Wesley's Notes for 1 Chronicles 7:23


7:23 Bare a son - Thus the breach was in some measure repaired, by theaddition of another son in his old age. When God thus restores comfortto his mourners, he makes glad according to the days wherein heafflicted, setting the mercies over against the crosses, we ought toobserve the kindness of his providence. Yet the joy that a man was borninto his family could not make him forget his grief. For he gives amelancholy name to his son, Beriah, that is, in trouble: for he wasborn when the family was in mourning. It is good to have in remembrancethe affliction and the misery which are past, that our souls may behumbled within us.
