1 Chronicles 4:39  (King James Version)
And they went to the entrance of Gedor, even unto the east side of the valley, to seek pasture for their flocks.
 


they went
This expedition of the Simeonites took place in the days of Hezekiah, and, as Calmet conjectures, near the time of the captivity of the ten tribes; when the remnant of Simeon would feel themselves obliged to retire more southward into Arabia Petra, for fear of the Jews, and to seek pasture for their flocks.
