- 1 Chronicles 4:17 Verses 17 & 18, as found in the original text, and presented above unchanged, are a confused rendering (as they also are in the KJV). A better ordering of these phrases would be: 17 And the sons of Ezra were Jether, and Mered, and Epher, and Jalon. And the children of Mered and Bithiah, the daughter of Pharaoh, whom Mered took for a wife; were Miriam, and Shammai, and Ishbah, the founder of Eshtemoa. 18 And Mered’s Jewish wife/And his wife from the tribe of Judah bare Jered the founder of Gedor, and Heber the founder of Soco, and Jekuthiel the founder of Zanoah.
