Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Chronicles 7:7

_ _ the sons of Bela — Each of them was chief or leader of the family to which he belonged. In an earlier period seven great families of Benjamin are mentioned (Numbers 26:38), five of them being headed by these five sons of Benjamin, and two descended from Bela. Here five families of Bela are specified, whence we are led to conclude that time or the ravages of war had greatly changed the condition of Benjamin, or that the five families of Bela were subordinate to the other great divisions that sprang directly from the five sons of the patriarch.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Chronicles 7:1-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Chronicles 7:7

Heads — Each of them head of that family to which he belonged. For it may seem by comparing this with 1 Chronicles 8:3, &c. that these were not the immediate sons of Belah, but his Grand — children descended each from a several father.
