New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
11 Across from the Reubenites in the land of Bashan lived the descendants of Gad, who were spread as far east as Salecah. 11 The Gadites lived next to them in Bashan, as far as Salecah:
12 Joel was the leader in the land of Bashan, and Shapham was second-in-command, along with Janai and Shaphat. 12 Joel was the chief, Shapham the second, then Janai and Shaphat, in Bashan.
13 Their relatives, the leaders of seven other clans, were Michael, Meshullam, Sheba, Jorai, Jacan, Zia, and Eber. 13 Their relatives, by families, were: Michael, Meshullam, Sheba, Jorai, Jacan, Zia and Eber--seven in all.
14 These were all descendants of Abihail son of Huri, son of Jaroah, son of Gilead, son of Michael, son of Jeshishai, son of Jahdo, son of Buz. 14 These were the sons of Abihail 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.
15 Ahi son of Abdiel, son of Guni, was the leader of their clans. 15 Ahi son of Abdiel, the son of Guni, was head of their family.
16 The Gadites lived in the land of Gilead, in Bashan and its villages, and throughout the Sharon Plain. 16 The Gadites lived in Gilead, in Bashan and its outlying villages, and on all the pasturelands of Sharon as far as they extended.
17 All of these were listed in the genealogical records during the days of King Jotham of Judah and King Jeroboam of Israel. 17 All these were entered in the genealogical records during the reigns of Jotham king of Judah and Jeroboam king of Israel.
18 There were 44,760 skilled warriors in the armies of Reuben, Gad, and the half-tribe of Manasseh. They were all skilled in combat and armed with shields, swords, and bows. 18 The Reubenites, the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh had 44,760 men ready for military service--able-bodied men who could handle shield and sword, who could use a bow, and who were trained for battle.
19 They waged war against the Hagrites, the Jeturites, the Naphishites, and the Nodabites. 19 They waged war against the Hagrites, Jetur, Naphish and Nodab.
20 They cried out to God during the battle, and he answered their prayer because they trusted in him. So the Hagrites and all their allies were defeated. 20 They were helped in fighting them, and God handed the Hagrites and all their allies over to them, because they cried out to him during the battle. He answered their prayers, because they trusted in him.
21 The plunder taken from the Hagrites included 50,000 camels, 250,000 sheep, 2,000 donkeys, and 100,000 captives. 21 They seized the livestock of the Hagrites--fifty thousand camels, two hundred fifty thousand sheep and two thousand donkeys. They also took one hundred thousand people captive,
22 Many of the Hagrites were killed in the battle because God was fighting against them. So they lived in their land until they were taken away into exile. 22 and many others fell slain, because the battle was God's. And they occupied the land until the exile.
