Bible Commentary for Matthew 1:8

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 1:8

1:8 Jehoram begat Uzziah - Jehoahaz, Joash, and Amaziah coming between. So that he begat him mediately, as Christ is mediately the son of David and of Abraham. So the progeny of Hezekiah, after many generations, are called the sons that should issue from him, which he should beget, #Isaiah 39:7|.

People's Bible Notes for Matthew 1:8

Mt 1:8 Joram. Between Joram and Uzziah three names are intentionally omitted. They are found in 1Ch 3:11-12. They were probably omitted to equalize the threefold division of generations from Abraham to Joseph. Such omissions of unimportant links are common in the Old Testament.
