(7) The sons of Carmi.--See Note on 1Chronicles 1:41.

Achar, the troubler of Israel.--See Joshua 7:1, where the man is called "Achan, son of Carmi, son of Zabdi, son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah." The family of Carmi, therefore, were Zarhites. Joshua 7:24 calls him "Achan, the son of Zerah," an expression which shows, if other proof were wanting, that we must be cautious of interpreting such phrases literally in all instances.

Achar . . . troubler of Israel.--There is a play on the man's name in the Hebrew, which is, "Achar 'ocher Yisrael." So in Joshua 7:25 Joshua asks, "Why hast thou troubled us?" ('achartanu), and in 1Chronicles 2:26 the place of Achar's doom is called "the valley of Achor" (trouble). Probably Achan is an old error for Achar.

Verse 7. - We have then so far seven grandsons to Judah, when a new name, unmentioned before, is introduced - Carmi. He is neither described as one of the seven grandsons nor as descended from any one of them, but unenviably enough is marked as the father of Achar - later form of Achau - the troubler of Israel. Joshua 7:1-18 supplies the missing link, and states that Carmi is son of Zimri (Zabdi), one of the aforesaid seven grandsons. By the punishment of death, visited upon this Achar, with his sons and daughters (Joshua 7:24, 25), it may be presumed that the line of Judah through him became extinct.
