1 Chronicles 4

Line of Hur, Asher

1The sons of Judah were Perez, Hezron, Carmi, Hur and Shobal. Reaiah the son of Shobal [a]became the father of Jahath, and Jahath became the father of Ahumai and Lahad. These were the families of the Zorathites. These were the [b]sons of Etam: Jezreel, Ishma and Idbash; and the name of their sister was Hazzelelponi. Penuel was the father of Gedor, and Ezer the father of Hushah. These were the sons of Hur, the firstborn of Ephrathah, the father of Bethlehem. Ashhur, the father of Tekoa, had two wives, Helah and Naarah. Naarah bore him Ahuzzam, Hepher, Temeni and Haahashtari. These were the sons of Naarah. The sons of Helah were Zereth, [c]Izhar and Ethnan. Koz became the father of Anub and Zobebah, and the families of Aharhel the son of Harum. Jabez was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother named him Jabez saying, “Because I bore him with pain.” 10 Now Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, “Oh that You would bless me indeed and enlarge my border, and that Your hand might be with me, and that You would keep me from harm that it may not pain me!” And God granted him what he requested.

11 Chelub the brother of Shuhah became the father of Mehir, who was the father of Eshton. 12 Eshton became the father of Beth-rapha and Paseah, and Tehinnah the father of [d]Ir-nahash. These are the men of Recah.

13 Now the sons of Kenaz were Othniel and Seraiah. And the sons of Othniel were Hathath and Meonothai. 14 Meonothai became the father of Ophrah, and Seraiah became the father of Joab the father of [e]Ge-harashim, for they were craftsmen. 15 The sons of Caleb the son of Jephunneh were Iru, Elah and Naam; and the [f]son of Elah was [g]Kenaz. 16 The sons of Jehallelel were Ziph and Ziphah, Tiria and Asarel. 17 The [h]sons of Ezrah were Jether, Mered, Epher and Jalon. ([i]And these are the sons of Bithia the daughter of Pharaoh, whom Mered took) and she conceived and bore Miriam, Shammai and Ishbah the father of Eshtemoa. 18 His Jewish wife bore Jered the father of Gedor, and Heber the father of Soco, and Jekuthiel the father of Zanoah. 19 The sons of the wife of Hodiah, the sister of Naham, were the [j]fathers of Keilah the Garmite and Eshtemoa the Maacathite. 20 The sons of Shimon were Amnon and Rinnah, Benhanan and Tilon. And the sons of Ishi were Zoheth and Ben-zoheth. 21 The sons of Shelah the son of Judah were Er the father of Lecah and Laadah the father of Mareshah, and the families of the house of the linen workers at Beth-ashbea; 22 and Jokim, the men of Cozeba, Joash, Saraph, who ruled in Moab, and Jashubi-lehem. And the [k]records are ancient. 23 These were the potters and the inhabitants of Netaim and Gederah; they lived there with the king for his work.

Descendants of Simeon

24 The sons of Simeon were [l]Nemuel and Jamin, [m]Jarib, [n]Zerah, Shaul; 25 Shallum his son, Mibsam his son, Mishma his son. 26 The sons of Mishma were Hammuel his son, Zaccur his son, Shimei his son. 27 Now Shimei had sixteen sons and six daughters; but his brothers did not have many sons, nor did all their family multiply like the sons of Judah. 28 They lived at Beersheba, Moladah and Hazar-shual, 29 at Bilhah, Ezem, Tolad, 30 Bethuel, Hormah, Ziklag, 31 Beth-marcaboth, Hazar-susim, Beth-biri and Shaaraim. These were their cities until the reign of David. 32 Their villages were Etam, Ain, Rimmon, Tochen and Ashan, five cities; 33 and all their villages that were around the same cities as far as [o]Baal. These were their settlements, and they have their genealogy.

34 Meshobab and Jamlech and Joshah the son of Amaziah, 35 and Joel and Jehu the son of Joshibiah, the son of Seraiah, the son of Asiel, 36 and Elioenai, Jaakobah, Jeshohaiah, Asaiah, Adiel, Jesimiel, Benaiah, 37 Ziza the son of Shiphi, the son of Allon, the son of Jedaiah, the son of Shimri, the son of Shemaiah; 38 these mentioned by name were leaders in their families; and their fathers’ houses increased greatly. 39 They went to the entrance of Gedor, even to the east side of the valley, to seek pasture for their flocks. 40 They found rich and good pasture, and the land was broad and quiet and peaceful; for those who lived there formerly were Hamites. 41 These, recorded by name, came in the days of Hezekiah king of Judah, and [p]attacked their tents and the Meunites who were found there, and destroyed them utterly to this day, and lived in their place, because there was pasture there for their flocks. 42 From them, from the sons of Simeon, five hundred men went to Mount Seir, with Pelatiah, Neariah, Rephaiah and Uzziel, the sons of Ishi, as their leaders. 43 They [q]destroyed the remnant of the Amalekites who escaped, and have lived there to this day.

ヤベツは兄弟の中で最も重んじられていました。母が彼をヤベツ(「苦しみ」の意)と名づけたのは、出産の時にたいへんな苦しみを味わったからです。

10 ヤベツはイスラエルの神に祈りました。「どうか、私を大いに祝福し、私の働きを助けてください。私が行うすべてのことに御手を添えてください。すべての悪と災いからお守りください。」神はその願いをかなえてくださいました。

エシュトンの父メヒルの父となった、シュハの兄弟ケルブ。

エシュトンはベテ・ラファ、パセアハ、テヒナの父。

テヒナはイル・ナハシュの父。

13 ケナズの子はオテニエルとセラヤ。

21-22 ユダの子シェラの子孫は次のとおり。

レカの父エル、マレシャの父ラダ、ベテ・アシュベアで亜麻布業を営む氏族、ヨキム、コゼバの氏族、ヨアシュ。ラヘムに帰るまでモアブの支配者であったサラフ。これらの名は古くから記録にとどめられていました。

23 これらの氏族は陶芸、庭園、植林の技術にすぐれ、王のために働きました。

24 シメオンの子はネムエル、ヤミン、ヤリブ、ゼラフ、サウル。

25 サウルの子はシャルム、孫はミブサム、曾孫はミシュマ。

26 ミシュマの子の一人が、ザクルの父で、シムイの祖父に当たるハムエル。

27 シムイには十六人の息子と六人の娘がいました。ところが、シムイの兄弟たちには、ユダの普通の家族に比べて子どもが少なかったのです。

32-33 彼らの子孫は、エタム、アイン、リモン、トケン、アシャンおよびその周辺に住んでいました。中には、バアルのような遠方に住んでいた者もいます。これらのことは、系図に記録されています。

34-39 次に挙げるのは、家畜の群れを飼う牧場を捜し求めてゲドルの谷の東側まで旅をした、富める氏族の長です。

42 後日、このシメオン族から出た侵略者たちのうち五百人は、イシュイの子のペラテヤ、ネアルヤ、レファヤ、ウジエルたちを指導者として立てセイルの山地に向かいました。 43 彼らはそこで、アマレク人の残党を打ち、そこに住みついたのです。
