1 Chronicles 5
the sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel, (for he was the firstborn; but forasmuch as he defiled his father's bed, his birthright
was given unto the sons of Joseph the son of Israel: and the genealogy is not to be reckoned after the birthright.
2For Judah prevailed above his brethren, and of him came the chief ruler; but the
birthright was Joseph's:)
3The sons, I say,
of Reuben the firstborn of Israel were, Hanoch, and Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi.
4The sons of Joel; Shemaiah his son, Gog his son, Shimei his son,
5Micah his son, Reaia his son, Baal his son,
6Beerah his son, whom Tilgathpilneser king of Assyria carried away captive: he
was prince of the Reubenites.
7And his brethren
by their families, when the genealogy of their generations was reckoned, were the chief, Jeiel, and Zechariah,
8And Bela the son of Azaz, the son of Shema, the son of Joel, who dwelt in Aroer,
even unto Nebo and Baalmeon:
he inhabited unto the entering in of the wilderness from the river Euphrates: because their cattle were multiplied in the
land of Gilead.
10And in the days of Saul
they made war with the Hagarites, who fell by their hand: and they dwelt in their tents throughout all the east land of Gilead.
11And the children of Gad dwelt over against
them, in the land of Bashan unto Salcah:
the chief, and Shapham the next, and Jaanai, and Shaphat in Bashan.
13And their brethren of the house of their fathers were, Michael, and Meshullam, and Sheba, and Jorai,
and Jachan, and Zia, and Heber, seven.
are the children 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;
son of Abdiel, the son of Guni, chief of the house of their fathers.
16And they dwelt in Gilead in Bashan, and in her towns, and in all the suburbs of Sharon, upon their
17All these were reckoned by genealogies
in the days of Jotham king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam king of Israel.
18The sons of Reuben, and the Gadites, and half the tribe of Manasseh, of valiant men, men able to
bear buckler and sword, and to shoot with bow, and skilful in war, were four and forty thousand seven hundred and threescore,
that went out to the war.
19And they made
war with the Hagarites, with Jetur, and Nephish, and Nodab.
they were helped against them, and the Hagarites were delivered into their hand, and all that were with them: for they cried
to God in the battle, and he was intreated of them; because they put their trust in him.
21And they took away their cattle; of their camels fifty thousand, and of sheep
two hundred and fifty thousand, and of asses two thousand, and of men an hundred thousand.
22For there fell down many slain, because the war was of God. And they dwelt in
their steads until the captivity.
children of the half tribe of Manasseh dwelt in the land: they increased from Bashan unto Baalhermon and Senir, and unto mount
24And these were the heads of the
house of their fathers, even Epher, and Ishi, and Eliel, and Azriel, and Jeremiah, and Hodaviah, and Jahdiel, mighty men of
valour, famous men, and heads of the house of their fathers.
they transgressed against the God of their fathers, and went a whoring after the gods of the people of the land, whom God
destroyed before them.
26And the God of Israel
stirred up the spirit of Pul king of Assyria, and the spirit of Tilgathpilneser king of Assyria, and he carried them away,
even the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasseh, and brought them unto Halah, and Habor, and Hara, and
to the river Gozan, unto this day.
