1 Chronicles 3:19

Adam Clarke
Bible Commentary

The sons of Pedaiah - Houbigant thinks these words should be omitted. Pedaiah is wanting in the Arabic and Syriac. If this be omitted, Zerubbabel will appear to be the son of Salathiel, according to Matthew 1:12, and not the son of Pedaiah, as here stated.

Albert Barnes
Notes on the Whole Bible

Zerubbabel, elsewhere always called “the son of Salathiel,” was only Salathiel‘s heir and legal son, being naturally his nephew, the son of his brother, Pedaiah.
