3  And the sons of Bela were, Addar, and Gera, and Abi'hud,
4  and Abishu'a, and Na'aman, and Aho'ah,
5  and Gera, and Shephu'phan, and Huram.
6  And 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:
7  and Na'aman, and Ahi'ah, and Gera, he removed them, and begat Uzza, and Ahi'hud.
8  And Shaha-ra'im begat children in the country of Moab, after he had sent them away; Hushim and Ba'ara were his wives.
9  And he begat of Hodesh his wife, Jobab, and Zib'i-a, and Mesha, and Malcham,
10  and Je'uz, and Shachi'a, and Mirma. These were his sons, heads of the fathers.
11  And of Hushim he begat Abi'tub, and Elpa'al.
12  The sons of Elpa'al; Eber, and Misham, and Shamed, who built Ono, and Lod, with the towns thereof:
13  Beri'ah also, and Shema, who were heads of the fathers of the inhabitants of Aj'alon, who drove away the inhabitants of Gath:
14  and Ahi'o, Shashak, and Jer'emoth,
15  and Zebadi'ah, and Arad, and Ader,
16  and Michael, and Ispah, and Joha, the sons of Beri'ah;
17  and Zebadi'ah, and Meshul'lam, and Hez'eki, and Heber,
18  Ish'merai also, and Jezli'ah, and Jobab, the sons of Elpa'al;
19  and Jakim, and Zichri, and Zabdi,
20  and Eli-e'nai, and Zil'thai, and El'i-el,

25  and Iphedei'ah, and Penu'el, the sons of Shashak;
26  and Sham'sherai, and Shehari'ah, and Athali'ah,
27  and Jaresi'ah, and Eli'ah, and Zichri, the sons of Jero'ham.
28  These were heads of the fathers, by their generations, chief men. These dwelt in Jerusalem.
29  ¶ And at Gibeon dwelt the father of Gibeon; whose wife's name was Ma'achah:
30  and his firstborn son Abdon, and Zur, and Kish, and Ba'al, and Nadab,
31  and Gedor, and Ahi'o, and Zacher.
32  And Mikloth begat Shim'e-ah. And these also dwelt with their brethren in Jerusalem, over against them.
33  And Ner begat Kish, and Kish begat Saul, and Saul begat Jonathan, and Malchi–shu'a, and Abin'adab, and Esh–ba'al.
34  And the son of Jonathan was Merib–ba'al; and Merib–ba'al begat Micah.
35  And the sons of Micah were, Pithon, and Melech, and Tare'a, and Ahaz.
36  And Ahaz begat Jeho'adah; and Jeho'adah begat Al'emeth, and Azma'veth, and Zimri; and Zimri begat Moza;
37  and Moza begat Bin'e-a: Rapha was his son, Ele-a'sah his son, Azel his son.
38  And 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.
39  And the sons of Eshek his brother were, Ulam his firstborn, Jehush the second, and Eliph'elet the third.
40  And 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.
