People's Bible Notes for Matthew 1:6


Mt 1:6 David the king. The greatest of line from Abraham to Christ, so exalted that one of the titles of the Messiah was "the Son of David". [The wife] of Uriah. The mother of Solomon is referred to, not by name, but as the wife of Uriah. Uriah was a Hittite, a Gentile, and his wife may have been also. She was certainly a partner of David in the greatest guilt of his life.
