VII.

THE GREAT CLANS OF ISSACHAR, BENJAMIN, NAPTHALI, WEST MANASSEH, EPHRAIM, AND ASHER.

(1?5) The tribe of Issachar, its clans and their military strength.

(1) Now the sons of Issachar.--Heb., and to the sons--i.e., "and as for the sons of Issachar, Tola, Puah, &c., four were they." The Vatic, LXX., has the dative; the Alex, the nominative, which is perhaps a correction. The four names are given Genesis 46:13, where the second is Puwwah, the third lob; and Numbers 26:23, where also the second name is Puwwah, but the third I?sh-b (he returns). The Heb. text here is I?shib (he makes return); the Hebrew margin, adopted by the Authorised Version, is the same as the text of Numbers 26

(2-6) These verses supply names and facts not found elsewhere. We have here some of the results of the census of David (2 Samuel 24, and below, 1 Chronicles 21).

(2) Heads of their father's house--Rather, chiefs of their father-houses (septs or clans).

Of Tola.--Belonging to Tola, that is, to the great clan or sub-tribe so called.

In their generations.--According to their registers or birth-rolls. . . .

Verse 1. - The great tribes of Judah and Levi being now passed, as well as the minor ones of Simeon, Reuben, and Gad, we reach the sons of Issachar. Issachar was Jacob's fifth son by Leah (Genesis 35:23). In the list of Genesis 46:13 our Puah (פוּאָח) appears differently spelt as Phuvah (פֻוָּח), and Jashub is found as Job, which is corrected by the Samaritan Codex to Jashub, and this reading the Septuagint follows. In the other parallel passage (Numbers 26:23) the Phuvah form obtains, but the other names are the same as here. Tola. We read (Judges 10:1, 2) of another person of this name, who judged Israel twenty-three years, at Shamir, in Mount Ephraim, and who is called "the son of Puah, the son of Dodo, a man of Issachar." This is a good instance of how the use of the same names, though in different order, clung to a tribe or family through long periods.
