The sons of Ezrah: Jether, Mered, Epher and Jalon. One of Mered's wives gave birth to Miriam,1 Shammai and Ishbah the father of Eshtemoa.
(His Judean wife gave birth to Jered the father of Gedor, Heber the father of Soco, and Jekuthiel the father of Zanoah.2) These were the children of Pharaoh's daughter Bithiah, whom Mered had married.
The sons of Hodiah's wife, the sister of Naham: the father of Keilah3 the Garmite, and Eshtemoa the Maacathite.420
The sons of Shimon: Amnon, Rinnah, Ben-Hanan and Tilon. The descendants of Ishi: Zoheth and Ben-Zoheth.
The sons of Shelah5 son of Judah: Er the father of Lecah, Laadah the father of Mareshah and the clans of the linen workers at Beth Ashbea,
Jokim, the men of Cozeba, and Joash and Saraph, who ruled in Moab and Jashubi Lehem. (These records are from ancient times.)
They were the potters who lived at Netaim and Gederah; they stayed there and worked for the king.
The descendants of Simeon:6 Nemuel, Jamin, Jarib,7 Zerah and Shaul;
Shallum was Shaul's son, Mibsam his son and Mishma his son.
The descendants of Mishma: Hammuel his son, Zaccur his son and Shimei his son.
Shimei had sixteen sons and six daughters, but his brothers did not have many children; so their entire clan did not become as numerous as the people of Judah.
