The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 This is the complete family tree for all Israel, recorded in the Royal Annals of the Kings of Israel and Judah at the time they were exiled to Babylon because of their unbelieving and disobedient lives. 1 All Israel was listed in the genealogies recorded in the book of the kings of Israel. The people of Judah were taken captive to Babylon because of their unfaithfulness.
2 The first Israelites to return from exile to their homes and cities were the priests, the Levites, and the temple support staff. 2 Now the first to resettle on their own property in their own towns were some Israelites, priests, Levites and temple servants.
3 Returning to Jerusalem from the families of Judah, Benjamin, Ephraim, and Manasseh were the following: 3 Those from Judah, from Benjamin, and from Ephraim and Manasseh who lived in Jerusalem were:
4 Uthai son of Ammihud, the son of Omri, the son of Imri, the son of Bani, from the line of Perez son of Judah; 4 Uthai son of Ammihud, the son of Omri, the son of Imri, the son of Bani, a descendant of Perez son of Judah.
5 from the Shilonites were Asaiah the firstborn and his sons; 5 Of the Shilonites: Asaiah the firstborn and his sons.
6 from the family of Zerah there was Jeuel. There were 690 in the Judah group. 6 Of the Zerahites: Jeuel. The people from Judah numbered 690.
