    Clarke's Commentary on 1 Chronicles 2:1

    These are the sons of Israel - For this genealogy see the parallel places at Genesis 29:32; Genesis 30:5; Genesis 35:18, Genesis 35:22; Genesis 46:8, etc.

    Barnes' Notes on 1 Chronicles 2:1

    The sons of Israel - The order of the names here approximates to an order determined by legitimacy of birth. A single change - the removal of Dan to the place after Benjamin - would give the following result:

    (1) The six sons of the first wife, Leah.

    (2) the two sons of the second wife, Rachel.

    (3) the two sons of the first concubine, Bilhah.

    (4) the two sons of the second concubine, Zilpah.

    Dan's undue prominency may, perhaps, be accounted for by his occupying the seventh place in the "blessing of Jacob" Genesis 49:16.
