Gad's Descendants

11 The sons of Gad lived next to them in the land of Bashan as far as Salecah: 12 Joel the chief, Shapham the second [in command], Janai, and Shaphat in Bashan.a 13 Their relatives according to their ancestral houses: Michael, Meshullam, Sheba, Jorai, Jacan, Zia, and Eber-seven. 14 These were the sons of Abihail son of Huri, son of Jaroah, son of Gilead, son of Michael, son of Jeshishai, son of Jahdo, son of Buz. 15 Ahi son of Abdiel, son of Guni, was head of their ancestral houses. 16 They lived in Gilead, in Bashan and its towns, and throughout the pasturelands of Sharon. 17 All of them were registered in the genealogies during the reigns of Judah's King Jotham and Israel's King Jeroboam. 18 The sons of Reuben and Gad and half the tribe of Manasseh had 44,760 warriors who could serve in the army-men who carried shield and sword, drew the bow, and were trained for war. 19 They waged war against the Hagrites, Jetur, Naphish, and Nodab. 20 They received help against these enemies,b and the Hagrites and all their allies were handed over to them, because they cried out to God in battle. He granted their request because they trusted in Him. 21 They captured the Hagrites' livestock-50,000 of their camels, 250,000 sheep, and 2,000 donkeys-as well as 100,000 people. 22 Many of the Hagrites were killed because it was God's battle. And they lived there in the Hagrites' place until the exile.
