THE FIRST BOOK OF PARALIPOMENON
These Books are called by the Greek interpreters Paralipomenon that
is of things left out or omitted; because they are a kind of a
supplement of such things as were passed over in the books of the Kings.
The Hebrews call them Dibre Haijamim that is The words of the days or
The Chronicles.--Not that they are the books which are so often quoted
in the Kings under the title of the words of the days of the kings of
Israel and of the kings of Juda: for the books of Paralipomenon were
written after the books of Kings: but because in all probability they
have been abridged from those ancient words of the days by Esdras or
some other sacred writer.
