Treasury of Scripture

And Bakbakkar, Heresh, and Galal, and Mattaniah the son of Micah, the son of Zichri, the son of Asaph;

Mattaniah

Nehemiah 11:17,22
And Mattaniah the son of Micha, the son of Zabdi, the son of Asaph, was the principal to begin the thanksgiving in prayer: and Bakbukiah the second among his brethren, and Abda the son of Shammua, the son of Galal, the son of Jeduthun…

Micha

1 Chronicles 12:25
Of the children of Simeon, mighty men of valour for the war, seven thousand and one hundred.

Zichri

1 Chronicles 25:2
Of the sons of Asaph; Zaccur, and Joseph, and Nethaniah, and Asarelah, the sons of Asaph under the hands of Asaph, which prophesied according to the order of the king.

Nehemiah 10:12
Zaccur, Sherebiah, Shebaniah,

Zaccur

1 Chronicles 11:17
And David longed, and said, Oh that one would give me drink of the water of the well of Bethlehem, that is at the gate!

Zabdi

1 Chronicles 12:35
And of the Danites expert in war twenty and eight thousand and six hundred.

Zaccur









(15, 16) The chronicler here omits the verse Nehemiah 11:16, after which follows, "And Mattaniah son of Micha son of Zabdi son of Asaph, the leader of praise, who used to give thanks after the prayer; and Bakbukiah the second among his brethren, and Abda son of Shammua, son of Galal, son of Jeduthun."

Bakbakkar and Bakbukiah are clearly variants of the same name, the latter being probably right.

Heresh, and Galal are omitted in Nehemiah 11

Zichri here is doubtless "Zabdi" there: a confusion of similar letters, k, b, r, d.

Obadiah the son of Shemaiah is the same as "Abda son of Shammua."

Berechiah the son of Asa, the son of Elkanah.--Unmentioned in Nehemiah 11 As the name Elkanah appears in the pedigree of Heman (1Chronicles 6:34), it is supposed that Berechiah represents the Hemanite guild, which is otherwise conspicuous here by its omission. Perhaps "son of Heman" has dropped out of the text, as there are two names between Mattaniah and Asaph, Obadiah and Jeduthun. It thus appears that 1Chronicles 9:15-16 are concerned with the Levitieal choirs; comp. 1Chronicles 9:33. . . .
