Treasury of Scripture

And Naaman, and Ahiah, and Gera, he removed them, and begat Uzza, and Ahihud.









(7) And Naaman, and Ahiah, and Gera, he removed them.--The three clans here mentioned are commonly regarded as the authors of the expatriation of the people of Geba. Of Gera it is specially said "he removed them," because Gera was the leading clan of the three. According to this interpretation the two verses (6-7) may be rendered: "And these are the sons of Ehud. (These are heads of clans belonging to the inhabitants of Geba, and men carried them away to Manahath--both Naaman, and Ahijah, and Gera, he it was who carried them away.) He begat Uzza and Ahihud." That is to say, Uzza and Ahihud, two chiefs of clans settled at Geba (1Chronicles 6:45), were forcibly removed by three other Benjamite clans to Manahath (see 1Chronicles 2:52; 1Chronicles 2:54). 'Al manahath might perhaps be rendered "for the sake of peace," referring to feuds between the clans of Geba.
