EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)Genesis 10:4 note. 1 Chronicles 1:8, then of Shem, whose posterity are mentioned last, because from him, in the line of Heber, sprang Abraham, the ancestor of the Jewish nation, of whom the Messiah was to come, for whose sake this genealogy is given, 1 Chronicles 1:17. The whole is the same with the account in And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Havilah, and Sabta, and Raamah, and Sabtecha. And the sons of Raamah; Sheba, and Dedan.
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)9. the sons of Cush] According to some authorities Seba and Havilah are to be sought in Africa on the W. coast of the Red and the Gulf of Aden, while Sabta, Raamah, and Sabtecha (R.V. Sabteca) are to be sought in Arabia. According to another view (Sayce, Higher Criticism, p. 133) all five tribes belonged to Arabia.
Seba] In Isaiah 43:3; Isaiah 45:14 Seba (the Sabeans) is mentioned along with Egypt and Cush, and in Psalm 72:10 along with Sheba. The first two passages suggest Africa, the third Arabia as Seba’s home.
Sheba and Dedan] The same two names occur together in 1 Chronicles 1:32 as descendants of Shem through Jokshan. Possibly the same two tribes are meant in both places, and Sheba and Dedan were of mixed origin, Hamitic and Semitic.Genesis 5, and grouped together without any link of connection whatever: it is assumed as known from Genesis, that the first ten names denote generations succeeding one another, and that the last three, on the contrary, are the names of brethren.
