1Now Benjamin begat Bela his firstborn, Ashbel the second, and Ahar´ah the third, 2Nohah the fourth, and Rapha the fifth. 3And the sons of Bela were, Addar, and Gera, and Abi´hud, 4and Abishu´a, and Na´aman, and Aho´ah, 5and Gera, and Shephu´phan, and Huram. 6And these are the sons of Ehud: these are the heads of the fathers of the inhabitants of Geba, and they removed them to Man´ahath: 7and Na´aman, and Ahi´ah, and Gera, he removed them, and begat Uzza, and Ahi´hud. 8And Shaha-ra´im begat children in the country of Moab, after he had sent them away; Hushim and Ba´ara were his wives. 9And he begat of Hodesh his wife, Jobab, and Zib´i-a, and Mesha, and Malcham, 10and Je´uz, and Shachi´a, and Mirma. These were his sons, heads of the fathers. 11And of Hushim he begat Abi´tub, and Elpa´al. 12The sons of Elpa´al; Eber, and Misham, and Shamed, who built Ono, and Lod, with the towns thereof: 13Beri´ah also, and Shema, who were heads of the fathers of the inhabitants of Aj´alon, who drove away the inhabitants of Gath: 14and Ahi´o, Shashak, and Jer´emoth, 15and Zebadi´ah, and Arad, and Ader, 16and Michael, and Ispah, and Joha, the sons of Beri´ah; 17and Zebadi´ah, and Meshul´lam, and Hez´eki, and Heber, 18Ish´merai also, and Jezli´ah, and Jobab, the sons of Elpa´al; 19and Jakim, and Zichri, and Zabdi, 20and Eli-e´nai, and Zil´thai, and El´i-el, 21and Adai´ah, and Berai´ah, and Shimrath, the sons of Shimhi; 22and Ishpan, and Heber, and El´i-el, 23and Abdon, and Zichri, and Hanan, 24and Hanani´ah, and Elam, and Antothi´jah, 25and Iphedei´ah, and Penu´el, the sons of Shashak; 26and Sham´sherai, and Shehari´ah, and Athali´ah, 27and Jaresi´ah, and Eli´ah, and Zichri, the sons of Jero´ham. 28These were heads of the fathers, by their generations, chief men. These dwelt in Jerusalem.
29And at Gibeon dwelt the father of Gibeon; whose wife's name was Ma´achah: 30and his firstborn son Abdon, and Zur, and Kish, and Ba´al, and Nadab, 31and Gedor, and Ahi´o, and Zacher. 32And Mikloth begat Shim´e-ah. And these also dwelt with their brethren in Jerusalem, over against them. 33And Ner begat Kish, and Kish begat Saul, and Saul begat Jonathan, and Malchi–shu´a, and Abin´adab, and Esh–ba´al. 34And the son of Jonathan was Merib–ba´al; and Merib–ba´al begat Micah. 35And the sons of Micah were, Pithon, and Melech, and Tare´a, and Ahaz. 36And Ahaz begat Jeho´adah; and Jeho´adah begat Al´emeth, and Azma´veth, and Zimri; and Zimri begat Moza; 37and Moza begat Bin´e-a: Rapha was his son, Ele-a´sah his son, Azel his son. 38And Azel had six sons, whose names are these, Az´rikam, Bo´cheru, and Ish´ma-el, and She-ari´ah, and Obadi´ah, and Hanan. All these were the sons of Azel. 39And the sons of Eshek his brother were, Ulam his firstborn, Jehush the second, and Eliph´elet the third. 40And the sons of Ulam were mighty men of valor, archers, and had many sons, and sons' sons, a hundred and fifty. All these are of the sons of Benjamin.
