1 Chronicles 9:1-2 Expanded Bible (EXB)
The People in Jerusalem
9 The names of all the people of Israel were listed in their ·family histories [genealogical records], and those ·family histories [genealogical records] were put in the ·book [scroll] of the kings of Israel.
The people of Judah were captured and ·forced to go [exiled] to Babylon [2 Kin. 25:1–21; 2 Chr. 36:17–21], because ·they were not faithful to God [of their unfaithfulness/infidelity]. 2 The first people to come back and live in their own lands and towns were some Israelites, priests, Levites, and ·Temple [L house] servants.
