1 Chronicles 5

Genealogy from Reuben

Now the sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel (for a he was the firstborn, but because b he defiled his father’s bed c his birthright was given to the sons of Joseph the son of Israel; so that he is not enrolled in the genealogy according to the birthright. d Though Judah prevailed over his brothers, and e from him came the leader, yet the birthright belonged to Joseph), f the sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel were Hanoch and Pallu, Hezron and Carmi. The sons of Joel were Shemaiah his son, Gog his son g Shimei his son, Micah his son, Reaiah his son, Baal his son, Beerah his son, whom
In 2 Kin 15:29, Tiglath-pileser
Tilgath-pilneser king of Assyria carried away into exile; he was leader of the Reubenites.
His
Lit brothers
kinsmen by their families, j in the genealogy of their generations, were Jeiel the chief, then Zechariah
and Bela the son of Azaz, the son of Shema, the son of Joel, who lived in k Aroer, even to Nebo and Baal-meon. To the east he settled as far as the entrance of the wilderness from the river Euphrates l because their cattle had increased in the land of Gilead. 10 In the days of Saul m they made war with the Hagrites, who fell by their hand, so that they
Lit dwelt in

Lit all the face of the east
all the land east of Gilead.

11 Now the sons of Gad lived opposite them in the land of p Bashan as far as q Salecah. 12 Joel was the chief and Shapham the second, then Janai and Shaphat in Bashan. 13 Their
Lit brother
kinsmen of their fathers’ households were Michael, Meshullam, Sheba, Jorai, Jacan, Zia and Eber, seven.
14 These were the sons of Abihail, the son of Huri, the son of Jaroah, the son of Gilead, the son of Michael, the son of Jeshishai, the son of Jahdo, the son of Buz; 15 Ahi the son of Abdiel, the son of Guni, was head of their fathers’ households. 16 They lived in Gilead, in Bashan and in its towns, and in all the pasture lands of s Sharon, as far as their
Lit goings out
borders.
17 All of these were enrolled in the genealogies in the days of u Jotham king of Judah and in the days of v Jeroboam king of Israel.

18 The sons of Reuben and the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh, consisting of valiant men, men who bore shield and sword and shot with bow and were skillful in battle, were 44,760, who w went to war. 19 They made war against x the Hagrites y Jetur, Naphish and Nodab. 20 They were helped against them, and the Hagrites and all who were with them were given into their hand; for z they cried out to God in the battle, and He answered their prayers because aa they trusted in Him. 21 They took away their cattle: their 50,000 camels, 250,000 sheep, 2,000 donkeys; and 100,000

men.
22 For many fell slain, because ac the war was of God. And ad they settled in their place until the ae exile.

23 Now the sons of the half-tribe of Manasseh lived in the land; from Bashan to Baal-hermon and af Senir and Mount Hermon they were numerous. 24 These were the heads of their fathers’ households, even Epher, Ishi, Eliel, Azriel, Jeremiah, Hodaviah and Jahdiel, mighty men of valor, famous men, heads of their fathers’ households.

25 But they ag acted treacherously against the God of their fathers and ah played the harlot ai after the gods of the peoples of the land, whom God had destroyed before them. 26 So the God of Israel stirred up the spirit of aj Pul, king of Assyria, even the spirit of
