1 Chronicles 23:14-17

Context
23:14 The descendants of Moses the man of God were considered Levites. 1 

23:15 The sons of Moses:

Gershom and Eliezer.

23:16 The son 2  of Gershom:

Shebuel 3  the oldest.

23:17 The son of Eliezer was 4  Rehabiah, the oldest. Eliezer had no other sons, but Rehabiah had many descendants.

1 tn Heb “and Moses the man of God, his sons were called to the tribe of Levi.”

2 tn The Hebrew text has the plural “sons,” but only one name appears after this. The attached phrase “the oldest” might indicate that Shebuel was not Gershom’s only son, but note v. 17.

3 tc The LXX reads Σουβαηλ (Soubahl) here, a reading followed by NAB, NIV, NCV, CEV (“Shubael”); cf. 24:20.

4 tn The Hebrew text has “the sons of Eliezer were,” but only one name appears after this in the verse, and we are specifically told that Eliezer had no other sons.
