1 Chronicles 4

Back to naming. There seems to be an aporiah in the text of verse 15. If I am reading this right, Qenaz is pre-Caleb so perhaps there was a summary and it is missing. (I did not look in a commentary. No notes in JB or my version of NIV.)

I really don't know what to do with names. Transliterate or translate, (I mix them up just to keep you on your toes and looking at these puzzle pieces) and if the transliterate, by what rules (j or y, q or k, x or ch...), and if not translate, how do we get a sense of the love, hope, or the dynastic play in the ancient tribal folklore? Verse 42, for example, reads as a theological statement, Amalek being a traditional symbol of the flesh.

Did the ancients call to their children by nicknames?

Verse 17 - triplets?
