And he brought the family of Judah
That is, the tribe of Judah, as Kimchi and Ben Melech interpret it, F26; or rather, the several families in that tribe, even the heads of them:
and he took the family of the Zarhites:
which descended from Zerah the son of Judah; that was taken by lot:
and he brought the family of the Zarhites man by man;
and cast lots on them:
and Zabdi was taken:
that part of the family of the Zarhites which sprung from Zabdi, a son of Zerah.
F26 So R. Sol. Ohel Moed, fol. 94. 2.
