SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:3 Y estas son las del padre de Etam: Jezreel, Isma, e Ibdas. Y el nombre de su hermana fue Haze-lelponi.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Chronicles 4:3 Verse 3. These were of the father of Etam] "And these are the rabbins (doctors) living at Etam, Jezreel, Ishma, and Idbash." -T.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 3. And these were of the father of Etam , etc.] Or of the prince of Etam: or, as the Targum, these are princes that dwelt in Etam, a place not far from Zorah, ( Judges 15:8) and is mentioned with Bethlehem and Tekoa in the tribe of Judah, ( 2 Chronicles 11:6), namely, which follow: Jezreel, and Ishma, and Idbash ; these were the sons of the governor of Etam: and the name of their sister was Hazelelponi ; who, perhaps, was a person of great note in those days, though now unknown; indeed, a Jewish chronologer tells us, that the mother of Samson was Hazalelponith, of the tribe of Judah. Ver. 4 . And Penuel the father of Gedor , etc.] The prince of that place, according to some, and the same with Hareph, ( 1 Chronicles 2:51), and Ezer the father of Hushah : thought to be the same with Shuah, ( Chronicles 4:11), these are the sons of Hur, the firstborn of Ephratah : Calebís wife, ( Chronicles 2:19) the Targum adds, the same with Miriam; and so other Jewish writers say, Miriam had two names, and one was Ephratah; though Josephus makes Hur to be her husband, and not her son, as here: who was the father of Bethlehem ; of the inhabitants of that city, at least part of them, or prince of that place, as his grandson Salma also was, ( Chronicles 2:51).
Matthew Henry Commentary Genealogies.
--In this chapter we have a further account of Judah, the most numerou and most famous of all the tribes; also an account of Simeon. The mos remarkable person in this chapter is Jabez. We are not told upon what account Jabez was more honourable than his brethren; but we find tha he was a praying man. The way to be truly great, is to seek to do God' will, and to pray earnestly. Here is the prayer he made. Jabez praye to the living and true God, who alone can hear and answer prayer; and in prayer he regarded him as a God in covenant with his people. He doe not express his promise, but leaves it to be understood; he was afrai to promise in his own strength, and resolved to devote himself entirel to God. Lord, if thou wilt bless me and keep me, do what thou wilt with me; I will be at thy command and disposal for ever. As the text read it, this was the language of a most ardent and affectionate desire, O that thou wouldest bless me! Four things Jabez prayed for. 1. That God would bless him indeed. Spiritual blessings are the best blessings God's blessings are real things, and produce real effects. 2. That He would enlarge his coast. That God would enlarge our hearts, and s enlarge our portion in himself, and in the heavenly Canaan, ought to be our desire and prayer. 3. That God's hand might be with him. God's han with us, to lead us, protect us, strengthen us, and to work all ou works in us and for us, is a hand all-sufficient for us. 4. That he would keep him from evil, the evil of sin, the evil of trouble, all the evil designs of his enemies, that they might not hurt, nor make him Jabez indeed, a man of sorrow. God granted that which he requested. God is ever ready to hear prayer: his ear is not now heavy __________________________________________________________________
