2 Samuel 2:9  (King James Version)
And made him king over Gilead, and over the Ashurites, and over Jezreel, and over Ephraim, and over Benjamin, and over all Israel.
 


Gilead
Numbers 32:1-42 ; Joshua 13:8-11 ; Psalms 108:8

Ashurites
The LXX. read [ ,] {Thasiri;} and the Vulgate {Gessuri,} "Geshurites;" but it is probable that for {ashuri,}
"Ashurites," we should read {ashairi,} "Asherites," or those
of the tribe of Asher. Genesis 30:13 ; Numbers 1:40

over Jezreel
Joshua 19:18
