Quick Reference

These OT Books record the history of Israel and Judah from the creation to the return from Exile (c.539 bc). In the Hebrew Bible they are a single Book; the division goes back to the Septuagint, where they are called ‘Paralipomenon’, i.e. ‘that which is left over’ (from Sam. and Kgs.). The term ‘Chronicles’ was introduced by St Jerome, whence it passed into English versions. The work appears to have been written in the latter half of the 4th cent. bc. On its historical value, opinion is divided.
