1 Chronicles 2:21-23

Context

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.

1 sn This means “later” in relation to the births of the three sons (Jerahmeel, Ram and Caleb) mentioned in v. 9.

2 tn Heb “Hezron went to.”

3 tn Heb “he took,” referring to taking in marriage.

4 tn Or “Havvoth Jair” (NIV, NRSV). Some translations do not translate the phrase (“havvoth” = “the towns of”), but treat it as part of the place name.
