Sample text

Under the supervision of the Levites they can fulfil their obligations to God. They come 'from all the tribes of Israel': although it is only a partial participation, they come, nonetheless, from the ideal twelve tribes, even including those in Jeroboam's breakaway state. In contrast to the vocabulary of rejection, C now uses the vocabulary of commitment: all 'who put their minds to it'. He has already used this turn of phrase in connection with according God his rights in 1 Chron. 19, the climactic verse in David's exhortation to the community leaders at the time of the preparation for building the Temple and the designation of Solomon.

Nothing further is known of Shemaiah: he appears in the Hebrew Bible only here (and in the parallel in Kings) and in the next chapter, 2 Chron. 5, 7, 15. But his name, 'the LORD has heard', is a suitably absolute theological comment on events. Perhaps even Shemaiah's name is intended in this context to mean the imperative 'hear the LORD'—which indeed the people at last do at the end of v. 4. There may also be intended a deliberate contrast with 'the king did not hear the people' of 2 Chron. 15, 16.

The name of Abijah's mother (v. 2a) is quite different from that given in Kings (and contradicts also C's own information in 2 Chron. '), daughter of Uriel ('my light is God'), as opposed to Maacah, daughter of Absalom.
