Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Chronicles 2:35

_ _ Sheshan gave his daughter to Jarha his servant to wife — The adoption and marriage of a foreign slave in the family where he is serving, is far from being a rare or extraordinary occurrence in Eastern countries. It is thought, however, by some to have been a connection not sanctioned by the law of Moses [Michaelis]. But this is not a well-founded objection, as the history of the Jews furnishes not a few examples of foreign proselytes in the same manner obtaining an inheritance in Israel; and doubtless Jarha had previously embraced the Jewish faith in place of the groveling idolatries of his native Egypt. In such a case, therefore, there could be no legal difficulty. Being a foreign slave, he had no inheritance in a different tribe to injure by this connection; while his marriage with Sheshan’s daughter led to his adoption into the tribe of Judah, as well as his becoming heir of the family property.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Chronicles 2:18-55.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Chronicles 2:35

Jarha — Probably he was not only a proselyte, but an eminent man: else an Israelite would not have given him his only daughter.

Sheshan:
When the people of the East have no sons, they frequently marry their daughters to their slaves, even when they have much property to bestow upon them. Hassan had been the slave of Kamel, his predecessor; but Kamel, according to the custom of the country, gave him one of his daughters in marriage, and left him at his death one part of his great riches which he had amassed in the course of a long and prosperous life (Maillet, Lett. xi. p. 118).

his daughter:

1 Chronicles 2:31 And the sons of Appaim; Ishi. And the sons of Ishi; Sheshan. And the children of Sheshan; Ahlai.

Attai:
i.e. opportune, [Strong's H6262],
1 Chronicles 2:36 And Attai begat Nathan, and Nathan begat Zabad,
1 Chronicles 12:11 Attai the sixth, Eliel the seventh,
2 Chronicles 11:20 And after her he took Maachah the daughter of Absalom; which bare him Abijah, and Attai, and Ziza, and Shelomith.
