Ezra 8:2 Meaning and Commentary

Ezra 8:2

Of the sons of Phinehas; Gershom: of the sons of Ithamar;
Daniel
Not Daniel the prophet, he was of the royal blood, and of the tribe of Judah; this was a priest, a descendant of Ithamar, as Gershom was of Eleazar in the line of Phinehas:

of the sons of David; Hattush;
perhaps the same with him in ( 1 Chronicles 3:22 ) , who was a descendant of David the king; these three men seem to have come alone without any of their families, at least they are not mentioned, nor their numbers given, as the rest that follow be.
