Not illustrated. 1880 Excerpt: ...to Merari as distinct from the drafts traced to his two well-known sons. Instead of the one son mentioned in the previous verse, four sons or descendants are here assigned to Jaaziah, who were heads of drafts. These with Jaaziah himself make five. There is no reason for supposing this passage to be an interpolation, except its difficulty and unexpectedness to us. But this is rather an argument in favour of its genuineness. Vers. 28, 29.
