    Who was Jesse's seventh son?

    1 Samuel 16:10–11 (NIV) Jesse had seven of his sons pass before Samuel, but Samuel said to him, “The Lord has not chosen these.” So he asked Jesse, “Are these all the sons you have?” “There is still the youngest,” Jesse answered. “He is tending the sheep.” Samuel said, “Send for him; we will not sit down until he arrives.”

    1 Samuel 17:13b The firstborn was Eliab; the second, Abinadab; and the third, Shammah.

    1 Chronicles 2:13–15 Jesse was the father of Eliab his firstborn; the second son was Abinadab, the third Shimea, the fourth Nethanel, the fifth Raddai, the sixth Ozem and the seventh David.

    1 Samuel 17:12 Now David was the son of an Ephrathite named Jesse, who was from Bethlehem in Judah. Jesse had eight sons, and in Saul’s time he was very old.

    It seems clear to me that Jesse had 8 sons, 7 of which survived to adulthood and had posterity. :)
