Genealogy: Twelve Sons of Israel (Jacob)
2 These were the sons of Israel: Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Zebulun,2 Dan, Joseph, Benjamin, Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.
3 The sons of Judah were Er, Onan, and Shelah; these three were born to him by Bath-shua the Canaanitess. But Er, Judah’s firstborn, was evil in the sight of the Lord, so He put him to death.4 His daughter-in-law Tamar bore him Perez and Zerah. Judah had five sons in all.
