Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 1:7-8

_ _ And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia begat Asa; 8. And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and Joram begat Ozias — or Uzziah. Three kings are here omitted — Ahaziah, Joash, and Amaziah (1 Chronicles 3:11, 1 Chronicles 3:12). Some omissions behooved to be made, to compress the whole into three fourteens (Matthew 1:17). The reason why these, rather than other names, are omitted, must be sought in religious considerations — either in the connection of those kings with the house of Ahab (as Lightfoot, Ebrard, and Alford view it); in their slender right to be regarded as true links in the theocratic chain (as Lange takes it); or in some similar disqualification.
