James Gray's Concise Bible Commentary - 1 Chronicles 6:1-81

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

The People's Bible by Joseph Parker - 1 Chronicles 6:1-81

Aaron Eleazar Unknown Workers Religious Uses of Music 1 Chronicles 6:0 This chapter traces the line of Aaron through Eleazar to Jeho-zadak. The chronicler takes infinite pains to trace the genealogy of Aaron from the period of his descent from Levi through his successors in the line of Eleazar until the Babylonian exile, and after setting forth the double series of the three sons of Levi, viz., Gershom, Kohath, and Merari, he repeats the line of Aaron from Eleazar to the age of David and... read more

Robert Hawker

Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary - 1 Chronicles 6:31-48

These verses give us the relation of the order respecting the psalmody in the house of the Lord. David himself is stilled, the sweet Psalmist of Israel: and it appears, from what is here said, that he presided in the choir of singers, and gave them their several stations. Some of the characters here mentioned, are noticed in the book of Psalms. Heman's name stands at the head of Psalms 88:0 . Ethan at Psalms 89:0 . Asaph at several, Psalms 73:0 to Psalms 83:0 . read more

G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible - 1 Chronicles 6:1-81

In this whole chapter, consisting of eighty-one verses, the one subject is the priestly tribe. This in itself reveals the standard from which the history was written. Judah, the kingly tribe, is the only one which has more space devoted to it, occupying, as it does, one hundred and two verses. These, however, center in David. In the section now under consideration, the sons of Levi, around whom the divisions of the tribe for service were made, are named-Gershon, Kohath, and Merari. Then there... read more

Chuck Smith Bible Commentary - 1 Chronicles 6:1-81

Chapter 6Now in chapter six, we now get to the tribe of Levi from which was the priestly tribe.[And the three sons which made the major families within the tribe of] Levi were Gershon, Kohath, and Merari. And of Kohath was born Amram. And from Amram was born Aaron, and Moses, and Miriam, [their sister] ( 1 Chronicles 6:1-3 ).And so Moses and Aaron both came from the family of Kohath in the tribe of Levi. And then you follow the high priest line from Aaron, his son Eleazar and so forth. You... read more

Joseph Sutcliffe

Sutcliffe's Commentary on the Old and New Testaments - 1 Chronicles 6:1-81

1 Chronicles 6:4 . Eleazar begat Phinehas. A correct table of the Jewish highpriests would be very desirable to every lover of sacred literature. The best list I can collect is as follows: Aaron, Eleazar, Phinehas, Abishua, Bukki, Uzzi, Zerathiah, and Meraioth. Here Eleazar’s line suffered a chasm for the admission of Eli’s house, who filled the pontificate for seven generations; but God shortened their lives for their family’s sin. Some think that Abimelech whom Saul slew, with eighty four... read more
