Descendants of Reuben

5The oldest son of Israel was Reuben. But since he dishonored his father by sleeping with one of his father's concubines, his birthright was given to the sons of his brother Joseph. For this reason, Reuben is not listed in the genealogical records as the firstborn son.H1121H7205H1060H3478H1060H2490H1H3326H1062H5414H1121H3130H1121H3478H3187H1062 2The descendants of Judah became the most powerful tribe and provided a ruler for the nation, but the birthright belonged to Joseph.H3063H1396H251H5057H1062H3130 3The sons of Reuben, the oldest son of Israel, were Hanoch, Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi.H1121H7205H1060H3478H2585H6396H2696H3756 4The descendants of Joel were Shemaiah, Gog, Shimei,H1121H3100H8098H1121H1463H1121H8096H1121 5Micah, Reaiah, Baal,H4318H1121H7211H1121H1168H1121 6and Beerah. Beerah was the leader of the Reubenites when they were taken into captivity by King Tiglath-pileser of Assyria.H880H1121H8407H4428H804H1540H5387H7206 7Beerah's relatives are listed in their genealogical records by their clans: Jeiel (the leader), Zechariah,H251H4940H3187H8435H3187H7218H3273H2148 8and Bela son of Azaz, son of Shema, son of Joel. The Reubenites lived in the area that stretches from Aroer to Nebo and Baal-meon.H1106H1121H5811H1121H8087H1121H3100H3427H6177H5015H1186 9And since they had so many livestock in the land of Gilead, they spread east toward the edge of the desert that stretches to the Euphrates River.H4217H3427H935H4057H5104H6578H4735H7235H776H1568 10During the reign of Saul, the Reubenites defeated the Hagrites in battle. Then they moved into the Hagrite settlements all along the eastern edge of Gilead.H3117H7586H6213H4421H1905H5307H3027H3427H168H6440H4217H1568

Descendants of Gad

11Next to the Reubenites, the descendants of Gad lived in the land of Bashan as far east as Salecah.H1121H1410H3427H776H1316H5548 12Joel was the leader in the land of Bashan, and Shapham was second-in-command, followed by Janai and Shaphat.H3100H7218H8223H4932H3285H8202H1316 13Their relatives, the leaders of seven other clans, were Michael, Meshullam, Sheba, Jorai, Jacan, Zia, and Eber.H251H1004H1H4317H4918H7652H3140H3275H2127H5677H7651 14These were all descendants of Abihail son of Huri, son of Jaroah, son of Gilead, son of Michael, son of Jeshishai, son of Jahdo, son of Buz.H1121H32H1121H2359H1121H3386H1121H1568H1121H4317H1121H3454H1121H3163H1121H938 15Ahi son of Abdiel, son of Guni, was the leader of their clans.H277H1121H5661H1121H1476H7218H1004H1 16The Gadites lived in the land of Gilead, in Bashan and its villages, and throughout all the pasturelands of Sharon.H3427H1568H1316H1323H4054H8289H8444 17All of these were listed in the genealogical records during the days of King Jotham of Judah and King Jeroboam of Israel.H3187H3117H3147H4428H3063H3117H3379H4428H3478

The Tribes East of the Jordan

18There were 44,760 capable warriors in the armies of Reuben, Gad, and the half-tribe of Manasseh. They were all skilled in combat and armed with shields, swords, and bows.H1121H7205H1425H2677H7626H4519H2428H582H5375H4043H2719H1869H7198H3925H4421H702H705H505H7651H3967H8346H3318H6635 19They waged war against the Hagrites, the Jeturites, the Naphishites, and the Nodabites.H6213H4421H1905H3195H5305H5114 20They cried out to God during the battle, and he answered their prayer because they trusted in him. So the Hagrites and all their allies were defeated.H5826H1905H5414H3027H2199H430H4421H6279H982 21The plunder taken from the Hagrites included 50,000 camels, 250,000 sheep and goats, 2,000 donkeys, and 100,000 captives.H7617H4735H1581H2572H505H6629H3967H2572H505H2543H505H120H5315H3967H505 22Many of the Hagrites were killed in the battle because God was fighting against them. The people of Reuben, Gad, and Manasseh lived in their land until they were taken into exile.H5307H7227H2491H4421H430H3427H1473 23The half-tribe of Manasseh was very large and spread through the land from Bashan to Baal-hermon, Senir, and Mount Hermon.H1121H2677H7626H4519H3427H776H7235H1316H1179H8149H2022H2768 24These were the leaders of their clans: Epher, Ishi, Eliel, Azriel, Jeremiah, Hodaviah, and Jahdiel. These men had a great reputation as mighty warriors and leaders of their clans.H7218H1004H1H6081H3469H447H5837H3414H1938H3164H1368H582H2428H8034H582H7218H1004H1 25But these tribes were unfaithful to the God of their ancestors. They worshiped the gods of the nations that God had destroyed.H4603H430H1H2181H310H430H5971H776H430H8045H6440 26So the God of Israel caused King Pul of Assyria (also known as Tiglath-pileser) to invade the land and take away the people of Reuben, Gad, and the half-tribe of Manasseh as captives. The Assyrians exiled them to Halah, Habor, Hara, and the Gozan River, where they remain to this day.H430H3478H5782H7307H6322H4428H804H7307H8407H4428H804H1540H7206H1425H2677H7626H4519H935H2477H2249H2024H5104H1470H3117
