And Caleb, the son of Hezron, v. 9, begat children of Azubah, his wife, and of Jerioth, who seems to have been a secondary wife, whose children were reckoned as those of Azubah; her sons are these: Jesher, and Shobab, and Ardon. v. 19. And when Azubah, his rightful spouse, was dead, Caleb took unto him Ephrath, which bare him Hur. v. 20. And Hur begat Uri, and Uri begat Bezaleel. v. 21. And afterward Hezron went in to the daughter of Machir, the father of... read more

G. Campbell Morgan

G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible - 1 Chronicles 2:1-55

Still the same method is manifest. The twelve sons of Israel are mentioned. All of them are subsequently referred to, with the exception of Dan and Zebulun, of whose descendants this chronicler gives no account. The direct line of interest in tracing the divine method passes through Judah. The process of exclusion still goes forward on the principles of character. Er, the firstborn, is slain because of his evil, and Achar likewise. Some lines of descent excluded are again traced, and for the... read more
