MAHOL

HUSBAND:
MAHOL. [Familytree].
Born about 1700 B.C.; son of ZERAH and ELECTRA.

The Book of First Chronicles states:
And the sons of Zerah; Zimri, and Ethan, and Heman, and Calcol, and Dara: five of them in all. 1 Chronicles 2:6

We note here that Mahol is not listed as a son of Zarah. However, the Book of 1 Kings, says of Mahol:
For he [Solomon] was wiser than all men; than Ethan the Ezrahite, and Heman, and Chalcol, and Darda, the sons of Mahol: and his fame was in all nations round about. 1 Kings 4:31

Note that 1 Chronicles skips over a generation, but 1 Kings indicates that the correct descent is Zarah, then Mahol, then the sons of Mahol:

This then clarifys that the five sons; Zimri, Ethan, Heman, Calcol, and Dara (Darda) are the sons of Mahol, who was the son of Zerah.

These are listed among the sons of Mahol, one of the four who were noted for their wisdom, but whom Solomon excelled. (S2).

Note that other scriptures set a precedence in using the word sons when they are really speaking of descendants:

Did not Achan the son of Zerah commit a trespass in the accursed thing, and wrath fell on all the congregation of Israel? and that man perished not alone in his iniquity. Joshua 22:20

And of the sons of Zerah; Jeuel, and their brethren, six hundred and ninety. 1 Chronicles 9:6

Of further note is the name of Ezra, who is mentioned in the Irish genealogies as the son of Zerah. Here we present the case that Ezra is the same as Mahol. We have already noted from 1 Kings 4:31 that Mahol was the son of Zarah. We have also noted the scripture in 1 Chronicles 2:6 that lists the five sons that were referenced. Verse 8 of 1 Chronicles Chapter 2 states:

And the sons of Ethan; Azariah.

We have already seen in 1 Kings 4:31 that Ethan is called Ethan the Ezrahite.

Thus Azariah is the son of Ethan, who was the son of Mahol, who was the son of Zarah. Therefore, the Ezra of the Irish genealogies must be the same as Mahol of 1 Kings.

CHILDREN of MAHOL:
  1. Zimri. (Zabdi?).
  2. Ethan, the Ezrahite. [CHART A40]. 1 Kings 4:31
  3. Heman.
  4. Chalcol. A group under the leadership of Calcol, a prince of the tribe of Judah, went westward across the Mediterranean eventually settling in Ulster [Ireland]. (S?). Some identify Calcol with King Cecrops I of Athens, but this is questionable.
  5. Iasus. (Jasius)(Jason?). Also said to be a brother of Dardanus. Dardanus and Jasius emigrated from Etruria. Dardanus went to Phrygia, where he founded the Dardanian kingdom, and Jasius went to Samothrace, after they had previously divided the Penates between themselves. Iasus, in spite of his good fortune and status, gave nothing to his younger brother Dardanus and made him look like a slave by comparison. Dardanus became jealous and fought against Iasus, and many of the population were drawn into an inconclusive civil war. Dardanus killed his brother Iasus while he was washing at a spring, an act that was considered reprehensible throughout the kingdom. Dardanus had no choice but to sail off, together with some of his followers, and he went to Asia Minor and built up the kingdom of Troy. In the meantime, Coribantus, the son of Iasus, became king of Italy but not of France. (S2).
  6. DARDANUS. (Dara)(Darda). [familytree]. Founder of Troy. (Dardanus Benzerah), King of (Acadia) Troy Also King of DARDANIA was born (about 1710 B.C.-S6)(about 1675 to 1650)(1477) in Rameses, Goshen, Egypt. Called a pearl of wisdom, one of the four who were noted for their wisdom, but whom Solomon excelled. He married BATEA (Bateia), Princess of Troy. According to legend, during the reign of Teucer, DARDANUS drifted from the island of Samothrace in the Aegean to the Troad, following a great deluge in the Mediterranean area, named after him, The Flood of Dardanus. After he arrived in the Troad, Dardanus received a grant of land from Teucer and married his daughter Batea, shortly thereafter founding the city of DARDANIA at the foot of MOUNT IDA. On the death of Teucer, Dardanus succeeded him as king, and called the whole land DARDANIA. Dardanus died (about 1610 B.C.-S6)(1412) in (Rameses, Goshen, Egypt-s?)(probably in the city of Dardanus which he founded). [Due to the timining, we surmise that Dardanus is a descendant, rather than a son, of Mahol].
