Matthew Henry's Complete Commentary - 1 Chronicles 3:10-24

David having nineteen sons, we may suppose them to have raised many noble families in Israel whom we never hear of in the history. But the scripture gives us an account only of the descendants of Solomon here, and of Nathan, Luke 3:31 The rest had the honour to be the sons of David; but these only had the honour to be related to the Messiah. The sons of Nathan were his fathers as man, the sons of Solomon his predecessors as king. We have here, 1. The great and celebrated names by which the... read more

The Pulpit Commentary - 1 Chronicles 3:10

Though the Authorized Version has Abia the Hebrew word is אֲבִיָּה both here and in 2 Chronicles 13:1 , 23 (or Authorized Version, 2 Chronicles 14:1 ), in both of which passages, as also elsewhere, our Authorized Version has Abijah. Another form is Abijam ( אֲבִיָּם ), as in 1 Kings 14:31 and elsewhere. A corrupt form ( אֲבִיָּחוּ ) is found in 2 Chronicles 13:20 . We have the name in the New Testament genealogy ( Matthew 1:7 , Matthew 1:8 ). read more

The Pulpit Commentary - 1 Chronicles 3:10-16

The line of royal descent from David, is now rapidly carried down in these verses—first , as far as good King Josiah, sixteen generations in all (omitting, quite consistently, Athalia, who reigned by her own usurpation for six years on the death of her son Azariah); and then, by four successions (viz. two brothers, sons of Josiah, and a grandson and great-grandson of Josiah), to the Captivity. read more

Bridgeway Bible Commentary - 1 Chronicles 3:1-24

Descendants of Judah and Simeon (2:1-4:43)Having listed the children of Jacob (Israel) starting with the eldest son Reuben, the writer immediately turns his attention to the tribe of Judah, the tribe that produced the dynasty of David (2:1-17). He traces the line of David first, then goes back to deal with a number of other important people in Judah and lists their descendants (18-55). On completing this, he returns to list the family of David (3:1-9), the descendants of David who reigned after... read more

Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible - 1 Chronicles 3:10

10. Solomon's son was Rehoboam, &c.—David's line is here drawn down to the captivity, through a succession of good and bad, but still influential and celebrated, monarchs. It has rarely happened that a crown has been transmitted from father to son, in lineal descent, for seventeen reigns. But this was the promised reward of David's piety. There is, indeed, observable some vacillation towards the close of this period—the crown passing from one brother to another, an even from uncle to... read more
