1 Chronicles 2:10 Meaning and Commentary

Ver. 10-12. And Ram begat Amminadab
Ram is the same with Aram, ( Matthew 1:3 Matthew 1:4 ) the genealogy is carried down from him to Jesse in the same order as there, and in ( Ruth 4:19-22 ) only here Nahshon the son of Amminadab is called

the prince of the children of Judah;
which Kimchi and Jarchi say is written for the honour of David, who descended from him; and Salmon his son is here called Salma.
