Text Commentary side-by-side

Chs. 1–9 :

The Chronicler begins his history in a way similar to a number of ancient Greek histories by trying to show the internal connectedness of the nation. After tracing the nation's descent from a common stock of ancestors, the historian focuses on the tribe of Judah and the family line of David, which is of central importance to the destiny of Jerusalem.

1.1–54 :

Genealogy * of the ancestors. Summarizing much information from Genesis, the Chronicler starts with Adam and takes the sequence down to Jacob (also known as Israel).

43 :

These are the kings who reigned in the land of Edom: Located to the southeast of the land of Judah and on the other side of the Jordan valley, Edom was always recognized as having a close relationship to Judah. Israel also recognized that Edom had adopted a monarchic form of political organization before Israel had embraced monarchy.

51 :

The clans * of Edom: In Hebrew the word for “clans” is normally translated as “chiefs.” Prior to the emergence of David and the Judean monarchy, Edom was an independent kingdom; however, David was able to assert control over Edom and reduce its leaders to “chiefs.”
