EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)The sons of Jether.—Jether and Ithran (1Chronicles 7:37) are virtually the same name, and perhaps to be identified here. This will connect 1Chronicles 7:38 with the preceding line of the sons of Zophah.
Jephunneh.—The name of the father of Caleb the Kenizzite.1 Chronicles 7:32, his brother, Rohgah, etc." 1 Chronicles 7:37, And the sons of Jether; Jephunneh, and Pispah, and Ara.
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)Genesis 46:17 and Numbers 26:45 as the heads of two families; but the further statement, "he (i.e., Malchiel) the father of Birzavith," is found only here. How ברזות, the Kethibh, is to be pronounced, cannot be with certainty determined. Gesen. in Thes. p. 239 makes it בּרזות, and considers the word to be the name of a woman; Bertheau, on the contrary conjectures that it is a compound of בר equals בּאר and זית, "well of the olive-tree," and so the name of a place. In 1 Chronicles 7:32-34 the descendants of Heber are enumerated in three generations, which are mentioned nowhere else. In 1 Chronicles 7:32 we have four sons and one daughter. The name יפלט is not to be connected with יפלטי, Joshua 16:3, "because a family of Asher is not to be sought for in the neighbourhood there referred to" (Berth.). In 1 Chronicles 7:33 we have four sons of Japhlet, and in 1 Chronicles 7:34 the sons of his brother Shemer. It is somewhat remarkable that שׁומר, 1 Chronicles 7:32, is called here שׁמר. אחי is not an appellative, but a proper name, as the ו before the following name shows; cf. another Ahi in 1 Chronicles 5:15. For יחבּה we should read וחבּה.
