Reflections on I Chronicles 1-5

Our passage today consists of genealogies.

  • Davidic Line – Chapter 3 gives the genealogy of David’s descendants. Note that it continues beyond the exile (v17-24).  Judah may have gone into exile, but David’s line continues.  This would have been a great hope to Israel.  And in this line will come our Savior in whom we place our hope.
  • Trust or not – The two and a half tribes east of the Jordan cried out to God for help in a battle, and God helped them because they trusted in him (5:18-22). But later they were taken into captivity because they broke faith with God – they went after other gods (5:23-26).  What about you?  Are you looking to God, or chasing after idols?
