Whyte House Daily Reading of the Chronological Bible #283: 1 Chronicles 2:9-55 with Daniel Whyte III

This is Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International with the Whyte House Daily Reading of the Chronological Bible Episode #283, where I read the Holy Bible in the King James Version each day in chronological order. This unique viewpoint allows you to read the whole Bible as a single story and to see the unfolding of God’s plan in history. Today we are reading 1 Chronicles 2:9-55.

1 Chronicles 2:9-55
9 The sons also of Hez’-ron, that were born unto him; Je-rah’-meel, and Ram, and Che-lu’-bai.

10 And Ram begat Am-min’-a-dab; and Am-min’-a-dab begat Nah’-shon, prince of the children of Ju’-dah;

11 And Nah’-shon begat Sal’-ma, and Sal’-ma begat Bo’-az,

12 And Bo’-az begat O’-bed, and O’-bed begat Jes’-se,

13 And Jes’-se begat his firstborn E-li’-ab, and A-bin’-a-dab the second, and Shim’-ma the third,

14 Neth’-a-neel the fourth, Rad’-dai the fifth,

15 O’-zem the sixth, Da’-vid the seventh:

16 Whose sisters were Zer-u-i’-ah, and Ab’-i-gail. And the sons of Zer-u-i’-ah; Ab’-i-shai, and Jo’-ab, and As’-a-hel, three.

17 And Ab’-i-gail bare A-ma’-sa: and the father of A-ma’-sa was Je’-ther the Ish’-mee-lite.

18 And Ca’-leb the son of Hez’-ron begat children of A-zu’-bah his wife, and of Jer’-i-oth: her sons are these; Jesh’-er, and Sho’-bab, and Ar’-don.

19 And when A-zu’-bah was dead, Ca’-leb took unto him Eph’-rath, which bare him Hur.

20 And Hur begat U’-ri, and U’-ri begat Bez’-a-leel.

21 And afterward Hez’-ron went in to the daughter of Ma’-chir the father of Gil’-e-ad, whom he married when he was threescore years old; and she bare him Se’-gub.

22 And Se’-gub begat Ja’-ir, who had three and twenty cities in the land of Gil’-e-ad.

23 And he took Ge’-shur, and A’-ram, with the towns of Ja’-ir, from them, with Ke’-nath, and the towns thereof, even threescore cities. All these belonged to the sons of Ma’-chir the father of Gil’-e-ad.

24 And after that Hez’-ron was dead in Ca-leb-eph’-ra-tah, then A-bi’-ah Hez’-ron’s wife bare him Ash’-ur the father of Te-ko’-a.

25 And the sons of Je-rah’-meel the firstborn of Hez’-ron were, Ram the firstborn, and Bu’-nah, and O’-ren, and O’-zem, and A-hi’-jah.

26 Je-rah’-meel had also another wife, whose name was At’-a-rah; she was the mother of O’-nam.

27 And the sons of Ram the firstborn of Je-rah’-meel were, Ma’-az, and Ja’-min, and E’-ker.

28 And the sons of O’-nam were, Sham’-mai, and Ja’-da. And the sons of Sham’-mai; Na’-dab and A-bi’-shur.

29 And the name of the wife of A-bi’-shur was Ab’-i-hail, and she bare him Ah’-ban, and Mo’-lid.

30 And the sons of Na’-dab; Se’-led, and Appaim: but Se’-led died without children.

31 And the sons of Ap’-pa-im; Ish’-i. And the sons of Ish’-i; She’-shan. And the children of She’-shan; Ah’-lai.

32 And the sons of Ja’-da the brother of Sham’-mai; Je’-ther, and Jon’-a-than: and Jether died without children.

33 And the sons of Jon’-a-than; Pe’-leth, and Za’-za. These were the sons of Je-rah’-meel.

34 Now She’-shan had no sons, but daughters. And She’-shan had a servant, an E’-gyp-tian, whose name was Jar’-ha.

35 And She’-shan gave his daughter to Jar’-ha his servant to wife; and she bare him At’-tai.

36 And At’-tai begat Na’-than, and Na’-than begat Za’-bad,

42 Now the sons of Ca’-leb the brother of Je-rah’-meel were, Me’-sha his firstborn, which was the father of Ziph; and the sons of Ma-re’-shah the father of He’-bron.

43 And the sons of He’-bron; Ko’-rah, and Tap’-pu-ah, and Re’-kem, and She’-ma.

44 And She’-ma begat Ra’-ham, the father of Jor’-ko-am: and Re’-kem begat Sham’-mai.

45 And the son of Sham’-mai was Ma’-on: and Ma’-on was the father of Beth’-zur.

46 And E’-phah, Ca’-leb’s concubine, bare Ha’-ran, and Mo’-za, and Ga’-zez: and Ha’-ran begat Ga’-zez.

47 And the sons of Jah’-dai; Re’-gem, and Jo’-tham, and Ge’-sham, and Pe’-let, and E’-phah, and Sha’-aph.

48 Ma’-a-chah, Ca’-leb’s concubine, bare She’-ber, and Tir’-ha-nah.

49 She bare also Sha’-aph the father of Mad-man’-nah, She’-va the father of Mach-be’-nah, and the father of Gib’-e-a: and the daughter of Ca’-leb was Ach’-sa.

50 These were the sons of Ca’-leb the son of Hur, the firstborn of Eph’-ra-tah; Sho’-bal the father of Kir’-jath-je-a-rim.

52 And Sho’-bal the father of Kir’-jath-je-a-rim had sons; Haroeh, and half of the Man-a-he’-thites.

53 And the families of Kir’-jath-je-a-rim; the Ithrites, and the Pu’-hites, and the Shu’-ma-thites, and the Mish’-ra-ites; of them came the Za-re’-a-thites, and the Esh-ta-u’-lites,

54 The sons of Sal’-ma; Beth’-le-hem, and the Ne-toph’-athites, At’-a-roth, the house of Jo’-ab, and half of the Man-a-he’-thites, the Zo’-rites.

55 And the families of the scribes which dwelt at Ja’-bez; the Tir’-a-thites, the Shim’-e-a-thites, and Su’-cha-thites. These are the Ke’-nites that came of He’-math, the father of the house of Re’-chab.


When I was a teenager I wanted to get wisdom and knowledge, so I set out to read the big family Bible that many families had in those days. But I couldn’t get past Genesis 2 before I got bored with reading the Bible. I found out later in life that you have to believe on Christ and get saved before you can understand the Bible. So here is how I became a Christian and how you can too:

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 18:8: “Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the Cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour!

Jesus Christ said in John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”
