John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
1 Chronicles 8:1

Now Benjamin begat Bela his firstborn
See ( 1 Chronicles 7:6 ) . The genealogy of the tribe of Benjamin is reviewed, because it joined and kept close with Judah in the worship of God, went into captivity, and returned out of it with it; and this review is made chiefly for the sake of Saul, and his posterity, the first king of Israel, who was of it, and in whose posterity this genealogy ends:

Ashbel the second;
supposed to be the same with Jediael, ( 1 Chronicles 7:6 ) , see ( Genesis 46:21 )

and Aharah the third;
the same with Aher, ( 1 Chronicles 7:13 ) , and with Ahiram, ( Numbers 26:38 ) .
