Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on the Whole Bible
back to: 1 Chronicles
Book: 1 Chronicles
Chapter: 8

- Here is a larger list of Benjamin's Tribe. We may suppose that
many things in these genealogies, which to us seem difficult,
abrupt, and perplexed, were Plain and easy at that time, and
fully answered the intention for which they were published. Many
great and mighty nations then were in being upon Earth, and many
illustrious men, whose names are now wholly forgotten; while the
names of multitudes of the Israel of God are here kept in
Everlasting remembrance. The memory of the just is blessed.
