* For the division of Chronicles into two books, see note on the structure of the two books of Samuel as a whole.


TITLE,
First. See note on p. 530.

Chronicles. Heb. name, Dibrei hayyamim = words of the days. Greek name, Paraleipomena = things omitted. Latin name, C hronicon ,from whence comes English title. Chronicles. These books belong toquite another part of the O.T., and do not follow in sequence on thebooks of Kings. See Appdx-1. They are, according to the Heb. Canon, the conclusion of the O.T.; and the genealogies here lead up to that of Matthew 1:1, and the commencement of the N.T. They end with the ending of the kingdom; and the question of Cyrus, "Who is there?" (2 Chronicles 36:23) is followed by the answer, "Where is He ?" (Matthew 2:2),and the proclamation of the kingdom by the rightful King and Hisforerunner. It begins with the first Adam and leads on to the "lastAdam".

For the relation of Chronicles to Kings see notes ontitle "Kings" (p. 447); and for the parallel passages in Samuel andKings see Appdx-56.

It deals with the kingdom of Judah, because Christ was proclaimed as the successor of David.

It refers to other books:
-Kings (2 Chronicles 16:11; 2 Chronicles 16:27. 2 Chronicles 16:7; 2 Chronicles 16:33. 2 Chronicles 16:18); Prophets (1 Chronicles 29:20. 2 Chronicles 9:29; 2 Chronicles 9:12. 2 Chronicles 9:15; 2 Chronicles 9:13. 2 Chronicles 9:22; 2 Chronicles 9:20. 2 Chronicles 9:34; 2 Chronicles 9:26. 2 Chronicles 9:22; 2 Chronicles 9:32. 2 Chronicles 9:32). It gives the histories from the Divine standpoint, pointing the moral, and giving the reason of both the judgments and the mercies (cp. 1 Chronicles 10:11. 2 Chronicles 12:12; 2 Chronicles 12:25. 2 Chronicles 12:20; 2 Chronicles 27:6, &c).
