(9-41) The Hezronites, who were sons of Pharez (1Chronicles 2:5), and their three lines of descent, Jerahmeel, Ram, and Chelubai.

(9) Jerahmeel.Godpitieth.

Ram.—Called Aram in our Lord’s genealogy (Matthew 1) The two names are synonyms, both meaning high, and are used interchangeably in Job 32:2 (Ram) and Genesis 22:21 (Aram).

Chelubai.—Strictly, the Chelubite or Calebite, a gentilic term formed from Caleb (1Chronicles 2:18). This seems to show that we are concerned here not so much with individual sons of Hezron as with families or clans of Hezronites.

1 Chronicles 2:9-10. And Ram — Who is mentioned in the genealogy of our Saviour, (Matthew 1:3-4,) and called Aram. Nashon, prince of the children of Judah — Namely, when, being come out of Egypt, they pitched under their several standards, Numbers 2:3. 2:1-55 Genealogies. - We are now come to the register of the children of Israel, that distinguished people, who were to dwell alone, and not be reckoned among the nations. But now, in Christ, all are welcome to his salvation who come to him; all have equal privileges according to their faith in him, their love and devotedness to him. All that is truly valuable consists in the favour, peace, and image of God, and a life spent to his glory, in promoting the welfare of our fellow-creatures."Achan" 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. 7. the sons of Carmi—He was the son of Zimri, or Zabdi, as he is called (Jos 7:1).

Achar—or Achan (Jos 7:1). This variety in the form of the name is with great propriety used here, since Achar means "troubler."

No text from Poole on this verse. The sons also of Hezron, that were born unto him,.... The Targum adds, in Timnath; but most likely in Egypt:

Jerahmeel, and Ram, and Chelubai; afterwards called Caleb.

The sons also of Hezron, that were born unto him; Jerahmeel, and {c} Ram, and Chelubai.

(c) Whom Matthew calls Aram, Mt 1:3.

9. Jerahmeel] For his descendants see 1 Chronicles 2:25-41. The descendants of his younger brother Ram are given first because they include David and his family.

Chelubai] Another form of “Caleb”; see 1 Chronicles 2:42.Verse 9.-3. THE LINE OF JUDAH PURSUED THROUGH THE THREE BRANCHES OF HEZRON'S SONS. The track of genealogy then returns upon Pharez, and to the name of Hezron, the most important by far of the seven grandsons. His three sons are annouThe sons of Judah and of Pharez, 1 Chronicles 2:3.f. - The five sons of Judah are given according to Genesis 38, as the remark on Er which is quoted from Genesis 38:7 of that chapter shows, while the names of the five sons are to be found also in Genesis 46:12. The two sons of Pharez are according to Genesis 46:12, cf. Numbers 26:21.
