G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible
1 Chronicles 7



Verses 1-40

In this chapter we have the genealogies of six of the tribes, and again the bias of the chronicler is evident in his treatment. Those tribes more directly associated with Judah have fuller treatment than others. In referring to Issachar, Benjamin, and Asher, both genealogies and the number of fighting men are given. These numbers refer to the time of David, around whose reign all the interest of the Book centers. Of the sons of Issachar it is said that they were mighty men of valor, and among them were the chief men of the nation. Much the same is declared of the sons of Asher, that they were choice and mighty men of valor and chief among the princes. Naphtali is dismissed in a verse. Concerning Manasseh some few names are given and the possessions enumerated. The descendants of the three sons of Benjamin are declared to be mighty men of valor, while Ephraim is distinguished principally by the one name of Joshua, which appears in the course of the record.
