17这样 ,从 亚伯拉罕 到 大卫 共有十四 代 ;从 大卫 到 迁至 巴比伦 的时候也有十四 代 ;从 迁至 巴比伦 的时候到 基督 又有十四 代 。
17So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.
17 Verse 17. Fourteen generations] See Clarke on Mt 1:11.

The Jews had a sort of technical method of summing up generations in

this way. In Synopsis Sohar, p. 132, n. 18, we have the following

words; "From Abraham to Solomon were fifteen generations; and then

the moon was at the full. From Solomon to Zedekiah were other

fifteen generations; the moon was then in the wane, and Zedekiah's

eyes were put out." That is, the regal state came to its zenith

of light and glory in the time of Solomon; but decreased

gradually, till it became nearly extinct in the days of Zedekiah.

See Schoetgen.
