G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible - 1 Chronicles 4:1-43

Here another line from Judah is traced, and must be viewed in the light of the royalty manifest in David. It is the story of the multiplication and settlement of the people who became workers in the great kingdom. Thus we have the descent of such as became workers in fine linen, of the potters, and also of the king's workmen. Two verses of this section tell the story of one man, and of how he, by prayer and obedience, obtained the favor of God. Incidentally, the story is full of interest. In... read more

Matthew Poole's English Annotations on the Holy Bible - 1 Chronicles 4:43

The rest of the Amalekites; not destroyed by Saul, or David, or his successors. Unto this day; either, 1. Until the captivity of the ten tribes. But that happening so speedily after this time, this expression may seem to be very improper and insignificant here. Or rather, 2. Until the Babylonish captivity, or the time next after it, when these books were written. For although the main body of that tribe dwelling in Canaan were carried into captivity, yet this small remnant of them having... read more

Preacher's Complete Homiletical Commentary - 1 Chronicles 4:1-43

CRITICAL NOTES.] Obscurity often arising from brevity conspicuous in this passage. Yet we discern an order in it, indicated in first verse. It contains descendants of Shobal, Hur, Carmi, Hezron, and of Pharez. The section chiefly of local interest, intended to point out founders of some of the towns in the province of Judah [Murphy]. Reaiah conjectured to be same as Haroeh, 1 Chronicles 2:52.1 Chronicles 4:3-4. Descendants of Hur. Father, i.e., joint founders of Etam, a town on rocky hills of... read more

Chuck Smith Bible Commentary - 1 Chronicles 4:1-43

Chapter 4In chapter four, we follow another line from Caleb through one of his sons called Er. And you get a different line of Caleb from that which was earlier given. Now in this particular line in verse nine, as we've been listing a lot of names, suddenly he pauses on one fellow who stands out. Now in all of these names, suddenly you get a man and he stands out. Now why does one stand out above the other?Jabez was more honourable than his brothers: and his mother called his name Jabez,... read more

Joseph Sutcliffe

Sutcliffe's Commentary on the Old and New Testaments - 1 Chronicles 4:1-43

1 Chronicles 4:9 . Jabez, dolour, grief, anguish. He was honourable; the same with Othniel, according to the Targumists. 1 Chronicles 4:22 . Jokim, &c. These four probably resided in Moab, about the time of Elimelech. Ruth 1:2. REFLECTIONS. In the vast line of great men and of princes, mentioned in the tribe of Judah, no one here claims so particular attention as Jabez. He was more honourable than his brethren. They, as well as he, were princes by birth; and though he might excel... read more
