The sons of Simeon were Nemuel, and Jamin, Jarib, Zerah, (and) Saul;
Shallum was his son; Mibsam was his son; Mishma was his son.
The sons of Mishma; Hamuel, his son; and Zacchur, his son; [and] Shimei, his son.
The sons of Shimei were sixteen, and six daughters; soothly his brethren had not many sons, and all the kindred might not be even to the sum of the sons of Judah. (And Shimei had sixteen sons, and six daughters; but his brothers did not have many children, and so all the kindred of Simeon was not equal to the number of people in the tribe of Judah.)
And they dwelled in Beersheba (And they lived in Beersheba), and in Moladah, and in Hazarshual,
and in Bilhah, and in Ezem, and in Tolad,
and in Bethuel, and in Hormah, and in Ziklag,
and in Bethmarcaboth, and in Hazarsusim, and in Bethbirei, and in Shaaraim; these were the cities of them, unto the time of king David.
Also the towns of them were Etam, and Ain, and Rimmon, and Tochen, and Ashan; five cities.
And all the villages of them by the compass of these cities, till to Baal; this is the dwelling of them, and the parting of their cities. (And all their villages around these cities, unto Baal; these be their dwelling places, and the division of their cities.)
Also Meshobab, and Jamlech, and Joshah, the son of Amaziah,
and Joel, and Jehu, the son of Josibiah, and the sons of Seraiah, the sons of Asiel, (and Joel, and Jehu, the son of Josibiah, the son of Seraiah, the son of Asiel,)
and Elioenai, and Jaakobah, and Jeshohaiah, and Asaiah, and Adiel, and Jesimiel, and Benaiah;
and Ziza, the son of Shiphi, the son of Allon, the son of Jedaiah, the son of Shimri, the son of Shemaiah.
These be [the] princes named in their kindreds, and be multiplied greatly in the house of their allies. (These were the princes, or the leaders, named in their kindreds; and the house of their forefathers had greatly multiplied.)
And they went forth to enter into Gedor, unto the east of the valley, and to seek pastures to their sheep. (And they went forth unto the entrance of Gedor, east of the valley, to seek pastures for their sheep.)
And they found pastures full plenteous, and full good, and a full large land, and restful, and plenteous, wherein men of the generation of Ham had dwelled before. (And they found plentiful, and good pastures, and a very large, and restful, and plentiful land, where Ham's descendants had lived before.)
Therefore these men, which we have described before by name, came in the days of Hezekiah, king of Judah; and smote the tabernacles of them, and the dwellers that were found there; and they destroyed them unto this present day; and they dwelled for them, for they found there full plenteous pastures. (And so these men, whom we have described above by name, came in the days of Hezekiah, the king of Judah; and struck the tents, or the camps, of those who they found there, and also the Meunites, and no trace remaineth of them, unto this present day; and they lived in their place, for they found plentiful pastures there.)
Also five hundred men of the sons of Simeon went in to the hill of Seir, and they had (for) princes Pelatiah, and Neariah, and Rephaiah, and Uzziel, the sons of Ishi; (And five hundred men of the sons of Simeon went to the hill country of Seir, and they had for leaders Pelatiah, and Neariah, and Rephaiah, and Uzziel, the sons of Ishi;)
and they smote the remnants of Amalekites, that might escape; and they dwelled there for them unto this day. (and they struck down the remnants of the Amalekites, who had escaped; and they have lived there in their place unto this day.)
