37 and Ziza son of Shiphi, son of Allon, son of Jedaiah, son of Shimri, son of Shemaiah-
38 these mentioned by name were leaders in their families. Their ancestral houses increased greatly.
39 They went to the entrance of Gedor, to the east side of the valley to seek pasture for their flocks.
40 They found rich, good pasture, and the land was broad, peaceful, and quiet, for some Hamites had lived there previously.
41 These who were recorded by name came in the days of King Hezekiah of Judah, attacked the Hamites' tents and the Meunim who were found there, and set them apart for destruction, as they are today. Then they settled in their place because there was pasture for their flocks.
42 Now 500 men from these sons of Simeon went with Pelatiah, Neariah, Rephaiah, and Uzziel, the sons of Ishi, as their leaders to Mount Seir.
43 They struck down the remnant of the Amalekites who had escaped and still live there today.

1 Chronicles 5

1 [These were] the sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel. He was the firstborn, but his birthright was given to the sons of Joseph son of Israel, because Reuben defiled his father's bed. He is not listed in the genealogy according to birthright.
2 Although Judah became strong among his brothers and a ruler came from him, the birthright was given to Joseph.
3 The sons of Reuben, Israel's firstborn: Hanoch, Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi.
4 Joel's sons: his son Shemaiah, his son Gog, his son Shimei,
5 his son Micah, his son Reaiah, his son Baal,
6 and his son Beerah. Beerah was a leader of the Reubenites, and Tiglath-pileser king of Assyria took him into exile.
7 His relatives by their families as they are recorded in their genealogy: Jeiel the chief, Zechariah,
8 and Bela son of Azaz, son of Shema, son of Joel. They settled in Aroer as far as Nebo and Baal-meon.
9 They also settled in the east as far as the edge of the desert that extends to the Euphrates River, because their herds had increased in the land of Gilead.
10 During Saul's reign they waged war against the Hagrites, who were defeated by their power. And they lived in their tents throughout the region east of Gilead.
11 The sons of Gad lived next to them in the land of Bashan as far as Salecah:
12 Joel the chief, Shapham the second [in command], Janai, and Shaphat in Bashan.
13 Their relatives according to their ancestral houses: Michael, Meshullam, Sheba, Jorai, Jacan, Zia, and Eber-seven.
14 These were the sons of Abihail son of Huri, son of Jaroah, son of Gilead, son of Michael, son of Jeshishai, son of Jahdo, son of Buz.
15 Ahi son of Abdiel, son of Guni, was head of their ancestral houses.
16 They lived in Gilead, in Bashan and its towns, and throughout the pasturelands of Sharon.
17 All of them were registered in the genealogies during the reigns of Judah's King Jotham and Israel's King Jeroboam.
18 The sons of Reuben and Gad and half the tribe of Manasseh had 44,760 warriors who could serve in the army-men who carried shield and sword, drew the bow, and were trained for war.
19 They waged war against the Hagrites, Jetur, Naphish, and Nodab.
20 They received help against these enemies, and the Hagrites and all their allies were handed over to them, because they cried out to God in battle. He granted their request because they trusted in Him.
21 They captured the Hagrites' livestock-50,000 of their camels, 250,000 sheep, and 2,000 donkeys-as well as 100,000 people.
22 Many of the Hagrites were killed because it was God's battle. And they lived there in the Hagrites' place until the exile.
23 The sons of half the tribe of Manasseh settled in the land from Bashan to Baal-hermon (that is, Senir or Mount Hermon). They were numerous.
24 These were the heads of their ancestral houses: Epher, Ishi, Eliel, Azriel, Jeremiah, Hodaviah, and Jahdiel. They were brave warriors, famous men, and heads of their patriarchal families.
25 But they were unfaithful to the God of their ancestors. They prostituted themselves with the gods of the nations God had destroyed before them.
26 So the God of Israel put it into the mind of Pul (that is, Tiglath-pileser) king of Assyria to take the Reubenites, Gadites, and half the tribe of Manasseh into exile. He took them to Halah, Habor, Hara, and Gozan's river, [where they are] until today.

John 6:1-21

1 After this, Jesus crossed the Sea of Galilee (or Tiberias).
2 And a huge crowd was following Him because they saw the signs that He was performing on the sick.
3 So Jesus went up a mountain and sat down there with His disciples.
4 Now the Passover, a Jewish festival, was near.
5 Therefore, when Jesus looked up and noticed a huge crowd coming toward Him, He asked Philip, "Where will we buy bread so these people can eat?"
6 He asked this to test him, for He Himself knew what He was going to do.
7 Philip answered, "Two hundred denarii worth of bread wouldn't be enough for each of them to have a little."
8 One of His disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, said to Him,
9 "There's a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish-but what are they for so many?"
10 Then Jesus said, "Have the people sit down." There was plenty of grass in that place, so they sat down. The men numbered about 5,000.
11 Then Jesus took the loaves, and after giving thanks He distributed them to those who were seated-so also with the fish, as much as they wanted.
12 When they were full, He told His disciples, "Collect the leftovers so that nothing is wasted."
13 So they collected them and filled 12 baskets with the pieces from the five barley loaves that were left over by those who had eaten.
14 When the people saw the sign He had done, they said, "This really is the Prophet who was to come into the world!"
15 Therefore, when Jesus knew that they were about to come and take Him by force to make Him king, He withdrew again to the mountain by Himself.
16 When evening came, His disciples went down to the sea,
17 got into a boat, and started across the sea to Capernaum. Darkness had already set in, but Jesus had not yet come to them.
18 Then a high wind arose, and the sea began to churn.
19 After they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea. He was coming near the boat, and they were afraid.
20 But He said to them, "It is I. Don't be afraid!"
21 Then they were willing to take Him on board, and at once the boat was at the shore where they were heading.
