8 And Asa begot Jehoshaphat, and Jehoshaphat begot Joram, and 1Joram begot Uzziah,
81 The genealogy here records that "Joram begot Uzziah." However, 1 Chron. 3:11-12 says, "Joram his son, Ahaziah his son, Joash his son, Amaziah his son, Azariah" (who is Uzziah 2 Kings 15:1, 13). Three generations Ahaziah, Joash, and Amaziah were omitted. This must have been because of the evil marriage of Joram and the daughter of Ahab and Jezebel, which corrupted Joram's descendants (2 Chron. 21:5-6; 22:1-4). In accordance with Exo. 20:5, three generations of Joram's descendants were cut off from the genealogy of Christ.
