Context: Chapter 5 continues with the genealogy started in chapter 1.  Don’t worry!  This whole book is not genealogy!  In the first several chapters, the genealogy provides the history of Israel.  It tells from where the Israelites came, who their ancestors were, and how they came to be settled on the land they now occupy.  Remember when this book was written - as the Israelites returned from exile.  They would have had doubts and fears.  Had God abandoned them?  No!  God had played a part in their lives since Adam and He would continue to be a part of their lives. 

World History: Although possibly boring and tedious to read, the genealogy presented in the first nine chapters of 1 Chronicles is also our genealogy.  We all came from Adam.  As children of God, this is our history.
