8:1-40 Genealogies. - Here is a larger list of Benjamin's tribe. We may suppose that many things in these genealogies, which to us seem difficult, abrupt, and perplexed, were plain and easy at that time, and fully answered the intention for which they were published. Many great and mighty nations then were in being upon earth, and many illustrious men, whose names are now wholly forgotten; while the names of multitudes of the Israel of God are here kept in everlasting remembrance. The memory of the just is blessed.And Moza begat Binea; Rapha was his son,.... Called Rephaiah, 1 Chronicles 9:43.

Elasah his son; whose name is Eleasah, 1 Chronicles 9:43.

Azel his son.
