View Wesley's Notes for 1 Chronicles Chapter 2
2:3 Judah - Whom he puts first, because the best part of the right ofthe firstborn, namely, the dominion, was conferred upon him, #Gen 49:8|,and because the Messiah was to come out of his loins.
2:6 Dara - If these be the same who are mentioned as the sons ofMachol, #1Kings 4:31|, either the same man had two names,Zerah and Machol, as was usual among the Hebrews: or, one ofthese was their immediate father, and the other their grand - father.These are named, because they were the glory of their father's house.When the Holy Ghost would magnify the wisdom of Solomon, he saith,he was wiser than these four men. That four brothers should be soeminent, was a rare thing.
2:7 Carmi - Who is here mentioned, because he was theson of Zimri, who is also called Zabdi, #Jos 7:1|.Achar - Called Achan, #Jos 7:1|,and here Achar, with a little variation for greatersignificancy: for Achar signifies a troubler.
2:13 Eliab - Called also Elihu, chap.#27:18|, unless that wasanother person, and the word brother be taken more largely fora kinsman, as it is frequently.
2:15 Seventh - He had eight sons, #1Sam 16:10|, but probably oneof them died presently after that time.
2:17 Ishmaelite - By birth or habitation, but by profession anIsraelite, #2Sam 17:25|.
2:18 Her sons - The sons of Azubah, who is by way of distinctioncalled his wife, when Jerioth probably was only his concubine, and,it may seem, barren: therefore upon Azubah's death he married anotherwife. And those other sons of this Caleb mentioned, ver.#42|, arehis sons by some other wife distinct from all these.
2:21 Gilead - Of a man so called: a man of noted valour,and the great champion in those parts.
2:23 Sons of Machir - Partly to his own sons, and partly to hisson - in - law Jair, who by reason of that dear affection which wasbetwixt them, and his forsaking his own tribe and kindred to fightfor them and to dwell with them, is here reckoned as his own son.
2:24 Tekoa - A known place whose father he is called, because hewas either the progenitor of the people inhabiting there: or, their princeand ruler: or, the builder of the city.
2:31 The sons - An expression often used in prophane authors too,where there is but one son.
2:35 Jarha - Probably he was not only a proselyte, but an eminent man:else an Israelite would not have given him his only daughter.
2:45 Beth - zur - A place in Judah.
2:49 Madmannah - This, and divers other following names arethe names of places in Judah.
2:51 Bethlehem - That is, the inhabitants of Bethlehem.
2:55 Scribes - Either civil, who were public notaries, that wrote andsigned legal instruments: or ecclesiastical. And these were eitherLevites, or Simeonites, or rather Kenites, and are herementioned not as if they were of the tribe of Judah, but because theydwelt among them, and probably were allied to them by marriages, andso in a manner incorporated with them.
