Wesley's Notes for 1 Chronicles 1:5


1:5 The sons of Japheh - The historian repeating the account of thereplenishing the earth by the sons of Noah, begins with those that werestrangers to the church, the sons of Japheth, who peopled Europe, ofwhom he says little, as the Jews had hitherto little or no dealings withthem. He proceeds to those that had many of them been enemies to thechurch, and thence hastens to the line of Abraham, breaking off abruptlyfrom all the other families of the sons of Noah, but that ofArphaxad, from whom Christ was to come. The great promise of theMessiah was transmitted from Adam to Seth, from him to Shem,from him to Eber, and so to the Jewish nation, who were intrustedabove all nations with that sacred treasure, 'till the promise wasperformed, and the Messiah was come: and then that nation was made nota people.
