1 Chronicles 8:9 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The sons of Bela. Of the six names borne by these sons, גּרא is twice met with; נעמן is found in Genesis 46:21 as the son, and in Numbers 26:40 as grandson of Benjamin; שׁפוּפן is another form of שׁפוּפם, Numbers 26:39; and חוּרם may be a transcriber's error for chuwpaam, Numbers 26:39, just as אדּר probably stands for ארדּ, Genesis 46:21. The occurrence of the name Gera would be incomprehensible only if בּנים denoted sons in the narrower sense of the word; but if בּנים fi tub are sons in the wider sense, i.e., descendants who founded fathers'-houses (groups of related households), two cousins might have the same name. In that case, Addar, Shephuphan, and Huram also may be different persons from Ard, Shephupham, and Hupham. Abihud and Abishua are met with as descendants of Benjamin only here, and 'achowach may be connected with אחיּה, 1 Chronicles 8:7.

Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

Hodesh In the preceding verse it is said that `Hushim and Baara were his wives;' and here it said, `he begat of Hodesh his wife,' and then in the eleventh verse, his children by Hushim are mentioned, but not a word of Baara. It is probable, therefore, that Hodesh was another name for Baara; and this is asserted by the Targumist: `And he begat of Baara, that is, of Chodesh, his wife, so called because he espoused her anew.'
