1 Chronicles 26:8

All these of the sons of Obededom
And grandsons: they and their sons and their brethren, able men for strength for the
service;
men of fortitude of mind and strength of body, as before observed: were sixty two of Obededom:
that sprung from him, which the Jews F19 account for in an extravagant manner, as the effect of miraculous births.
