SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:1 Â¶ Adán, Set, Enós,
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Chronicles 1:1 Verse 1. Adam, Sheth, Enosh] That is, Adam was the father of Sheth or Seth. Seth was the father of Enosh, Enosh the father of Kenan, and so on.
No notice is taken of Cain and Hebel, or of any of the other sons of Adam.
One line of patriarchs, from Adam to Noah, is what the historian intended to give; and to have mentioned the posterity of Cain or Hebel would have been useless, as Noah was not the immediate descendant of either. Besides, all their posterity had perished in the deluge, none remaining of the Adamic family but Noah and his children; and from these all the nations of the earth sprang.
How learned must those men be who can take for a text "The first verse of the first chapter of the first book of CHRONICLES." and find a mystery in each name; which, in the aggregate, amounts to a full view of the original perfection, subsequent fall, consequent misery, and final restoration, of MAN! O ye profound illustrators of the names of men and cities! why do ye not give us the key of your wisdom, write comments, and enlighten the world?
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1-4 . Adam, Seth , etc.] These first four verses exactly agree with the account of the antediluvian patriarchs in ( Genesis 5:1-32), the first letter in Adam is larger than usual, as a memorial, as Buxtorf observes, of the first and only man, from whence mankind had their beginning, and whose history the author had undertaken to write.

Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-27 - This chapter, and many that follow, repeat the genealogies, or lists of fathers and children in the Bible history, and put them together, with many added. When compared with other places, there are some difference found; yet we must not therefore stumble at the word, but bless God that the things necessary to salvation are plain enough. The origina of the Jewish nation is here traced from the first man that God created, and is thereby distinguished from the obscure, fabulous, an absurd origins assigned to other nations. But the nations now are all so mingled with one another, that no one nation, nor the greatest par of any, is descended entirely from any of one nation, nor the greates part of any, is descended entirely from any of these fountains. Onl this we are sure of, that God has created of one blood all nations of men; they are all descended from one Adam, one Noah. Have we not all one father? Has not one God created us? Mal 2:10.
