Chronicles, two books of the Bible which repeat in some degree the contents of the 2nd Book of Samuel and the Books of the Kings, though written from a different point of view, i.e. Levitical instead of Prophetical. They are considered to be of about 330 B.C., and the books of Ezra and Nehemiah are thought to be continuations of them. The Hebrew name for them is Events of Days, that of the Septuagint, Paraleipomena (things left out), and by Jerome they are called Chronicon.
