1 Chronicles Chapter 3 Summary


This is the summary of 1 Chronicle chapter 3. It began with a chronicle of the children of the king of Israel, King David. The king ruled in Hebron for the first seven and half years of his dominion and married six women.

He had a son by each of his six wives in Hebron, one wife was a foreigner; Maachah. She was the daughter of Talmai, king of Geshur, and she was the mother of Absalom. King David reigned in Jerusalem for the remainder of his years, which was thirty-three years there.

He had thirteen more sons there on record, including a daughter named Tamar. The children of his concubines were not documented in these chronicles. The chapter transitioned to one of David’s sons through Bathshua (Bathsheba, the beautiful and fine wife of Uriah the Hittite), king Solomon.

Many Sons of Solomon and David

Obviously, Solomon had many wives, who would have produced many children for the king, but Rehoboam is mentioned as the immediate son and descendant.

Then the rest of his sons are mentioned by lineage and not direct sons. Many of these were kings of Judah. The chapter concluded by listing the names of descendants carried to Babylon.

The most notable was Jeconiah (Jehoiachin), an ousted king of Judah, and Zerubbabel, a returning governor of those sent back to revive Jerusalem. This is the summary of 1st Chronicle chapter 3, glory to the ALMIGHTY GOD of Israel.
