1 Chronicles 7:23 (King James Version)
And when he went in to his wife, she conceived, and bare a son, and he called his name Beriah, because it went evil with his house.
- that is, In evil. because.
- Many similar instances of the naming of children from passing circumstances, occur throughout the sacred volume. See those of a similar character with this verse: Genesis 35:18 ,where Rachel, while dying, names her new-born son Ben-oni, or, the son of my sorrow. So in 1 ; SA 4:21 the wife of Phinehas, on being apprised of the death of Eli and her husband, and that the ark was taken by the Philistines, while in the pains of travail, and dying, named her son I-chabod, or, there is no glory
- So also in the 4th chapter of this book, ver. 9, we read that Jabez, or, sorrowful, had that name given to him, because his mother "bare him with sorrow."
- 2 Samuel 23:5
