1Ch 3:16,18. Brother of Salathiel or Shealtiel; son, i.e. grandson, of Jeconiah. Zedekiah, Jeconiah's son (not the Zedekiah his uncle, last king: 2Ki 24:17), died "childless" (Jer 22:30). Assir, another son, left only a daughter who, according to the law of heiresses (Nu 27:8), married into her paternal tribe, namely, Neri, sprung from Nathan, David's son (Keil). Lord A. Hervey makes Nedabiah, etc., sons of Neri in lineal descent, the list in Chronicles only giving the order of succession.
