SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:2 Y el nombre de su hijo primogénito fue Joel, y el nombre del segundo, Abías; los cuales fueron jueces en Beerseba.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 2. Now the name of his firstborn was Joel , etc.] In ( 1 Chronicles 6:28) he is called Vashni; (see Gill on “ 1 Chronicles 6:28”). This was not Joel the prophet, as some have thought, neither his parentage, nor his office, nor his times, will agree with this: and the name of his second Abiah : which two sons seem to be all he had: they were judges in Beersheba ; in the utmost border of the land, to the south, as Ramah, where Samuel dwelt and judged, was more to the north; where they were placed by their father, for the greater convenience of the people of Israel that lived southward, to bring their causes to them, as those lived more northward might bring them to him: according to Josephus f150 , they were placed by their father, the one in Bethel, one of the places Samuel used to go to in his circuit and judge, and the other at Beersheba. But some, as Junius and others, think it should be rendered, “unto Beersheba”; and so takes in its opposite, Dan, which lay at the utmost border of the land northward; hence the phrase, “from Dan to Beersheba”; and that the one was settled at Dan for the sake of the northern part of the land, and the other at Beersheba, for the sake of the southern: or rather these sons of Samuel placed themselves at Beersheba; which was an ill judged thing, to be both in one place, and which must give the people of Israel a great deal of trouble, and put them to a large expense to come from all quarters thither, to have their causes tried; but that is not the worst.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-3 - It does not appear that Samuel's sons were so profane and vicious a Eli's sons; but they were corrupt judges, they turned aside afte lucre. Samuel took no bribes, but his sons did, and then they perverte judgment. What added to the grievance of the people was, that they wer threatened by an invasion from Nahash, king of the Ammonites.
