And their sister was Hazzelelponi. 4 And Penuel was the father of Gedor, and Ezer the father of Hushah. These were the sons of Hur, the eldest of Ephrathah (Ephrath), the father of Bethlehem. 5 Ashur the father of Tekoa had two wives, Helah and Naarah. 6 Naarah bore him Ahuzzam, Hepher, Temeni, and Haahashtari.

And God granted his request. 11 Chelub the brother of Shuhah was the father of Mehir, the father of Eshton. 12 Eshton was the father of Beth-rapha, Paseah, and Tehinnah the father of Ir-nahash.

The sons of Ishi: Zoheth and Ben-zoheth. 21 The sons of Shelah son of Judah: Er the father of Lecah, and Laadah the father of Mareshah, and the families of the house of the linen workers at Beth-ashbea, 22 And Jokim, the men of Cozeba, Joash, and Saraph, who ruled in Moab, and returned to . These are ancient matters. 23 These were the potters and those who dwelt among plantations and hedges at Netaim and Gederah; there they dwelt with the king for his work. 24 The sons of Simeon: Nemuel, Jamin, Jarib, Zerah, and Shaul; 25 Shallum was his son, Mibsam his son, Mishma his son. 26 The sons of Mishma: Hammuel his son, Zaccur his son, Shimei his son. 27 Shimei had sixteen sons and six daughters, but his brothers did not have many children; neither did all their family multiply like the children of Judah. 28 They dwelt at Beersheba, Moladah, Hazar-shual, 29 Bilhah, Ezem, Tolad, 30 Bethuel, Hormah, Ziklag, 31 Beth-marcaboth, Hazar-susim, Beth-biri, and at Shaaraim. These were their towns until the reign of David. 32 There were also Etam, Ain, Rimmon, Tochen, and Ashan--five towns-- 33 And all their villages that were round about these towns, as far as Baal. These were their settlements, and they had their genealogical record. 34 Meshobab, Jamlech, Joshah son of Amaziah, 35 Joel, Jehu son of Joshibiah, the son of Seraiah, the son of Asiel, 36 Also Elioenai, Jaakobah, Jeshohaiah, Asaiah, Adiel, Jesimiel, Benaiah, 37 Ziza son of Shiphi, the son of Allon, the son of Jedaiah, the son of Shimri, the son of Shemaiah. 38 These mentioned by name were princes in their families; and their fathers' houses increased greatly . 39 And they journeyed to the entrance of Gedor to the east side of the valley to seek pasture for their flocks. 40 And they found rich, good pasture, and the land was wide, quiet, and peaceful, because people of Ham had dwelt there of old . 41 And these registered by name came in the days of Hezekiah king of Judah and destroyed their tents and the Meunim who were found there and exterminated them to this day, and they settled in their stead, because there was pasture for their flocks. 42 And some of them from the sons of Simeon, 500 men, went to Mount Seir, having for their leaders Pelatiah, and Neariah, Rephaiah, and Uzziel, the sons of Ishi. 43 They destroyed the remnant of the Amalekites who had escaped, and they have dwelt there to this day.
