1 Chronicles 8:1-40

8  And Benjamin begot Belaʽ his eldest, Ashbel the second, and Ahrah the third, 2  Nohah the fourth, and Rapha the fifth. 3  And Belaʽ had sons, Addar and Gera and Abihud 4  and Abishuaʽ and Naʽaman and Ahoah 5  and Gera and Shephuphan and Huram. 6*  And these are Ehud’s sons; these are heads of families of the inhabitants of Gebaʽ, but they deported them to Manahath, 7  and Naʽaman and Ahijah and Gera; he deported them; and he begot ʽUzza and Ahihud. 8  And Shaharaim begot in the Moabite countryside, from his sending them—his wives Hushim and Baʽara—away, he begot, 9  from his wife Hodesh, Jobab and Sibja and Mesha and Malcam 10  and Jeghus and Sacjah and Mirmah; these were his sons, heads of families. 11  And from Hushim he begot Abitub and Elpaʽal; 12  and Elpaʽal’s sons were ʽEber and Misheam and Shemed—he built Ono and Lod and its dependencies— 13  and Beriʽah and Shemaʽ; they were heads of families of the inhabitants of Aijalon; they drove the inhabitants of Gath into flight; 14*  and his brother Shashak and Jeremoth 15  and Zebadiah and ʽArad and ʽEder 16  and Micael and Ishpah and Joha, the sons of Beriʽah; 17  and Zebadiah and Meshullam and Hizki and Heber 18  and Ishmerai and Izliah and Jobab, the sons of Elpaʽal; 19  and Jakim and Zicri and Zabdi 20  and Eliʽenai and Sillethai and Eliel 21  and ʽAdajah and Beraiah and Shimrath, the sons of Shimei; 22  and Ishpan and ʽEber and Eliel 23  and ʽAbdon and Zicri and Hanan 24  and Hananiah and ʽElam and ʽAnathothijah 25  and Iphdejah and Peniel, the sons of Shashak; 26  and Shamsherai and Shehariah and ʽAthaliah 27  and Jaghareshiah and Elijah and Zicri, the sons of Jeroham. 28  These were heads of families line by line, headmen; these lived in Jerusalem. 29  And at Gibeon lived Jeʽiel the father of Gibeon, whose wife’s name was Maʽacah, 30  and his eldest son ʽAbdon and Sur and Kish and Baʽal and Ner and Nadab 31  and Gedor and Ahjo and Zeker 32  and Mikloth; and Mikloth begot Shimah, and they too lived fronting their brothers at Jerusalem with their brothers. 33  And Ner begot Kish, and Kish begot Saul, and Saul begot Jonathan and Malki-Shuaʽ and Abinadab and Eshbaal, 34  and Jonathan’s son was Meribaal, and Meribaal begot Micah; 35  and Micah’s sons were Pithon and Melec and Tareaʽ and Ahaz, 36  and Ahaz begot Jehoʽaddah, and Jehoʽaddah begot ʽAlemeth and ʽAzmaveth and Zimri, and Zimri begot Mosa, 37  and Mosa begot Binea; Raphah his son, Eleasah his son, Asel his son; 38  and Asel had six sons, and these are their names: ʽAzrikam, Bokeru, and Ishmaʽel and Sheʽariah and ʽObadiah and Hanan—all these were Asel’s sons; 39  and his brother ʽEsek’s sons were Ulam his eldest, Jeghush the second, and Eliphelet the third. 40  And Ulam’s sons were stalwart men, archers, with many sons and grandsons, a hundred and fifty of them. All these were Benjamin’s sons.
