PART I (1 Chronicles 1-9). Genealogical Lists, together with Geographical and Historical Notes.— These chapters form a general introduction to the whole work. They contain the following genealogies, often in an incomplete form: Adam to Israel ( 1 Chronicles 1:1 to 1 Chronicles 2:2)— with the exception of Cain’ s descendants ( Genesis 4:16-22)— the whole material is taken from Genesis 1-36; Judah ( 1 Chronicles 2:3-55); David ( 1 Chronicles 3:1-24); Judah again, and made up of fragments ( 1 Chronicles 4:1-23); Simeon ( 1 Chronicles 4:24-43); Reuben, Gad, and half the tribe (the eastern) of Manasseh ( 1 Chronicles 5:1-26); Levi and the Levitical cities ( 1 Chronicles 6:1-81); Issachar ( 1 Chronicles 7:1-5); Benjamin ( 1 Chronicles 7:6-12); Naphtali ( 1 Chronicles 7:13); half the tribe of Manasseh (the western) ( 1 Chronicles 7:14-19); Ephraim ( 1 Chronicles 7:20-29); Asher ( 1 Chronicles 7:30-40); Benjamin again, together with the house of Saul ( 1 Chronicles 8:1-40). Then follows an enumeration of the inhabitants of Jerusalem given in the order: sons of Judah, Benjamin, Ephraim, Manasseh, priests, Levites, doorkeepers ( 1 Chronicles 9:1-44); 1 Chronicles 9:35-44 are repeated verbally from 1 Chronicles 8:29-38.
