1 Chronicles 6:1 Parallel
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

The sons of Levi - It has been well remarked that the genealogy of Levi is given here more ample and correct than that of any of the others.

Alexander Maclaren—Expositions of Holy Scripture

The comparative indifference with which Chronicles is regarded in modern times by all but professional scholars seems to have been shared by the ancient Jewish church. Though written by the same hand as wrote Ezra-Nehemiah, and forming, together with these books, a continuous history of Judah, it is placed after them in the Hebrew Bible, of which it forms the concluding book; and this no doubt points to the fact that it attained canonical distinction later than they.
