the children of Sheshan.

1 Chronicles 2:34,35
Now Sheshan had no sons, but daughters. And Sheshan had a servant, an Egyptian, whose name was Jarha…









(31) The children of Sheshan; Ahlai.--See Note on 1Chronicles 1:41, "Dishon." Ahlai is the name of a clan, not of an individual. Others would explain such phrases by assuming that "sons of so-and-so" is a conventional expression, used even where only one person has to be registered; or that the chronicler has in such cases abbreviated the contents of his source, by omitting all the names but one. Both assumptions are antiquated.
