Manasseh's sons, born of his Aramean concubine, were Asriel and Makir the father of Gilead.
Makir got his wife from the Huppites and Shuppites. His sister's name was Maacah. Another son, Zelophehad, had only daughters.
Makir's wife Maacah bore a son whom she named Peresh; his brother's name was Sheresh and his sons were Ulam and Rakem.
Ulam's son was Bedan. This accounts for the sons of Gilead son of Makir, the son of Manasseh.
His sister Hammoleketh gave birth to Ishdod, Abiezer, and Mahlah.
The sons of Shemida were Ahian, Shechem, Likhi, and Aniam.
