Ozi’s son Izrahia was the father of Michael, Obadia, Johel and Jesia; from Ozi came all these five chieftains,
and under them were thirty-six thousand brave warriors, divided into families and clans, with many wives and children among them;
and their fellow tribesmen of Issachar counted eighty-seven thousand, all fighting men.
Benjamin had three sons, Bela, Bechor and Jadihel.✻

From Bechor came Zamira, Joas, Eliezer, Elioenai, Amri, Jerimoth, Abia, Anathoth and Almath. All these came from Bechor,
and their clans counted twenty thousand two hundred men, brave warriors all.
Jadihel had a son Balan, who was father of Jehus, Benjamin, Aod, Chanana, Zethan, Tharsis and Ahisahar.

Suthala, Ezer and Elad his sons were; but they went to Geth on a foray, and there were slain by the native folk.
Long did their father Ephraim mourn for them, till his brethren gathered round to comfort him;
so, at last, he bedded his wife again, and she, conceiving, bore him a son. This son he called Beria, as if he would say, At a time of misfortune for my race this one was born to me.
He had a daughter, too, called Sara, that founded Bethoron, Lower and Upper, and Ozensara as well.
Beria was the ancestor, through Rapha, Reseph, Thale, Thaan,
Laadan, Ammiud and Elisama
of Nun, the father of Josue.
The places they dwelt in were Bethel, and Noran to the east, Gazer, Sichem and Aza, with their dependent villages.
Next to them came the descendants of Manasses, dwelling at Bethsan, Thanach, Mageddo and Dor, with their dependent villages; all these, too, belonged to Israel’s son Joseph.
