4 The sons of Joel: Samaia his son, Gog his son, Semei his son,
5 Micha his son, Reia his son, Baal his son,

14 These were the sons of Abihail, the son of Hurl, the son of Jara, the son of Galaad, the son of Michael, the son of Jesisi, the son of Jeddo, the son of But.

19 They fought against the Agarites: but the Itureans, and Naphis, and Nodab,
