1 Chronicles 5
As for the sons of Re`uben the first-born of Yisra`el - he was the first-born, but because he profaned his father`s bed, his birthright was given to the sons of Yoseph, son of Yisra`el, so that the genealogy is not listed according to the birthright,
for Yehudah prevailed over his brothers, and from him came a ruler, although the birthright was Yoseph's -
the sons of Re'uben the first-born of Yisra'el: Hanok and Pallu, Hetsron and Karmi.
The sons of Yo'el: Shemayah his son, Gog his son, Shim'i his son,
Mikah his son, Re'ayah his son, Ba'al his son,
and Be'erah his son, whom Tiglath-Pileser sovereign of Ashshur took into exile. He was leader of the Re'ubenites.
And his brothers by their clans, when the genealogy of their generations was registered: the chief, Ye'i'el, and Zekaryahu,
and Bela son of Azaz, son of Shema, son of Yo'el, who dwelt in Aro'er, as far as Nebo and Ba'al Me'on.
And he dwelt eastward as far as the entrance of the wilderness from the River Euphrates, because their livestock had increased in the land of Gil'ad.
And in the days of Sha'ul they fought against the Hagrites, who fell by their hand. And they dwelt in their tents over all the eastern part of Gil'ad.
And the children of Gad dwelt next to them in the land of Bashan as far as Salkah:
Yo'el was the chief, Shapham the next, then Ya'anai and Shaphat in Bashan;
and their brothers of their father's house: Mika'el, and Meshullam, and Sheba, and Yorai, and Yakan, and Ziya, and Eber, seven.
These were the children of Abihayil son of Huri, son of Yarowah, son of Gil'ad, son of Mika'el, son of Yeshishai, son of Yahdo, son of Buz;
Ahi son of Abdi'el, son of Guni, was chief of their father's house.
And they dwelt in Gil'ad, in Bashan and in its villages, and in all the open lands of Sharon within their borders.
All these were registered by genealogies in the days of Yotham sovereign of Yehudah, and in the days of Yarob'am sovereign of Yisra'el.
The sons of Re'uben, and the Gadites, and half the tribe of Menashsheh had forty-four thousand seven hundred and sixty brave men, men able to bear shield and sword, to shoot with the bow, and skilled in battle, going out to the army.
And they fought against the Hagrites, and Yetur, and Naphish, and Nodab.
And they were helped against them, and the Hagrites were given into their hand, and all who were with them. For they cried out to Elohim in the battle, and He answered their prayer, because they put their trust in Him.
And they took away their livestock: fifty thousand of their camels, and two hundred and fifty thousand of their sheep, and two thousand of their donkeys, also one hundred thousand of their men,
for many fell dead, because the battle was of Elohim. And they dwelt in their place until the exile.
The Half-Tribe of Manasseh...
And the children of the half-tribe of Menashsheh dwelt in the land. They increased from Bashan to Ba`al Hermon, that is, to Senir, or Mount Hermon.
And these were the heads of their fathers' houses: Epher, and Yishi, and Eli'el, and Azri'el, and Yirmeyah, Hodawyah, and Yahdi'el - mighty brave men, men of name, and heads of their fathers' houses.
But they trespassed against the Elohim of their fathers, and whored after the mighty ones of the peoples of the land, whom Elohim had destroyed before them.
So the Elohim of Yisra'el stirred up the spirit of Pul sovereign of Ashshur, even the spirit of Tiglath-Pileser sovereign of Ashshur. And he took the Re'ubenites, and the Gadites, and the half-tribe of Menashsheh into exile, and brought them to Halah, and Habor, and Hara, and the river of Gozan, unto this day.
