CHRONICLES. QUESTION

by Manasseh Ben Israel
CHRONICLES. QUESTION 1. 1 Chron. 2: 18. And Caleb, son of Hesrai, 1 Chron. 2: 19. And when Hazuba was begot Hazuba, and these are her sons. dead, Caleb took unto him Ephrat. RECONCILIATION. According to Rashi, Caleb gave his daughter the name of his wife, so it rightly says,  he begat Hazuba, and when his wife, bearing the same name, died, he took another. Or, according to R. David Kimchi, the adverb את here has the same mean-ing of מן  of, as in Exodus, כצאתי את העיר  as I am gone out of the city, 1 then the verse says,  And Caleb begot of Hazuba his wife, & c. and making no further mention of the children of Hazuba, it says,  when she died, he took Ephrat. QUESTION 2. 1 Chron. 2: 31. And the sons of Sessan 1 Chron. 2: 34. Now Sessan had no sons, Achlai. but daughters. RECONCILIATION. Sessan might have had this son Achlai and yet die without sons, from his dying before him. Rashi considered the cause for his death to be implied in his name, because אחלי is derived from חולה  sick. From dying in the life-time of his father, Sessan is said to have died without sons; thus the verses agree. QUESTION 3. 1 Chron, 3: 22. Names but five sons of Shemaiah, and yet says they were six. RECONCILIATION. As Shechaniah had only one son Shemaiah, and he had five; the father and sons are together reckoned as the sons of Shechaniah, thus making six. The ancients say of similar passages, אל גתגתן דברי הימים אלא לידרש  Chronicles was only given for argument, ingeniously to discover the intention of the author in the difference he makes on so many points. Or it may be, one of the six dying whilst a child is not named, although included in the number he is said to have had. A similar instance we find with the sons of David, where in 2 Sam. v. 15, it names seven as those born to him in Jerusalem, and in Chronicles two others who died while children. QUESTION 4. 1 Chron. 15: 16. And David spake to the chief of the Levites to appoint their brethren the singers with instruments of music. 1 Chron. 15: 18. And with them their brethren the seconds, Zechariah, & c, the porters. 1 Exodus 9: 29 · Chapter Home  | TOC  | Index t
