1 Chronicles 5

1  Now the sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel, (for he was the firstborn; but, forasmuch as he defiled his father's bed, his birthright was given unto the sons of Joseph the son of Israel: and the genealogy is not to be reckoned after the birthright.

2  For Judah prevailed above his brethren, and of him came the chief ruler; but the birthright was Joseph's:)

3  The sons, I say, of Reuben the firstborn of Israel were, Hanoch, and Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi.

4  The sons of Joel; Shemaiah his son, Gog his son, Shimei his son,

5  Micah his son, Reaia his son, Baal his son,

6  Beerah his son, whom Tilgathpilneser king of Assyria carried away captive: he was prince of the Reubenites.

7  And his brethren by their families, when the genealogy of their generations was reckoned, were the chief, Jeiel, and Zechariah,

8  And Bela the son of Azaz, the son of Shema, the son of Joel, who dwelt in Aroer, even unto Nebo and Baalmeon:

9  And eastward he inhabited unto the entering in of the wilderness from the river Euphrates: because their cattle were multiplied in the land of Gilead.

10  And in the days of Saul they made war with the Hagarites, who fell by their hand: and they dwelt in their tents throughout all the east land of Gilead.
