Genesis 46:10

Genesis 46:10

And the sons of Simeon
Who was the second son of Jacob: Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin, and Zohar;
the first of these is called Nemuel, ( Numbers 26:12 ) ( 1 Chronicles 4:24 ) ; the third, Ohad, is omitted in the places referred to, he dying without children, as may be supposed, and so was not the head of any family; and the fourth, Jachin, is called Jarib, ( 1 Chronicles 4:24 ) ; and the fifth is called Zerah, in the above place, by a transposition of letters: and Shaul the son of a Canaanitish woman;
whom Simeon married, very probably after the death of his first wife, by whom he had the above five sons, or she was his concubine: many Jewish writers F21 say, this was Dinah, married to a Canaanite, but this is impossible: according to the Targum of Jonathan, this Shaul was Zimri, who did the work of the Canaanites at Shittim, ( Numbers 25:14 ) , which is not at all likely, the distance of time will not admit of it.
