The record continues with the occasional side note explaining why these particular figures are important but without going into detail. At 5:17 we have the statement that “All these were entered in the genealogical records during the reigns of Jotham king of Judah and Jeroboam king of Israel.”

The chronicler then turns to the half-tribe of Manasseh before focussing on the Levites for all of chapter six. He lists the descendents of Levi, the temple musicians and helpers and focuses on Aaron and the Kohathite clans. That this much attention was given to the Levites shows the chronicler’s concern for the temple workers and their inheritance.
