The Oxford Bible Commentary Line-by-line commentary for the New Revised Standard Version Bible.

Date.

Chronicles is authorial rather than traditional literature. It possibly stems from the late Persian period or more probably early Ptolemaic times. Cross's (1975 ) extremely early dating of a first edition (520 BCE) is unlikely since this presumes a very brief period between the sources used and the text itself. Placing it in the Maccabean period is difficult because of a probable reference by the Greek historian Eupolemos to the LXX edition of Chronicles. ‘Paraleipomena’ contains no dating criteria. The daric coin mentioned in 1 Chr 29:7 was not introduced before 515 BCE and remained in use until Hellenistic times. The list of David's descendants (1 Chr 3:19–24 )—the number of generations it contains is unclear—leads roughly up to 460 or 320 BCE; it is not of much help.
