Sentence search

Ahlai - Ahlai's father was Sheshan. 1 Chronicles 2:34 says Sheshan had no sons, only daughters. This makes Ahlai either a daughter of Sheshan or part of a Hebrew text that is incomplete due to copying errors. Some would identify Ahlai with Sheshan's grandson Attai ( 1 Chronicles 2:35 ). Others think Sheshan changed his servant's Jarha's name to Ahlai when he made Jarha his son-in-law (1 Chronicles 2:35 )
