1 Chronicles 1

Historical Records from Adam to Abraham (1:1–27)

17–27 These verses list the descendants of Shem, the son of Noah through whom would come Abraham and the nation of Israel (Genesis 10:21–31). Here the writer names God’s chosen line—the line of Shem—last of all, a custom he will continue to follow in this chapter.

The Family of Abraham (1:28–34)

28–31 The writer again places Isaac’s line—the chosen line—last, after Abraham’s sons by other wives. In these verses, the writer lists the descendants of Hagar’s son Ishmael (Genesis 25:12–16).

32–33 These verses list the descendants of Abraham’s concubine Keturah (Genesis 25:1–4).

34 Here Sarah’s son Isaac is listed, together with his two sons, Esau and Israel (Jacob).

Esau’s Sons (1:35–54)

35–37 Again the secondary line of Esau comes before the chosen line of Israel (Genesis 36:9–14).

38–42 In these verses, the writer lists the descendants of Seir (Genesis 36:20–30). Seir was already living in Edom before Esau settled there.7

43–54 These verses list the rulers of Edom (Genesis 36:31–43).
