This is a textual analysis rather than a theological or historical commentary - of value to translators rather than pastors or teachers. It assumes a knowledge of Hebrew and an interest in manuscript variants and translational difficulties. There is little insight into the historical or theological context, and no help for a reader wanting to understand the motivations and consequences of the progression to elaborate ceremonial Temple worship replacing the earlier expressions of devotion to Yahweh derived from Moses. I learned more from H L Ellison in The New Bible Commentary Revised, IVP 1970.

Difficult assignment 26 Dec. 2013
By Doug Erlandson - Published on
Format: Hardcover
For quite some time I've thought that one of the most difficult assignments for an Old Testament scholar is writing a commentary on 1 Chronicles. When Roddy Braun's commentary of this book came to my attention I was curious to see how he would handle this book. Would he pay adequate attention to the genealogical section, knowing that for many readers these genealogies are simply passed over? Would he examine in depth the chapters that deal with the assignments of the musicians and the other Levites and would he show why the Chronicler regarded these as important? Would he adequately explain why it is that the Chronicler omitted a significant part of the reign of David that is found in 1 Kings and why those parts omitted generally deal with the turmoil in David's reign that resulted from his sin with Bathsheba (an event not mentioned by the Chronicler)? And why, on the other hand, the Chronicler includes the numbering of the fighting men, despite the fact that David did this in disobedience to God?

The answer to all these questions is a resounding "Yes." But there is far more to this commentary than an in-depth discussion of those questions. The introductory material in particular is valuable as Braun discusses the authorship of the Chronicles, taking the position that has become more widespread among scholars––namely, that the author is someone other than the author of Ezra-Nehemiah.

This commentary is first and foremost a work of serious scholarship and hence is best suited for the serious OT student. However, it is clearly enough written that the layperson who wants an explanation of a particular passage can benefit.
