1 Chronicles 4:9 Parallel
CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
It is remarkable that Jabez should be introduced without description, or patronymic, as if a well-known personage. We can only suppose that he was known to those for whom Chronicles was written, either by tradition, or by writings which have perished. In 1 Chronicles 4:10 Jabez alludes to his name, "sorrowful" (margin): "Grant that the grief implied in my name may not come upon me!"
1 Chronicles 4:8
Koz became the father of Anub and Zobebah, and the families of Aharhel the son of Harum.
1 Chronicles 4:10
Now Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, "Oh that You would bless me indeed and enlarge my border, and that Your hand might be with me, and that You would keep me from harm that it may not pain me!" And God granted him what he requested.
