The sons of Manasseh; Ashriel, whom she bare
The wife of Manasseh, as distinguished from his concubine in the next clause; though the Targum reads, in connection with that,
``whom his Aramitess (or Syrian) concubine bare;''and then adds,
who also bare Machir the father of Gilead;
so that Ashriel and Machir were brethren; from which Ashriel sprung the family of the Ashrielites, ( Numbers 26:29 Numbers 26:31 ) as from Machir the Machirites, ( Numbers 26:29 Numbers 26:31 ) .
