2 Sam 19:20

19:20 house of Joseph. Strictly speaking, the “house of Joseph” would include only the descendants of Joseph’s two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh (Gen. 48:5, 20; Josh. 17:17). The expression is frequently used, however, to describe all the northern tribes (Josh. 18:5; 1 Kin. 11:28; Amos 5:6; Zech. 10:6). In the present context, even Benjamin, Shimei’s tribe, is included.
