1 Chronicles 1:28

King James Version (KJV)
Albert Barnes
Notes on the Whole Bible

Isaac and Ishmael - Isaac, though younger than Ishmael, is placed first, as the legitimate heir, since Sarah alone was Abraham‘s true wife (compare the 1 Chronicles 1:36 note).

Matthew Henry
Concise Bible Commentary
The genealogy is from hence confined to the posterity of Abraham. Let us take occasion from reading these lists of names, to think of the multitudes that have gone through this world, have done their parts in it, and then quitted it. As one generation, even of sinful men, passes away, another comes. Ec 1:4; Nu 32:14, and will do so while the earth remains. Short is our passage through time into eternity. May we be distinguished as the Lord's people.
