2 The third, Absalom the son of Maachah the daughter of Talmai king of Geshur: the fourth, Adonijah the son of Haggith:
3The fifth, Shephatiah of Abital: the sixth, Ithream by Eglah his wife. (The only woman in this list called David's "wife". Perhaps his original wife.)
953 TO 920 B.C.
4 These six were born to him in Hebron; and there he reigned seven years and six months: and in Jerusalem he reigned thirty three years.
5 And these were born to him in Jerusalem (cp. 2 Sam. 5:13-16); Shimea, and Shobab, and Nathan (The son through whom the genealogy of Joseph is traced in Luke 3; and in Matt. 1, after Solomon's line failed in Jeconiah. See v. 17), and Solomon (through whom the line is traced in Matt. 1), four, of Bathshua (another name for Beth-sheba. Cp. 2 Sam. 11:3) the daughter of Ammiel (or Eliam, cp. 2 Sam 11:3):
6 Ibhar also, and Elishama, and Eliphelet,
7 And Nogah, and Nepheg, and Japhia,
8 And Elishama, and Eliada, and Eliphelet, nine. (11 are mentioned in 2 Sam. 5:14-16; but probably 2 died young, and their names were not needed in the genealogy. Cp. 2 Sam. 5:15)
9 These were all the sons of David, beside the sons of the concubines, and Tamar their sister. (Cp. 2 Sam. 13)

15 And the sons of Josiah were, the firstborn Johanan (or Jehoahaz. 2 Kings 23:30), the second Jehoiakim (called Eliakim by his father, but Jehoiakim by Pharaoh-nechoh, king of Egypt [2 Kings 23:34]), the third Zedekiah (the same as Mattaniah. Cp. 2 Kings 24:17,18. He was the last king of Judah), the fourth Shallum. (The same as Jehoaz, the successor of Josiah [Jer. 22:11. 2 Kings 23:31,34)
16 And the sons of Jehoiakim: Jeconiah his son (also called Jehoiachin [2 Kings 24:6], and Coniah [Jer. 22:24,28]. Cp. 2 Chron. 36:9. 2 Kings 24:8), Zedekiah his son.
17 And the sons of Jeconiah (cp. Jer. 22:28-30); Assir (= the captive, perhaps referring to Zedekiah, and not a proper name), Salathiel his son,
18 Malchiram also, and Pedaiah, and Shenazar, Jecamiah, Hoshama, and Nedabiah.
19 And the sons of Pedaiah were, Zerubbabel (according to Matt. 1:12 and Ezra 3:2; 5:2, the son of Sheatiel), and Shimei: and the sons of Zerubbabel; Meshullam, and Hananiah, and Shelomith their sister:
20 And Hashubah, and Ohel, and Berechiah, and Hasadiah, Jushabhesed, five.
21 And the sons of Hananiah; Pelatiah, and Jesaiah: the sons of Rephaiah, the sons of Arnan, the sons of Obadiah, the sons of Shechaniah.
22 And the sons of Shechaniah; Shemaiah: and the sons of Shemaiah; Hattush, and Igeal, and Bariah, and Neariah, and Shaphat, six. (Heb. Shishshah, which may be a proper name and not the numeral)
23 And the sons of Neariah; Elioenai, and Hezekiah, and Azrikam, three.
24 And the sons of Elioenai were, Hodaiah, and Eliashib, and Pelaiah, and Akkub, and Johanan, and Dalaiah, and Anani, seven.
