EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)The sons of Ethan.—Nothing is known of this Ethanite Azariah. It seems plain that the writer wished to name only the historically famous members of the Zarhite branch of Judah—in 1Chronicles 2:6, the four proverbial sages; in 1Chronicles 2:7, Achar who brought woe upon Israel by taking of the devoted spoils of Jericho.Joshua 7:1 seems to have become "Achar," in order to assimilate the word more closely to the Hebrew term for "troubler," which was from the time of Achan's sin regarded as the true meaning of his name Joshua 7:25-26.
Achar—or Achan (Jos 7:1). This variety in the form of the name is with great propriety used here, since Achar means "troubler."Genesis 46:23, the posterity of the other three sons of Zerah are not mentioned, either because the writer could not find the genealogy of them, as Kimchi; or rather, as he thinks, he cuts short the genealogy of Zerah, because the kingdom did not proceed from him, and returns to the genealogy of Hezron, from whence it did, or perhaps they had no children. And the sons of Ethan; Azariah.
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)Verse 8. - The line through Ethan, another of the seven grandsons, seems to stop with Azariah, a name found nowhere else. Genesis 35:23., is perhaps to be accounted for by Rachel's wishing the son of her maid Bilhah to be accounted her own (vide Genesis 30:3-6).
