1 Chronicles 1: From Adam To The Seed Of Abraham

"And Abraham begat Isaac. The sons of Isaac; Esau and Israel"

The first chapter of 1 Chronicles documents the Messianic genealogy from Adam to Abraham. The parallel lines of all of humanity are included because "Israel" was created from all nations (e.g. see The LORD's Seed Covenants With The Two Men Of Iraq, A Biography Of Jacob: The Jacobites Of Syria, The First Jews, Ruth: Building The House Of Israel and The Adoption Of Ephraim and Manasseh) - as an object-lesson prophecy of how the Kingdom of God will be inhabited by the children of God who will be born from all nations (see What Was The Lesson Of John 3:16? and The Church: Mission Accomplished).

The creation of "Adam" (from the Hebrew word pronounced aw-dawm which means man as a species, male and female i.e. "1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them" Genesis 1:27 KJV; see Adam and Adamah) to the lines of Noah, from whom all human life today is also descended:

Earth

"1:1 Adam, Sheth, Enosh, 1:2 Kenan, Mahalaleel, Jered, 1:3 Henoch, Methuselah, Lamech, 1:4 Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

1:5 The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras. 1:6 And the sons of Gomer; Ashchenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah. 1:7 And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.

1:8 The sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, Put, and Canaan. 1:9 And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Havilah, and Sabta, and Raamah, and Sabtecha. And the sons of Raamah; Sheba, and Dedan. 1:10 And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be mighty upon the earth. 1:11 And Mizraim begat Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim, 1:12 And Pathrusim, and Casluhim, (of whom came the Philistines,) and Caphthorim. 1:13 And Canaan begat Zidon his firstborn, and Heth, 1:14 The Jebusite also, and the Amorite, and the Girgashite, 1:15 And the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite, 1:16 And the Arvadite, and the Zemarite, and the Hamathite.

1:17 The sons of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram, and Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Meshech. 1:18 And Arphaxad begat Shelah, and Shelah begat Eber. 1:19 And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of the one was Peleg; because in his days the earth was divided: and his brother's name was Joktan. 1:20 And Joktan begat Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah, 1:21 Hadoram also, and Uzal, and Diklah, 1:22 And Ebal, and Abimael, and Sheba, 1:23 And Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab. All these were the sons of Joktan. 1:24 Shem, Arphaxad, Shelah, 1:25 Eber, Peleg, Reu, 1:26 Serug, Nahor, Terah, 1:27 Abram; the same is Abraham." (Genesis 1:1-27 KJV)

All of "the seed of Abraham" populated the lands from the Nile River in Egypt to the Euphrates River in Iraq, while the Messianic line was assigned the land of Israel (see Abraham's Seed: From The Nile To The Euphrates).

"1:28 The sons of Abraham; Isaac, and Ishmael.

1:29 These are their generations: The firstborn of Ishmael, Nebaioth; then Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam, 1:30 Mishma, and Dumah, Massa, Hadad, and Tema, 1:31 Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah. These are the sons of Ishmael.

1:32 Now the sons of Keturah, Abraham's concubine: she bare Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah. And the sons of Jokshan; Sheba, and Dedan. 1:33 And the sons of Midian; Ephah, and Epher, and Henoch, and Abida, and Eldaah. All these are the sons of Keturah.

1:34 And Abraham begat Isaac. The sons of Isaac; Esau and Israel.

1:35 The sons of Esau; Eliphaz, Reuel, and Jeush, and Jaalam, and Korah. 1:36 The sons of Eliphaz; Teman, and Omar, Zephi, and Gatam, Kenaz, and Timna, and Amalek. 1:37 The sons of Reuel; Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah. 1:38 And the sons of Seir; Lotan, and Shobal, and Zibeon, and Anah, and Dishon, and Ezer, and Dishan. 1:39 And the sons of Lotan; Hori, and Homam: and Timna was Lotan's sister. 1:40 The sons of Shobal; Alian, and Manahath, and Ebal, Shephi, and Onam. And the sons of Zibeon; Aiah, and Anah. 1:41 The sons of Anah; Dishon. And the sons of Dishon; Amram, and Eshban, and Ithran, and Cheran. 1:42 The sons of Ezer; Bilhan, and Zavan, and Jakan. The sons of Dishan; Uz, and Aran.

1:43 Now these are the kings that reigned in the land of Edom before any king reigned over the children of Israel; Bela the son of Beor: and the name of his city was Dinhabah. 1:44 And when Bela was dead, Jobab the son of Zerah of Bozrah reigned in his stead. 1:45 And when Jobab was dead, Husham of the land of the Temanites reigned in his stead. 1:46 And when Husham was dead, Hadad the son of Bedad, which smote Midian in the field of Moab, reigned in his stead: and the name of his city was Avith. 1:47 And when Hadad was dead, Samlah of Masrekah reigned in his stead. 1:48 And when Samlah was dead, Shaul of Rehoboth by the river reigned in his stead. 1:49 And when Shaul was dead, Baalhanan the son of Achbor reigned in his stead. 1:50 And when Baalhanan was dead, Hadad reigned in his stead: and the name of his city was Pai; and his wife's name was Mehetabel, the daughter of Matred, the daughter of Mezahab. 1:51 Hadad died also. And the dukes of Edom were; duke Timnah, duke Aliah, duke Jetheth, 1:52 Duke Aholibamah, duke Elah, duke Pinon, 1:53 Duke Kenaz, duke Teman, duke Mibzar, 1:54 Duke Magdiel, duke Iram. These are the dukes of Edom." (1 Chronicles 1:28-54 KJV)
