(8) Bela.--His descent is traced, like that of Beerah. but through fewer names. This does not necessarily imply that Bela and Beerah were not contemporaries. Intermediate names are often omitted in genealogies. (See Joshua 7:18 : "Achan son of Carmi son of Zabdi son of Zerah," and 1Chronicles 5:24, "Achan son of Zerah," and the different lengths of the pedigrees of Heman, Asaph, and Ethan in 1Chronicles 6:33-47.) It is not likely that the Joel of 1Chronicles 5:8 is the same as the Joel of 1Chronicles 5:4, in spite of the further coincidence of Shema-Shemiah.

Who dwelt.--He was dwelling, that is, he and his clan. . . .
