12被掳到巴比伦以后,耶哥尼雅生撒拉铁,撒拉铁生所罗巴伯,
12 And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;
12 Verse 12. Jechonias begat Salathiel] After Jechonias was

brought to Babylon, he was put in prison by Nebuchadnezzar, where

he continued till the death of this prince, and the accession of

Evilmerodach, who brought him out of prison, in which he had been

detained thirty-seven years, and restored him to such favour that

his throne (seat) was exalted above all the kings which were with

him in Babylon: . But though he thus became a royal

favourite, he was never restored to his kingdom. And, according

to the prophecy of Jeremiah, , no man of his seed

sat upon the throne of David; yet the regal line was continued

through his son Salathiel, who died in Babylon: but Zorobabel, his

son, returned from captivity, and by him the race of David was

continued, according to Matthew, by Abiud; and, according to Luke,

by Rhesa. See on , &c.



The term carrying away to Babylon, μετοικεσια, from μετοικεω,

to change a habitation, or place of residence, would be more

properly translated by the word transportation, which is here

peculiarly appropriate: the change was not voluntary; they were

forced away.
