This chapter is entirely dedicated to the descendants of Benjamin. These descendants have already been discussed in the previous chapter by the chronicler (1Chr 7:6-126[The sons of] Benjamin [were] three: Bela and Becher and Jediael.7The sons of Bela were five: Ezbon, Uzzi, Uzziel, Jerimoth and Iri. They [were] heads of fathers’ households, mighty men of valor, and were 22,034 enrolled by genealogy.8The sons of Becher [were] Zemirah, Joash, Eliezer, Elioenai, Omri, Jeremoth, Abijah, Anathoth and Alemeth. All these [were] the sons of Becher.9They were enrolled by genealogy, according to their generations, heads of their fathers’ households, 20,200 mighty men of valor.10The son of Jediael [was] Bilhan. And the sons of Bilhan [were] Jeush, Benjamin, Ehud, Chenaanah, Zethan, Tarshish and Ahishahar.11All these [were] sons of Jediael, according to the heads of their fathers’ households, 17,200 mighty men of valor, who were ready to go out with the army to war.12Shuppim and Huppim [were] the sons of Ir; Hushim [was] the son of Aher.). Here he does so more extensively, because he is working towards a special descendant, Saul, the predecessor of David. The ancestors and also the descendants of Saul are listed.
