II Samuel 12:15, 24
I Chronicles 3:5
The four sons listed in I Chronicles are not mentioned in their birth order. This is not unusual in the Bible; for instance, Noah’s sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, are never listed together in the order that they were born. 1 Solomon may have been mentioned last for emphasis since the readers would have already known his birth order. 2
