1  Binyamin begot Bela his first-born, Ashbel the second, Aharah the third,

6  These were the sons of Ehud—they were chiefs of clans of the inhabitants of Geba, and they were exiled to Manahath:

7  Naaman, Achiya, and Gera—he exiled them and begot Uzza and Ahihud.

8  And Shaharaim had sons in the country of Moab after he had sent away Hushim and Baara his wives.

ח  וְשַׁחֲרַיִם הוֹלִיד בִּשְׂדֵה מוֹאָב מִן־שִׁלְחוֹ אֹתָם חוּשִׁים וְאֶת־בַּעֲרָא נָשָׁיו׃

9  He had sons by Hodesh his wife: Jobab, Zibia, Mesha, Malcam,

13  and Beriah and Shema—they were chiefs of clans of the inhabitants of Aijalon, who put to flight the inhabitants of Gath;

יג  וּבְרִעָה וָשֶׁמַע הֵמָּה רָאשֵׁי הָאָבוֹת לְיוֹשְׁבֵי אַיָּלוֹן הֵמָּה הִבְרִיחוּ אֶת־יוֹשְׁבֵי גַת׃

AY-leh ra-SHAY a-VOT l’-to-l’-do-TAM ra-SHEEM AY-leh ya-sh’-VU vee-ru-sha-LA-im

כח  אֵלֶּה רָאשֵׁי אָבוֹת לְתֹלְדוֹתָם רָאשִׁים אֵלֶּה יָשְׁבוּ בִירוּשָׁלָ ִם׃

 8:28   These chiefs dwelt in Yerushalayim

These members of the tribe of Binyamin chose to live in Yerushalayim. As Radak states, this is not surprising since the territory of Binyamin includes part of Yerushalayim. However, it becomes more difficult to understand when we look at the archaeological record, which shows that the only part of Yerushalayim included in the tribe of Binyamin was the area of Har HaBayit. The rest of the city, including the houses, extended southwards into the territory of Yehuda. Nevertheless, these Benjaminites chose to live outside their tribal lands since Yerushalayim was so beloved to them.2 comments

33  Ner begot Keesh, Keesh begot Shaul, Shaul begot Yehonatan, Malchi-shua, Avinadav, and Eshbaal;
