Wesley's Notes for 1 Chronicles 3:4


3:3 His wife - Possibly so called because she was his first, andtherefore most proper wife, though her son was born after all the restbefore mentioned, and therefore she and her son are put in the sixthplace, the wive being here named only for the sons sake.

3:5 Four - All David's children by her, as the text positivelyaffirms: and therefore Solomon is called her, only son,#Prov 4:3|, because she loved him as if he had been so.Ammiel - Called also Eliam, #2Sam 11:3|.

3:6 Eliphelet - And he had two other sons called by the same names,ver.#8|, probably they were by different wives: and probably they werethen distinguished by some additional clause or title, which is hereomitted, because the two first were dead before the two second wereborn, and therefore the names of the deceased were given to these topreserve their memory.
