In this chapter we have some account of the
genealogies, I. Of Issachar, ver.
1-5. II. Of Benjamin, ver. 6-12. III. Of Naphtali, ver. 13. IV. Of Manasseh, ver. 14-19. V. Of Ephraim,
ver. 20-29. VI. Of
Asher, ver. 30-40. Here
is no account either of Zebulun or Dan. Why they only should be
omitted we can assign no reason; only it is the disgrace of the
tribe of Dan that idolatry began in that colony of the Danites
which fixed in Laish, and called Dan, and there one of the golden
calves was set up by Jeroboam. Dan is omitted, Rev. vii.
