1 Filii quoque Ruben primogeniti Israel: ipse quippe fuit primoge nitus eius, sed, cum violasset torum patris sui, data sunt primogenita eius filiis Ioseph filii Israel, ut non computaretur in primogenitum,
2 quia Iuda erat quidem fortissimus inter fratres suos et de stirpe eius principes germinati sunt, primogenita autem reputata sunt Ioseph.
3 Filii ergo Ruben primogeniti Israel: Henoch et Phallu, Hesron et Charmi.
4 Filii Ioel: Semeia filius eius, Gog filius eius, Semei filius eius,
5 Micha filius eius, Reaia filius eius, Baal filius eius,
6 Beera filius eius, quem captivum duxit Theglathphalasar rex Assyriorum, et fuit princeps in tribu Ruben.
7 Fratres autem eius in cognationibus eius, quando numerabantur in genealogiis suis, erant: caput Iehiel, deinde Zacharias;
8 porro Bela filius Azaz filii Samma filii Ioel, ipse habitavit in Aroer usque ad Nabo et Baalmeon.
9 Contra orientalem quoque plagam habitavit usque ad introitum eremi, quae est inde a flumine Euphrate; multum quippe gregum eorum numerus creverat in terra Galaad.
10 In diebus autem Saul proeliati sunt contra Agarenos et interfecerunt illos; habitaveruntque pro eis in tabernaculis eorum in omni plaga, quae respicit ad orientem Galaad.
11 Filii vero Gad e regione eorum habitaverunt in terra Basan usque Salcha:
12 Ioel in capite et Sapham secundus, porro Ianai et Saphat in Basan;
13 fratres vero eorum secundum familias suas: Michael et Mosollam et Seba et Iorai et Iachan et Zie et Heber, septem.
14 Hi filii Abihail filii Huri filii Iaroe filii Galaad filii Michael filii Iesesi filii Ieddo filii Buz.
15 Ahi filius Abdiel filii Guni princeps familiarum eorum.
16 Et habitaverunt in Galaad et in Basan et in viculis eius et in cunctis suburbanis Saron usque ad terminos.
17 Omnes hi numerati sunt in diebus Ioatham regis Iudae et in diebus Ieroboam regis Israel.
18 Filii Ruben et Gad et dimidiae tribus Manasse viri bellatores scuta portantes et gladios et tendentes arcum eruditique ad proelia, quadraginta quattuor milia et septingenti sexaginta procedentes ad pugnam;
19 dimicaverunt contra Agarenos et Ituraeos et Naphisaeos et Nodabaeos.
20 Et datum est eis auxilium, traditique sunt in manus eorum Agareni et universi, qui fuerant cum eis, quia Deum invocaverunt cum proeliarentur, et exaudivit eos, eo quod credidissent in eum.
21 Ceperuntque omnia, quae possederant, camelorum quinquaginta milia et ovium ducenta quinquaginta milia, asinos duo milia et animas hominum centum milia;
22 vulnerati autem multi corruerunt; fuit enim bellum Domini. Habitaveruntque pro eis usque ad transmigrationem.
23 Filii quoque dimidiae tribus Manasse possederunt terram a Basan usque Baalhermon et Sanir et montem Hermon; ingens quippe numerus erat.
24 Et hi fuerunt principes familiarum eorum: Epher et Iesi et Eliel et Azriel et Ieremia et Odovia et Iediel; viri bellatores fortissimi et nominati, duces in familiis suis.
25 Reliquerunt autem Deum patrum suorum et fornicati sunt post deos populorum terrae, quos abstulit Deus coram eis.
26 Et suscitavit Deus Israel spiritum Phul regis Assyriorum et spiritum Theglathphalasar regis Assur; et transtulit Ruben et Gad et dimidium tribus Manasse et adduxit eos in Hala et Habor et Ara et fluvium Gozan usque ad diem hanc.
27 Filii Levi: Gerson, Caath, Merari.
28 Filii Caath: Amram, Isaar, Hebron et Oziel.
29 Filii Amram: Aaron, Moyses et Maria. Filii Aaron: Nadab et Abiu, Eleazar et Ithamar.
30 Eleazar genuit Phinees, et Phinees genuit Abisue;
31 Abisue vero genuit Bocci, et Bocci genuit Ozi.
32 Ozi genuit Zaraiam, et Zaraias genuit Meraioth,
33 porro Meraioth genuit Amariam, et Amarias genuit Achitob;
34 Achitob genuit Sadoc, Sadoc genuit Achimaas,
35 Achimaas genuit Azariam, Azarias genuit Iohanan;
36 Iohanan genuit Azariam: ipse est qui sacerdotio functus est in domo, quam aedificavit Salomon in Ierusalem.
37 Genuit autem Azarias Amariam, et Amarias genuit Achitob,
38 Achitob genuit Sadoc, et Sadoc genuit Sellum;
39 Sellum genuit Helciam, et Helcias genuit Azariam.
40 Azarias genuit Saraiam, et Saraias genuit Iosedec;
41 porro Iosedec egressus est, quando transtulit Dominus Iudam et Ierusalem per manus Nabuchodonosor.
King James Version
1 Now the sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel, (for he was the firstborn; but, forasmuch as he defiled his father's bed, his birthright was given unto the sons of Joseph the son of Israel: and the genealogy is not to be reckoned after the birthright.
2 For Judah prevailed above his brethren, and of him came the chief ruler; but the birthright was Joseph's:)
3 The sons, I say, of Reuben the firstborn of Israel were, Hanoch, and Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi.
4 The sons of Joel; Shemaiah his son, Gog his son, Shimei his son,
5 Micah his son, Reaia his son, Baal his son,
6 Beerah his son, whom Tilgath-pilneser king of Assyria carried away captive: he was prince of the Reubenites.
7 And his brethren by their families, when the genealogy of their generations was reckoned, were the chief, Jeiel, and Zechariah,
8 And Bela the son of Azaz, the son of Shema, the son of Joel, who dwelt in Aroer, even unto Nebo and Baal-meon:
9 And eastward he inhabited unto the entering in of the wilderness from the river Euphrates: because their cattle were multiplied in the land of Gilead.
10 And in the days of Saul they made war with the Hagarites, who fell by their hand: and they dwelt in their tents throughout all the east land of Gilead.
11 ¶ And the children of Gad dwelt over against them, in the land of Bashan unto Salchah:
12 Joel the chief, and Shapham the next, and Jaanai, and Shaphat in Bashan.
13 And their brethren of the house of their fathers were, Michael, and Meshullam, and Sheba, and Jorai, and Jachan, and Zia, and Heber, seven.
14 These are the children of Abihail the son of Huri, the son of Jaroah, the son of Gilead, the son of Michael, the son of Jeshishai, the son of Jahdo, the son of Buz;
15 Ahi the son of Abdiel, the son of Guni, chief of the house of their fathers.
16 And they dwelt in Gilead in Bashan, and in her towns, and in all the suburbs of Sharon, upon their borders.
17 All these were reckoned by genealogies in the days of Jotham king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam king of Israel.
18 ¶ The sons of Reuben, and the Gadites, and half the tribe of Manasseh, of valiant men, men able to bear buckler and sword, and to shoot with bow, and skilful in war, were four and forty thousand seven hundred and threescore, that went out to the war.
19 And they made war with the Hagarites, with Jetur, and Nephish, and Nodab.
20 And they were helped against them, and the Hagarites were delivered into their hand, and all that were with them: for they cried to God in the battle, and he was intreated of them; because they put their trust in him.
21 And they took away their cattle; of their camels fifty thousand, and of sheep two hundred and fifty thousand, and of asses two thousand, and of men an hundred thousand.
22 For there fell down many slain, because the war was of God. And they dwelt in their steads until the captivity.
23 ¶ And the children of the half tribe of Manasseh dwelt in the land: they increased from Bashan unto Baal-hermon and Senir, and unto mount Hermon.
24 And these were the heads of the house of their fathers, even Epher, and Ishi, and Eliel, and Azriel, and Jeremiah, and Hodaviah, and Jahdiel, mighty men of valour, famous men, and heads of the house of their fathers.
25 ¶ And they transgressed against the God of their fathers, and went a whoring after the gods of the people of the land, whom God destroyed before them.
26 And the God of Israel stirred up the spirit of Pul king of Assyria, and the spirit of Tilgath-pilneser king of Assyria, and he carried them away, even the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasseh, and brought them unto Halah, and Habor, and Hara, and to the river Gozan, unto this day.
