And of the last sons of Adonikam, whose names are these, Eliphelet, Jeiel, and Shemaiah, and with them threescore males.

Whose names are, … — It seems the rest came before; so that now all the sons of that family returned.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

Ezra 8:13 And of the last sons of Adonikam, whose names [are] these, Eliphelet, Jeiel, and Shemaiah, and with them threescore males.

Ver. 13. And of the sons of Adonikam] Some of his sons went up before with Zerubbabel, Ezra 2:13. These not till now, together with Ezra. They might want either age or hearts to go at first with their brethren, E posteris posterioribus (Tremell.). Second thoughts are best many times; and Nunquam sero, si serio. Never sorry if cultivated. That son, in the Gospel, who, being bidden go work to-day in the vineyard, answered and said, I will not, but afterwards repented and went, wanted not his commendation, Matthew 21:29. A learned man notes thus upon this text: The lot of Adonikam was below his brethren, because he was the last that set foot forward toward their return.

Whedon's Commentary on the Bible

13.The last sons of Adonikam — Other sons, to the number of six hundred and sixty-six, went up with Zerubbabel, (Ezra 2:13,) and some think the sons here mentioned are called the last in reference to those who had previously accompanied Zerubbabel. But it is, perhaps, better to understand the last sons to be Eliphelet, Jeiel, and Shemaiah, who were the latest born immediate sons of Adonikam, and thus distinguished from other sons of fathers mentioned in the list, who were not immediate sons, but grandsons, or still more remote descendants.
