Go to Bible: 1 Chronicles 2
1Ch 2:1

“Israel.” The son is here named “Israel,” not Jacob. That is likely due to the last date that Chronicles was written and the desire to consider “Israel” (all twelve tribes) as descendants of Abraham (cp. 1 Chron. 1:34).

1Ch 2:2

“Joseph.” In this list of the sons of Jacob, the tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh are not listed but the actual son of Jacob, “Joseph” is named.

1Ch 2:5(top)
1Ch 2:6(top)
1Ch 2:7

“Achar.” Achar is called Achan in Joshua 7:1. The name was likely changed in Chronicles because the name Achar is related to the Hebrew word for “trouble.”

1Ch 2:8(top)
1Ch 2:9(top)
1Ch 2:10

“leader of the children of Judah.” Nahshon was the leader of the tribe of Judah when the children of Israel came out of Egypt (Num. 1:7; 2:3).

1Ch 2:16

“Abishai and Joab and Asahel.” These men who were so important in David’s time were David’s nephews. The Bible does not tell us when Zeruiah and Abigail were born, but if they were among the first of Jesse’s children to be born, and David was the last, the children of Zeruiah and Abigail could have been very close in age to David. So although he was technically their uncle, the similar age could have easily made them more like cousins.

1Ch 2:17

“Amasa.” Amasa was a nephew of David but by Abigail.

1Ch 2:23

“daughter-towns.” The Hebrew text is just “daughters,” referring to small close-by towns that are supported by a “mother” town, a large and normally well-fortified town (see commentary on Josh. 15:45).

1Ch 2:24

“After Hezron’s death.” The REV translation follows the Septuagint. The Hebrew text is difficult, which is apparent from the many different English translations of the verse.

1Ch 2:35

“and she bore him Attai.” The children of Jarha were considered from the tribe of Judah, even though the father Jarha was an Egyptian. This shows that sometimes the lineage was not traced through the father, it could be traced through the mother.

“the father of Kiriath-jearim.” Kiriath-jearim is a location about ten miles west of Jerusalem. In this context, the word “father” means “founder” or “leader,” or both.
