EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)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 9:33.1 Chronicles 24:7-17, it appears that Jehoiarib was the original head of the first "course," Jedaiah of the second shift, and Jachin of the twenty-first shift. Nehemiah 11:17. And Bakbakkar, Heresh, and Galal, and Mattaniah the son of Micah, the son of Zichri, the son of Asaph;
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)15. Bakbakkar, Heresh, and Galal] The reading appears to be corrupt, for the analogy of the latter half of the Terse as well as of 1 Chronicles 9:14; 1 Chronicles 9:16 leads us to expect something more than bare names. Neither the LXX. nor the Vulg. give any real help for emending the clause. The corresponding words in Neh. (1 Chronicles 11:17) are Bakbukiah the second among his brethren.1 Chronicles 9:6. "All these men" are not the brethren whose number is given, but the heads who have been mentioned by name. Now, if we compare this with Nehemiah 11, we meet in 1 Chronicles 9:7-9 with only one of the four heads of Benjamin, Sallu, and that too, as in the Chronicle, as a son of Meshullam, while the ancestors of both are different. Instead of the three others in 1 Chronicles 9:8, we have סלּי גּבּי, 928; and in 1 Chronicles 9:9, as overseer (prefect), and Jehudah as ruler over the city.
