Their families grew,H935H8034H5387H4940H1004H1H6555H7230 39and they traveled to the region of Gerar, in the east part of the valley, seeking pastureland for their flocks.H3212H3996H1446H4217H1516H1245H4829H6629 40They found lush pastures there, and the land was quiet and peaceful.

No trace of them remains today. They killed everyone who lived there and took the land for themselves, because they wanted its good pastureland for their flocks.H3789H8034H935H3117H3169H4428H3063H5221H168H4583H4672H2763H3117H3427H4829H6629 42Five hundred of these invaders from the tribe of Simeon went to Mount Seir, led by Pelatiah, Neariah, Rephaiah, and Uzziel - all sons of Ishi.H1121H8095H2568H3967H582H1980H2022H8165H7218H6410H5294H7509H5816H1121H3469 43They destroyed the few Amalekites who had survived, and they have lived there ever since.H5221H7611H6002H6413H3427H3117
