1 Chronicles 7-8

Chapter 7

This chapter is notable only for its interesting contradiction in verse 6 – who were the sons of Benjamin? Check this list against 3 other accounts – Genesis 46:21; Numbers 26:38-40; and 1 Chronicles 8:1-2. Only one name (Bela) is found on all 4 lists.

Chapter 8

There’s nothing to comment on in chapter 8 except the bad editing. It not only contradicts the list of Benjamin’s sons that the author just recorded in the previous chapter, but verses 29-38 will be repeated in chapter 9:35-44. Unbelievable.

Some of the writers of the New Testament were not impressed by all these endless genealogies, as we’ll see later.
