Hebrew Name and Meaning of the Book of Chronicles
Hebrew Name - Divrei Hayamim "Words of the Days". The books of
Chronicles were originally one book, as in the case of Samuel
and Kings. The Hebrew title is translated the "words of the
days", yet the word Chronicles is mainly adopted by a
theologian named Jerome who thought that they ought to bear
the title from the Greek word for time which is "Chronos".
This title created a distraction from the true meaning and
purpose of this wonderful book.
