These were his sons, heads of fathers’ houses. 11and of Hushim he begot Abitub, and Elpaal.

12And the sons of Elpaal: Eber, and Misham, and Shemed, who built Ono, and Lod, with the towns thereof; 13and Beriah, and Shema, who were heads of fathers’ houses of the inhabitants of Aijalon, who put to flight the inhabitants of Gath. 14And Ahio, Shashak, and Jeremoth; 15and Zebadiah, and Arad, and Eder; 16and Michael, and Ishpah, and Joha, were the sons of Beriah. 17And Zebadiah, and Meshullam, and Hizki, and Heber; 18and Ishmerai, and Izliah, and Jobab, were the sons of Elpaal. 19And Jakim, and Zichri, and Zabdi; 20and Elienai, and Zillethai, and Eliel; 21and Adaiah, and Beraiah, and Shimrath, were the sons of Shimei. 22And Ishpan, and Ebed, and Eliel; 23and Abdon, and Zichri, and Hanan; 24and Hananiah, and Elam, and Anthothiah; 25and Iphdeiah, and Penuel, were the sons of Shashak. 26And Shamsherai, and Shehariah, and Athaliah; 27and Jaareshiah, and Elijah, and Zichri, were the sons of Jeroham. 28These were heads of fathers’ houses throughout their generations, chief men; these dwelt in Jerusalem.

29And in Gibeon there dwelt the father of Gibeon [, aJeiel], whose wife’s name was Maacah; 30and his first-born son Abdon, and Zur, and Kish, and Baal, and Nadab; 31and Gedor, and Ahio, and Zecher. 32And Mikloth begot Shimeah. And they also dwelt with their brethren in Jerusalem, over against their brethren.

33And Ner begot Kish; and Kish begot Saul; and Saul begot Jonathan, and Malchi-shua, and Abinadab, and Eshbaal. 34And the son of Jonathan was Merib-baal; and Merib-baal begot Micah. 35And the sons of Micah; Pithon, and Melech, and Taarea, and Ahaz. 36And Ahaz begot Jehoaddah; and Jehoaddah begot Alemeth, and Azmaveth, and Zimri; and Zimri begot Moza; 37and Moza begot Binea; Raphah was his son, Eleasah his son, Azel his son. 38And Azel had six sons, whose names are these: Azrikam, Bocru, and Ishmael, and Sheariah, and Obadiah, and Hanan. All these were the sons of Azel. 39And the sons of Eshek his brother: Ulam his firstborn, Jeush the second, and Eliphelet the third. 40And the sons of Ulam were mighty men of valour, archers; and had many sons, and sons’ sons, a hundred and fifty. All these were of the sons of Benjamin.
