SEV Biblia, Chapter 35:22 Y acaeció, morando Israel en aquella tierra, que fue Rubén y durmió con Bilha la concubina de su padre; lo cual oyó Israel. Y fueron los hijos de Israel doce:
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Genesis 35:22 Verse 22. Reuben went and lay with Bilhah his father's concubine] Jonathan, in his Targum, says that Reuben only overthrew the bed of Bilhah, which was set up opposite to the bed of his mother Leah, and that this was reputed to him as if he had lain with her. The colouring given to the passage by the Targumist is, that Reuben was incensed, because he found Bilhah preferred after the death of Rachel to his own mother Leah; and therefore in his anger he overthrew her couch. The same sentiment is repeated by Jonathan, and glanced at by the Jerusalem Targum, Genesis xlix. 4. Could this view of the subject be proved to be correct, both piety and candour would rejoice.
And Israel heard it.] Not one word is added farther in the Hebrew text; but a break is left in the verse, opposite to which there is a Masoretic note, which simply states that there is a hiatus in the verse. This hiatus the Septuagint has thus supplied: kai ponhron efanh enantion auton, and it appeared evil in his sight.
Now the sons of Jacob were twelve] Called afterwards the twelve patriarchs, because they became heads or chiefs of numerous families or tribes, Acts vii. 8; and the people that descended from them are called the twelve tribes, Acts xxvi. 7; James i. 1. Twelve princes came from Ishmael, chap. xxv. 16, who were heads of families and tribes. And in reference to the twelve patriarchs, our Lord chose twelve apostles. Strictly speaking, there were thirteen tribes among the Hebrews, as Ephraim and Manasses were counted for tribes, chap. xlviii. 5, 6; but the Scripture in naming them, says Mr. Ainsworth, usually sets down but twelve, omitting the name now of one, then of another, as may in sundry places be observed, Deuteronomy 33.; Ezekiel 48.; Revelation 12., &c.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 21-29 - What a sore affliction Reuben's sin was, is shown, "and Israel hear it." No more is said, but that is enough. Reuben thought that his father would never hear of it; but those that promise themselve secrecy in sin, are generally disappointed. The age and death of Isaa are recorded, though he died not till after Joseph was sold into Egypt Isaac lived about forty years after he had made his will, chap. 27:2 We shall not die an hour the sooner, but much the better, for timel setting our hearts and houses in order. Particular notice is taken of the agreement of Esau and Jacob at their father's funeral, to show ho God had wonderfully changed Esau's mind. It is awful to behol relations, sometimes for a little of this world's goods, disputing ove the graves of their friends, while they are near going to the grav themselves __________________________________________________________________
