1 Chronicles 3

(3:1-24) " Now these were the sons of David, which were born unto him in Hebron; the firstborn Amnon, of Ahinoam the Jezreelitess; the second Daniel, of Abigail the Carmelitess ... And the sons of Elioenai were, Hodaiah, and Eliashib, and Pelaiah, and Akkub, and Johanan, and Dalaiah, and Anani, seven."

(3:1-4)
"The sons of David, which were born unto him in Hebron"
The sons of David born in Hebron

3:1 Now these were the sons of David, which were born unto him in Hebron; the firstborn Amnon, of Ahinoam the Jezreelitess; the second Daniel, of Abigail the Carmelitess:
3:2 The third, Absalom the son of Maachah the daughter of Talmai king of Geshur: the fourth, Adonijah the son of Haggith:
3:3 The fifth, Shephatiah of Abital: the sixth, Ithream by Eglah his wife.
3:4 These six were born unto him in Hebron; and there he reigned seven years and six months: and in Jerusalem he reigned thirty and three years.
3:5 And these were born unto him in Jerusalem; Shimea, and Shobab, and Nathan, and Solomon, four, of Bathshua the daughter of Ammiel: (3:5-8)
"And these were born unto him in Jerusalem; Shimea, and Shobab, and Nathan, and Solomon, four."
Was Solomon David's second or fourth son by Bathsheba?
The sons of David born in Jerusalem
3:6 Ibhar also, and Elishama, and Eliphelet,
3:7 And Nogah, and Nepheg, and Japhia,
3:8 And Elishama, and Eliada, and Eliphelet, nine.
3:9 These were all the sons of David, beside the sons of the concubines, and Tamar their sister.
3:10 And Solomon's son was Rehoboam, Abia his son, Asa his son, Jehoshaphat his son,
3:11 Joram his son, Ahaziah his son, Joash his son, (3:11-12, 15-16)
The gospel of Mathew (1:6-11) gives the same genealogy as is given here, except Matthew, in an attempt to preserve the magical number 14, leaves out four generations (Joash, Amaziah, Azariah, and Jehoiakim).
Generations from David to the Babylonian Captivity
3:12 Amaziah his son, Azariah his son, Jotham his son,
3:13 Ahaz his son, Hezekiah his son, Manasseh his son,
3:14 Amon his son, Josiah his son.
3:15 And the sons of Josiah were, the firstborn Johanan, the second Jehoiakim, the third Zedekiah, the fourth Shallum. (3:15-16) "And the sons of Josiah were ... Jehoiakim ... And the sons of Jehoiakim: Jeconiah his son."
Was Jechoniah the son or the grandson of Josiah?
3:16 And the sons of Jehoiakim: Jeconiah his son, Zedekiah his son.
3:17 And the sons of Jeconiah; Assir, Salathiel his son, (3:17-18) "And the sons of Jeconiah; Assir, Salatheil his son, Malchiram also, and Pedaiah, and Shenazar, Jecamiah, Hoshama, and Nedabiah."
Did Jeconiah have any sons?
3:18 Malchiram also, and Pedaiah, and Shenazar, Jecamiah, Hoshama, and Nedabiah.
3:19 And the sons of Pedaiah were, Zerubbabel, and Shimei: and the sons of Zerubbabel; Meshullam, and Hananiah, and Shelomith their sister: (3:19) "The sons of Pedaiah were, Zerubbabel...."
Who was Zerubbabel's father?

(3:19-20) "The sons of Zerubbabel; Meshullam, and Hananiah ... And Hashubah, and Ohel, and Berechiah, and Hasadiah, Jushabhesed, five."
Seven sons of Zerubbabel are listed, not five as is said in verse 20.

3:20 And Hashubah, and Ohel, and Berechiah, and Hasadiah, Jushabhesed, five.
3:21 And the sons of Hananiah; Pelatiah, and Jesaiah: the sons of Rephaiah, the sons of Arnan, the sons of Obadiah, the sons of Shechaniah.
3:22 And the sons of Shechaniah; Shemaiah: and the sons of Shemaiah; Hattush, and Igeal, and Bariah, and Neariah, and Shaphat, six. (3:22) "The sons of Shemaiah; Hattush, and Igeal, and Bariah, and Neariah, and Shaphat, six."
Five sons of Shemiah are listed, not six as is said in this verse.
3:23 And the sons of Neariah; Elioenai, and Hezekiah, and Azrikam, three.
3:24 And the sons of Elioenai were, Hodaiah, and Eliashib, and Pelaiah, and Akkub, and Johanan, and Dalaiah, and Anani, seven.
