The sons of Re'uven the firstborn of Yisra'el (for he was the firstborn; but, because he defiled his father's couch, his birthright was given to the sons of Yosef the son of Yisra'el; and the genealogy is not to be reckoned after the birthright.
For Yehudah prevailed above his brothers, and of him came the prince; but the birthright was Yosef's:)
the sons of Re'uven the firstborn of Yisra'el: Hanokh, and Pallu, Hetzron, and Karmi.
The sons of Yo'el: Shemayah his son, Gog his son, Shim`i his son,
Mikhah his son, Re'ayah his son, Ba`al his son,
Be'erah his son, whom Tilgat-Pilne'eser king of Ashshur carried away captive: he was prince of the Re'uveni.
His brothers by their families, when the genealogy of their generations was reckoned: the chief, Ye`i'el, and Zekharyah,
and Bela the son of Azaz, the son of Shema, the son of Yo'el, who lived in `Aro`er, even to Nevo and Ba`al-Me`on:
and eastward he lived even to the entrance of the wilderness from the river Perat, because their cattle were multiplied in the land of Gil`ad.
In the days of Sha'ul, they made war with the Hagrim, who fell by their hand; and they lived in their tents throughout all the [land] east of Gil`ad.
The sons of Gad lived over against them, in the land of Bashan to Salkhah:
Yo'el the chief, and Shafam the second, and Ya`nai, and Shafat in Bashan.
Their brothers of their fathers' houses: Mikha'el, and Meshullam, and Sheva, and Yorai, and Ya`kan, and Zia, and `Ever, seven.
These were the sons of Avichayil, the son of Huri, the son of Yao`ach, the son of Gil`ad, the son of Mikha'el, the son of Yeshishai, the son of Yachdo, the son of Buz;
Achi the son of `Avdi'el, the son of Guni, chief of their fathers' houses.
They lived in Gil`ad in Bashan, and in its towns, and in all the suburbs of Sharon, as far as their borders.
All these were reckoned by genealogies in the days of Yotam king of Yehudah, and in the days of Yarov`am king of Yisra'el.
The sons of Re'uven, and the Gadi, and the half-tribe of Menashsheh, of valiant men, men able to bear buckler and sword, and to shoot with bow, and skillful in war, were forty-four thousand seven hundred and sixty, that were able to go forth to war.
They made war with the Hagrim, with Yetur, and Nafish, and Nodav.
They were helped against them, and the Hagrim were delivered into their hand, and all who were with them; for they cried to God in the battle, and he was entreated of them, because they put their trust in him.
They took away their cattle; of their camels fifty thousand, and of sheep two hundred fifty thousand, and of donkeys two thousand, and of men one hundred thousand.
For there fell many slain, because the war was of God. They lived in their place until the captivity.
The children of the half-tribe of Menashsheh lived in the land: they increased from Bashan to Ba`al-Hermon and Senir and Mount Hermon.
These were the heads of their fathers' houses: even `Efer, and Yish`i, and Eli'el, and `Azri'el, and Yirmeyahu, and Hodavyah, and Yachdi'el, mighty men of valor, famous men, heads of their fathers' houses.
They trespassed against the God of their fathers, and played the prostitute after the gods of the peoples of the land, whom God destroyed before them.
The God of Yisra'el stirred up the spirit of Pul king of Ashshur, and the spirit of Tilgat-Pilne'eser king of Ashshur, and he carried them away, even the Re'uveni, and the Gadi, and the half-tribe of Menashsheh, and brought them to Halach, and Havor, and Hara, and to the river of Gozan, to this day.
