1 Chronicles Bible Background

Old Testament: 1Ch 7.13

To read the Bible in a year, read First Chronicles 6–7 on May 22, In the year of our Lord 2020

By Don Ruhl

First Chronicles begins with a lengthy list of various genealogies of the families of Israel. Of Israel’s son Naphtali, the Bible says,

The sons of Naphtali were Jahziel, Guni, Jezer, and Shallum, the sons of Bilhah.

– 1 Chronicles 7.13

The Bible here does not say much about Naphtali. In Numbers 1.42–43, the Bible says that the warriors of Naphtali that came out of Egypt, numbered 53,400. Therefore, it was a significant tribe, as all of the tribes of Israel were. It did not rise to the status that Judah did, but still the Lord knew every person from Naphtali!
