2 Chronicles 11:18 Parallel
Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

This is probably an extract from the "genealogies" of Iddo 2 Chronicles 12:15.

As Jerimoth is not mentioned among the legitimate sons of David 1 Chronicles 3:1-8; 1 Chronicles 14:4-7, he must have been the child of a concubine.

Abihail was probably the "grand-daughter," not "daughter," of Eliab 1 Samuel 16:6; 1 Samuel 17:13; 1 Chronicles 2:13.
