Treasury of Scripture

These mentioned by their names were princes in their families: and the house of their fathers increased greatly.

mentioned by their names.

1 Chronicles 5:24
And these were the heads of the house of their fathers, even Epher, and Ishi, and Eliel, and Azriel, and Jeremiah, and Hodaviah, and Jahdiel, mighty men of valour, famous men, and heads of the house of their fathers.

Genesis 6:4
There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.









(38) These mentioned by their names.--Literally, these who have come (forward) with names, that is, have been adduced by name.

Were princes in their families.--Ameers or chieftains in their clans.

And the house of their fathers increased.--And their father-houses had spread greatly. Finding their territory too strait for them under these conditions, and probably also because of the encroachments of their powerful neighbours, the Judaeans and Philistines, the Simeonite chieftains went forth at the head of their clans to seek new settlements.

And (so) they went to the entrance of Gedor, even unto the east side of the valley.--Gedor can hardly be the town of that name in the hill country of Judah (Joshua 15:58). The LXX. read Gerar (??????).

Even unto the east side of the valley.--So far as to the east of the valley, that is, apparently, the valley of or near the unknown Gedor, or Gerar. The only considerable valley south-east of Judah is the Arabah, below the Dead Sea. That this locality is meant appears likely from the vicinity of Mount Seir and the Amalekites (1Chronicles 4:42).

To seek pasture for their flocks.--This statement is of interest as proving that even so late as the reign of Hezekiah, those Israelite clans which bordered on the desert were still nomades, like the Beidawis. (Comp. Genesis 13:5-12).
