2:21 Later 1 Hezron had sexual relations with 2 the daughter of Makir, the father of Gilead. (He had married 3 her when he was sixty years old.) She bore him Segub. 2:22 Segub was the father of Jair, who owned twenty-three cities in the land of Gilead. 2:23 (Geshur and Aram captured the towns of Jair, 4 along with Kenath and its sixty surrounding towns.) All these were descendants of Makir, the father of Gilead.
