1 Chronicles chapter 7

Verses 1-5 – The tribe of Issachar is mentioned primarily for the number of soldiers it supplied and its meticulous genealogies.

Verse 14 – Manasseh’s wife was Aramean, another Gentile who was included in the lines of descent.

Verse 15 – Zelophehad had five daughters who asked Moses to give them their inheritance in the land. Moses granted their request. This event set a precedent that woman could inherit property, something that most surrounding cultures did not allow.

Verses 20-29 – Ephraim was one of the leading tribes, a consistent rival to Judah.

Verses 30-40 – A descendant of Asher was the prophetess Anna. She praised God in the temple for the birth of Jesus.
