1 Chronicles 3:5

Context
3:5 These were the sons born to him in Jerusalem:

Shimea, 1  Shobab, Nathan, and Solomon – the mother of these four was Bathsheba 2  the daughter of Ammiel. 3 

1 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).

2 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.

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