11犹太人被掳到巴比伦的时候,约西亚生耶哥尼雅和他的兄弟。
11And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon:
11 Verse 11. Josias begat Jechonias, &c.] There are three

considerable difficulties in this verse.

1. Josias was not the father of Jechonias; he was only the

grandfather of that prince: .

2. Jechonias had no brethren; at least, none are on record.

3. Josias died 20 years before the Babylonish captivity took

place, and therefore Jechonias and his brethren could not have

been begotten about the time they were carried away to Babylon.

To this way be added a fourth difficulty, viz. there are only

thirteen in this 2nd class of generations; or forty-one, instead

of forty-two, in the whole. But all these difficulties disappear,

by adopting a reading found in many MSS. ιοωσιαςδεεγεννησετος

ιωακειμ� ιωακειμδεεγεννησετονιεχονιαν. And Josias begat

JEHOIAKIM, or Joakim, and JOAKIM begat Jechonias. For this

reading, see the authorities in Griesbach. Josiah was the

immediate father of Jehoiakim (called also Eliakeim and Joakim)

and his brethren, who were Johanan, Zedekiah, and Shallum: see

.

Joakim was the father of Joachin or Jechonias, about the time of

the first Babylonish captivity: for we may reckon three Babylonish

captivities. The first happened in the fourth year of Joakim, son

of Josiah, about A. M. 3398. In this year, Nebuchadnezzar, having

taken Jerusalem, led a great number of captives to Babylon. The

second captivity happened under Jechoniah, son of Joakim; who,

having reigned three months, was taken prisoner in 3405, and was

carried to Babylon, with a great number of the Jewish nobility.

The third captivity took place under Zedekiah, A. M. 3416. And

thus, says Calmet, should be read:

Josias begat Joakim and his brethren: and Joakim begat Jechonias

about the time of the first Babylonish captivity; and Jechonias

begat Salathiel, after they were brought to Babylon. Thus, with

the necessary addition of Joakim, the three classes, each

containing fourteen generations, are complete. And to make this

the more evident, I shall set down each of these three generations

in a separate column, with the additional Joakim, that the reader

may have them all at one view.
