Explanation (Left to Right):
Name of the Judean King and secondary name (i.e. AKA) in parenthesis where applicable.
Narrative in I Chronicles.
Dates of his reign. (Dates are fairly accurate but not exact because varied methods of dating were used. This dating system is based on that found in The New Inductive Study Bible. “An overlap in reigns indicates a co-regency, such as a son ruling alongside his father.”)
