Now the sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel (for 1he was the firstborn, but because 2he defiled his father'sbed, 3his birthright was given to the sons of Joseph the son of Israel ; so that he is not enrolled in the genealogy according to the birthright.
24ThoughJudahprevailed over his brothers, and 5from him came the leader, yet the birthright belonged to Joseph ),
36the sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel were Hanoch and Pallu, Hezron and Carmi.
The sons of Joel were Shemaiah his son, Gog his son, 7Shimei his son,
5Micah his son, Reaiah his son, Baal his son,
6Beerah his son, whomaTilgath-pilneserking of Assyriacarriedaway into exile ; he was leader of the Reubenites.
His bkinsmen by their families, 8in the genealogy of their generations, were Jeiel the chief, then Zechariah8
and Bela the son of Azaz, the son of Shema, the son of Joel, wholived in 9Aroer, even to Nebo and Baal-meon.
To the east he settled as far as the entrance of the wilderness from the riverEuphrates, 10because their cattle had increased in the land of Gilead.
In the days of Saul11they madewar with the Hagrites, who fell by their hand, so that they coccupied their tentsthroughoutdall the landeast of Gilead.
Now the sons of Gadlivedopposite them in the land of 12Bashan as far as 13Salecah.
12Joel was the chief and Shapham the second, then Janai and Shaphat in Bashan.
Their ekinsmen of their fathers'households were Michael, Meshullam, Sheba, Jorai, Jacan, Zia and Eber, seven.
14These were the sons of Abihail, the son of Huri, the son of Jaroah, the son of Gilead, the son of Michael, the son of Jeshishai, the son of Jahdo, the son of Buz ;
15Ahi the son of Abdiel, the son of Guni, was head of their fathers'households.

17All of these were enrolled in the genealogies in the days of 15Jothamking of Judah and in the days of 16Jeroboamking of Israel.
The sons of Reuben and the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh, consisting of valiantmen, men who boreshield and sword and shot with bow and were skillful in battle, were 44,760 , who 17went to war.
They madewaragainst18the Hagrites, 19Jetur, Naphish and Nodab.
They were helpedagainst them, and the Hagrites and all who were with them were given into their hand ; for 20they cried out to God in the battle, and He answered their prayersbecause21they trusted in Him.
They tookaway their cattle : their 50,000camels, 250,000sheep, 2,000donkeys ; and 100,000gmen .
For manyfellslain, because22the war was of God. And 23they settled in their placeuntil the 24exile.
Now the sons of the half-tribe of Manassehlived in the land ; from Bashan to Baal-hermon and 25Senir and MountHermon they were numerous.
24These were the heads of their fathers'households, even Epher, Ishi, Eliel, Azriel, Jeremiah, Hodaviah and Jahdiel, mightymen of valor, famousmen, heads of their fathers'households.
But they 26actedtreacherously against the God of their fathers and 27played the harlot28after the gods of the peoples of the land, whomGod had destroyedbefore them.
So the God of Israelstirred up the spirit of 29Pul, king of Assyria, even the spirit of hTilgath-pilneserking of Assyria, and he 30carried them away into exile, namely the Reubenites, the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh, and brought them to Halah, Habor, Hara and to the river of Gozan, to thisday.
