Treasury of Scripture

As for Elkanah: the sons of Elkanah; Zophai his son, and Nahath his son,

Zophai.

1 Chronicles 6:35
The son of Zuph, the son of Elkanah, the son of Mahath, the son of Amasai,

1 Samuel 1:1
Now there was a certain man of Ramathaimzophim, of mount Ephraim, and his name was Elkanah, the son of Jeroham, the son of Elihu, the son of Tohu, the son of Zuph, an Ephrathite:

Zuph.

1 Chronicles 6:34
The son of Elkanah, the son of Jeroham, the son of Eliel, the son of Toah,

Toah.

1 Samuel 1:1
Now there was a certain man of Ramathaimzophim, of mount Ephraim, and his name was Elkanah, the son of Jeroham, the son of Elihu, the son of Tohu, the son of Zuph, an Ephrathite:

Tohu.









(26) The Hebrew text reads: "Elkanah his son--Elkanah--Zophai his son," &c. Zophai might mean the Zophite. The LXX. has (1Chronicles 6:25) "And sons of Elkanah, Amessi and Ahimoth;" (1Chronicles 6:26) "Elkanah his son, Souphi his son," &c. So the Syriac. That this is correct appears from comparison of Heman's pedigree (1Chronicles 6:35). The second Elkanah in 1Chronicles 6:26 is therefore an intrusion, due perhaps to some scribe who remembered 1Samuel 1:1, where Zophim occurs just before Elkanah. In 1Chronicles 6:35 Elkanah is son of Mahath, son of Amasai. Perhaps Mahath is identical with the Ahimoth of 1Chronicles 6:25; if so, the true reading of 1Chronicles 6:25-26 would be: "And sons of Elkanah: Amasai his son, Ahimoth (Mahath) his son, Elkanah his son, Zophai his son," &c. Zophai is to Zuph (1Chronicles 6:35) as Chelubai (1Chronicles 2:9) to Chelub (1Chronicles 4:11). Nahath looks like a transformation of Toah (1Chronicles 6:34), and Eliab (1Chronicles 6:27)--"El is father"--may be a by-form of Eliel (ibid.) "El is el." Jeroham and Elkanah go back to Eliel in 1Chronicles 6:34, just as they spring from Eliab here. The two series again coincide. . . .
