2 Chronicles 11:19 Meaning and Commentary

2 Chronicles 11:19

Which bare him children
Or, "and she bore him" F4; for it is said only of one of them, the other perhaps died without children; this may refer to the last mentioned, Abihail, whose children were

Jeush, and Shamariah, and Zaham;
who perhaps all died in their father's lifetime, since the firstborn of a later wife succeeded him.


F4 (dltw) "peperit", Pagninus, Montanus.
