Treasury of Scripture

The sons of Shemaiah; Othni, and Rephael, and Obed, Elzabad, whose brothers were strong men, Elihu, and Semachiah.











(7) And Obed, Elzabad.--This is probably corrupt, as the conjunction, which is used with the preceding names, is wanting between Obed and Elzabad. Probably Obed-Elzabad is a corruption of some single name, perhaps Obed-el: (comp. the Syriac and Arabic, Ubdael and Ufidilu), or Abdiel (1Chronicles 5:15; Syriac, Abdael; Arabic, Afadilu); see Note on 1Chronicles 26:12. (Those two versions, however, give six names, while the LXX. gives eight.)

Whose brethren were strong men.--The Hebrew has "his brethren." The conjunction appears to be missing again. Read: And his brethren, sons of strength, Elihu and Semachiah.
