Sutcliffe's Commentary on the Old and New Testaments
1 Chronicles 3



Verses 1-24

1 Chronicles 3:10. Solomon’s son was Rehoboam. Here follows a list of the royal family. But where are they now? Let men rejoice rather that their names are written in heaven.

1 Chronicles 3:17. The sons of Jeconiah are eight. Against this prince the Lord by Jeremiah pronounced a curse, that he should both lose his throne and all his children. Hence his sons are supposed to have perished by sickness, and the sword; and that the Salathiel mentioned in Matthew 1:12, was his adopted son, or that by repentance in captivity he obtained a reprieve of the sentence; a reprieve, only, because we find by another evangelist that the lineal descent of Christ passed from this family into Nathan’s line. See Jeremiah 22:30. Luke 3:27; Luke 3:31.
