1 Chronicles 9:1

Adam Clarke
Bible Commentary

Were reckoned by genealogies - Jarchi considers these as the words of Ezra, the compiler of the book; as if he had said: I have given the genealogies of the Israelites as I have found them in a book which was carried into Babylon, when the people were carried thither for their transgressions; and this book which I found is that which I have transcribed in the preceding chapters.

Albert Barnes
Notes on the Whole Bible

Rather, “So all Israel were reckoned … the kings of Israel. And Judah was carried away captive to Babylon for their transgressions.”
