And the sons of Eliezer were Rehabiah the chief
The first and only begotten, as it follows:
and Eliezer had none other sons;
before nor after him:
but the sons of Rehabiah were very many;
or greatly multiplied; not, as the Targum says, above 600,000; the number of Israel, as the Jewish writers F13 fancy; which they gather from ( Exodus 1:7 ) ( 32:10 ) ( Numbers 11:21 ) , and that though Moses deprecated the multiplication of his seed, God fulfilled it.
