1 Chronicles 8:5 Parallel
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Descendants of Helem-in 1 Chronicles 7:35 sons, in 1 Chronicles 7:36-38 grandsons.

As Helem is called אהיו, "his brother" (i.e., the brother of the Shemer mentioned in 1 Chronicles 7:34), הלם would seem to be the third son of Heber, who is called in 1 Chronicles 7:32 חותם. If so, one of the two names must have resulted from an error in transcription; but it is now impossible to determine which is the original and correct form of the name. Eleven names are introduced as those of the sons of Zophah (1 Chronicles 7:36, 1 Chronicles 7:37); and in 1 Chronicles 7:38 we have, besides, three sons of Jether (יתר), who is called in 1 Chronicles 7:38 יתרן. In 1 Chronicles 7:39 there follow three names, those of the sons of Ulla; on which Bertheau rightly remarks, the whole character of our enumeration would lead us to conjecture that עלּא had already occurred among the preceding names, although we find neither this name nor any similar one, with which it might be identified, in the preceding list.

Judges 3:15 But when the children of Israel cried to the LORD, the LORD raised them up a deliverer, Ehud the son of Gera, a Benjamite...

Shephuphan () Shuppim seems to be merely a contracted form of () Shupham, or rather, Shephupman, which, by the mutation of {mem} into {noon} is here changed into {Shephupham}.

1 Chronicles 7:12 Shuppim also, and Huppim, the children of Ir, and Hushim, the sons of Aher.


Numbers 26:39 Of Shupham, the family of the Shuphamites: of Hupham, the family of the Huphamites.

Huram Huram appears to be an error for Hupham in the parallel passage of Numbers, which, by contraction, is written {Huppim.}
