1 Chronicles 11:1
11:1 Hebron. After tying his account to the record in I Samuel by practically copying I Samuel 31:1-13, the writer of Chronicles 10:1-12 proceeds immediately to the establishment of the Davidic monarchy and the subsequent history of David until his death. Then, in II Chronicles, he details the further history of Judah until its exile in Babylon, with only incidental references to the ten-tribe northern kingdom of Israel. The accounts were probably originally written for the benefit of the returning exiles.
