book of Samuel the seer
1 Chronicles 29:29
29:29 book of Samuel the seer. The “book of Samuel the seer” undoubtedly means I and II Samuel. However, the books of Nathan and Gad have been lost. Other ancient books mentioned in the Old Testament include the book of Jasher (Joshua 10:13; II Samuel 1:18); the book of the acts of Solomon (I Kings 11:41); the book of the Chronicles of the kings of Judah (I Kings 14:29); etc.); the prophecy of Ahijah the Shilonite and the visions of Iddo the Seer (II Chronicles 9:29); the book of Shemaiah the Prophet (II Chronicles 12:15); the story of the book of the kings (II Chronicles 24:27); the book of Jehu (II Chronicles 20:34); and the book of the wars of the Lord” (Numbers 21:14). Probably none of these were divinely inspired, as our present canonical books, but the portions incorporated by Ezra or others in their own inspired writings were so used by inspiration.
