IX.

(3) And in Jerusalem dwelt (some) of the children of Judah, and (some) of the children of Benjamin.--This sentence is word for word the same with Nehemiah 11:4 a. The next clause, "and some of the children of Ephraim, and Manasseh," is not found in Nehemiah, and nothing further is said in the present chapter concerning these two tribes. But so far from proving the clause to be a figment of the chronicler's, this fact only indicates that he has chosen to use the ordinary freedom of a compiler in transcribing from the fuller document which supplied him with materials here and in Nehemiah 11. His source dealt with the neighbouring townships as well as Jerusalem; the latter is the sole subject of the chronicler's extracts here.

Verse 3. - And of the children of Ephraim, and Manasseh. These words are not found in Nehemiah 11:4.
