1 Chronicles 2

Did you ever get to read a passage with a ton of names in a Sunday School class? These names are a very complex jumble.

This genealogy focuses on David, and leaves out whole successions of other children of Israel. One initially expects X had A, B, and C. A had x and y, B had c and d, etc. That doesn't always happen. In numbering the children of Jesse (14,15), the Chronicler seems like a focused child with crayons.Notice the rise of the music in verse 15.

Verse 24 is anomalous. There is no subject to the second half of the verse. Someone unnamed took לקה the wife of Hetsron. Maybe Caleb (a correction suggested by JB). I don't use marry here which I have used for בעל.

If I put a 'name' in brackets, it is only an interpretive suggestion. There are multiple possible glosses for a name. And sometimes I suspect the fatherhood is a fatherhood of whole clans. How does one father half an individual? (v 52, 54).

Have fun.
