After tying his account to the record in 1 Samuel by practically copying 1 Samuel 31:1-13 in verses 1-12 of 1 Chronicles 10, the writer of Chronicles proceeds immediately to the establishment of the Davidic monarchy and the subsequent history of David until his death. Then, in 2 Chronicles, he details the further history of Judah until its exile in Babylon, with only incidental references to the ten-tribe northern kingdom of Israel. The accounts were probably originally written for the benefit of the returning exiles.
