1 Chronicles 3:5-8

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 

3:6 The other nine were Ibhar, Elishua, 4  Elpelet, 5  3:7 Nogah, Nepheg, Japhia, 3:8 Elishama, Eliada, and Eliphelet.

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.”

4 tn All but two Hebrew mss read “Elishama” here, but 1 Chr 14:5 lists the name as “Elishua,” and is followed by a number of English versions here (e.g., NAB, NIV, NCV, TEV, CEV, NLT). Another son named “Elishama” is listed in 3:8.

5 tn The MT reads “Eliphelet” here, but 1 Chr 14:5 lists the name as “Elpelet” and is followed by some English versions here (e.g., TEV, NLT). Another son named “Eliphelet” is listed in 3:8.
