1 Chronicles 3:4-5

Context

3:4 These six were born to David 1  in Hebron, where he ruled for seven years and six months.

He ruled thirty-three years in Jerusalem. 2  3:5 These were the sons born to him in Jerusalem:

Shimea, 3  Shobab, Nathan, and Solomon – the mother of these four was Bathsheba 4  the daughter of Ammiel. 5 

1 tn Heb “him”; the referent (David) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

2 map For location see Map5 B1; Map6 F3; Map7 E2; Map8 F2; Map10 B3; JP1 F4; JP2 F4; JP3 F4; JP4 F4.

3 tn “Shimea” (שִׁמְעָא, shima’) is a variant spelling of “Shammua” (שַׁמּוּעַ, shammua’; see 2 Sam 5:14). Some English versions use the spelling “Shammua” here (e.g., NIV, NCV).

4 tn Most Hebrew mss read “Bathshua” here, but 2 Sam 12:24 makes it clear Bathsheba was Solomon’s mother. “Bathsheba” is read by one Hebrew ms and the Vulgate. Many English translations (e.g., NAB, NIV, NLT) render the name “Bathsheba” to avoid confusion.

5 tn In 2 Sam 11:3 Bathsheba is called “the daughter of Eliam,” while here her father’s name is given as “Ammiel.”
