1 Chronicles 6:22-28

Context

6:22 The sons 1  of Kohath:

His son Amminadab, his son Korah, his son Assir, 6:23 his son Elkanah, his son Ebiasaph, his son Assir, 6:24 his son Tahath, his son Uriel, his son Uzziah, and his son Shaul.

6:25 The sons of Elkanah:

Amasai, Ahimoth, 2  6:26 his son Elkanah, 3  his son Zophai, his son Nahath, 6:27 his son Eliab, his son Jeroham, and his son Elkanah. 4 

6:28 The sons of Samuel:

Joel the firstborn 5  and Abijah the second oldest.

1 tn Or perhaps, “descendants,” since the list differs from the one in v. 18.

2 tn Heb “and Achimoth.”

3 tc The consonantal Hebrew text (Kethib) has, “Elkanah, his son, Elkanah.” The marginal reading (Qere) is “Elkanah, the sons of Elkanah.” The text probably originally read simply, “Elkanah his son.”

4 tc After the last named individual (“Elkanah” in v. 27) some LXX mss insert the words “Samuel his son” to facilitate a transition to the following verse, which beings “and the sons of Samuel.” Among the English versions that include this added phrase are NAB, NIV, and NLT.

5 tc The Hebrew text lacks the name יוֹאֵל (yoel, “Joel”), which has probably dropped out due to homoioteleuton (note the last three letters of the preceding name שְׁמוּאֵל (shÿmuel, “Samuel”).
