The sons of Simeon: Namuel and Jamin, Jarib, Zara, Saul:
Sellum his son, Mapsam his son, Masma his son.
The sons of Masma: Hamuel his son, Zachur his son, Semei his son.
The sons of Semei were sixteen, and six daughters: but his brethren had not many sons, and the whole kindred could not reach to the sum of the children of Juda.
And they dwelt in Bersabee, and Molada, and Hasarsuhal,
And in Bala, and in Asom, and in Tholad,
And in Bathuel, and in Horma, and in Siceleg,
And in Bethmarchaboth, and in Hasarsusim, and in Bethberai, and in Saarim. These were their cities unto the reign of David.
Their towns also were Etam, and Aen, Remmon, and Thochen, and Asan, five cities.
And all their villages round about these cities as far as Baal. This was their habitation, and the distribution of their dwellings.
And Mosabab and Jemlech, and Josaphat, the son of Amasias,
And Joel, and Jehu the son of Josabia the son of Saraia, the son of Asiel,
And Elioenai, and Jacoba, and Isuhaia, and Asaia, and Adiel, and Ismiel, and Banaia,
Ziza also the son of Sephei the son of Allon the son of Idaia the son of Semri the son of Samaia.
These were named princes in their kindreds, and in the houses of their families were multiplied exceedingly.
And they went forth to enter into Gador as far as to the east side of the valley, to seek pastures for their flocks.
And they found fat pastures, and very good, and a country spacious, and quiet, and fruitful, in which some of the race of Cham had dwelt before.
And these whose names are written above, came in the days of Ezechias king of Juda: and they beat down their tents, and slew the inhabitants that were found there, and utterly destroyed them unto this day: and they dwelt in their place, because they found there fat pastures.
Some also of the children of Simeon, five hundred men, went into mount Seir, having for their captains Phaltias and Naaria and Raphaia and Oziel the sons of Jesi:
And they slew the remnant of the Amalecites, who had been able to escape, and they dwelt there in their stead unto this day.
