Matthew Henry's Complete Commentary - 1 Chronicles 9:35-44

1 Chron. 9:35-44 are the very same with 1 Chron. 8:29-38, giving an account of the ancestors of Saul and the posterity of Jonathan. There it is the conclusion of the genealogy of Benjamin; here it is an introduction to the story of Saul. We take the repetition as we find it; but if we admit that there are in the originals, especially in these books, some errors of the transcribers, I should be tempted to think this repetition arose from a blunder. Some one, in copying out these genealogies,... read more

John Gills Exposition of the Bible Commentary - 1 Chronicles 9:35-44

And in Gibeon dwelt the father of Gibeon ,.... Whose name is here mentioned, which is not in 1 Chronicles 8:29 . Jehiel: whose wife's name was Maachah ; as there, but here called his sister, as a wife sometimes is, Genesis 20:2 . From hence to the end of the chapter is a repetition of the ancestors and posterity of Saul king of Israel; which is made to lead on to and connect the following history of the kings of Judah, begun in this book, and carried on in the next unto the... read more

Adam Clarke

Adam Clarke's Commentary on the Bible - 1 Chronicles 9:35

Whose wife ' s name was Maachah - Here our translators have departed from the original, for the word is אחתו achotho , his Sister; but the Vulgate, Septuagint, Syriac, Arabic, and Chaldee, have Wife; to which may be added 1 Chronicles 8:29 , the parallel place. Almost all the early editions, as well as the MS. editions, have the same reading. Of all the Polyglots the Complutensian alone has אשתו ishto , his Wife. His wife is the reading also of Vatablus's Polyglot, but in... read more

The Pulpit Commentary - 1 Chronicles 9:35-44

(See last chapter, 1 Chronicles 9:29-40 .) HOMILIES BY J.R. THOMSON 1 Chronicles 9:11 .-The ruler of the house of God. Whether this Azariah was the high priest or the "second priest" does not seem certain. But the office here ascribed to him is evidently one of great importance, and is suggestive of memorable truths with regard to God's spiritual temple and kingdom. I. THE TRUE " HOUSE OF GOD " IS SPIRITUAL . The temple at Jerusalem was the emblem of the... read more

Albert Barnes

Albert Barnes' Notes on the Whole Bible - 1 Chronicles 9:35-44

An almost exact repetition of 1 Chronicles 8:29-38; and probably intentionally made by the author. In order to connect the genealogical section of his work with the historical, he re-introduces the genealogy of the person with whose death his historical section opens. read more

Donald C. Fleming

Bridgeway Bible Commentary - 1 Chronicles 9:35-44

9:35-22:1 THE REIGN OF DAVIDEnd of the line of Saul (9:35-10:14)Saul is introduced by listing his genealogy once again (35-44). However, the Chronicler passes over the reign of Saul in silence, for his concern is with the dynasty of David. Saul’s death alone is recounted, since that was the means of bringing in the reign of David. It was also God’s judgment on Saul for his unfaithfulness and disobedience (10:1-14; see notes on 1 Samuel 31:1-13). read more
