Descendants of Judah

The sons of Judah: Perez, Hezron, Carmi, Hur, and Shobal. Re-a′iah the son of Shobal was the father of Jahath, and Jahath was the father of Ahu′mai and Lahad. These were the families of the Zor′athites. These were the sons[a] of Etam: Jezre′el, Ishma, and Idbash; and the name of their sister was Hazzelelpo′ni, and Penu′el was the father of Gedor, and Ezer the father of Hushah. These were the sons of Hur, the first-born of Eph′rathah, the father of Bethlehem. Ashhur, the father of Teko′a, had two wives, Helah and Na′arah; Na′arah bore him Ahuz′zam, Hepher, Te′meni, and Ha-ahash′tari. These were the sons of Na′arah. The sons of Helah: Zereth, Izhar, and Ethnan. Koz was the father of Anub, Zobe′bah, and the families of Ahar′hel the son of Harum. Jabez was more honorable than his brothers; and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, “Because I bore him in pain.” 10 Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, “Oh that thou wouldst bless me and enlarge my border, and that thy hand might be with me, and that thou wouldst keep me from harm so that it might not hurt me!” And God granted what he asked. 11 Chelub, the brother of Shuhah, was the father of Mehir, who was the father of Eshton. 12 Eshton was the father of Bethra′pha, Pase′ah, and Tehin′nah the father of Irna′hash. These are the men of Recah. 13 The sons of Kenaz: Oth′niel and Sera′iah; and the sons of Oth′niel: Hathath and Meo′nothai.[b] 14 Meo′nothai was the father of Ophrah; and Sera′iah was the father of Jo′ab the father of Ge-har′ashim,[c] so-called because they were craftsmen. 15 The sons of Caleb the son of Jephun′neh: Iru, Elah, and Na′am; and the sons of Elah: Kenaz. 16 The sons of Jehal′lelel: Ziph, Ziphah, Tir′i-a, and As′arel. 17 The sons of Ezrah: Jether, Mered, Epher, and Jalon. These are the sons of Bith′i-ah, the daughter of Pharaoh, whom Mered married;[d] and she conceived and bore[e] Miriam, Sham′mai, and Ishbah, the father of Eshtemo′a. 18 And his Jewish wife bore Jered the father of Gedor, Heber the father of Soco, and Jeku′thiel the father of Zano′ah. 19 The sons of the wife of Hodi′ah, the sister of Naham, were the fathers of Ke′ilah the Garmite and Eshtemo′a the Ma-ac′athite. 20 The sons of Shimon: Amnon, Rinnah, Ben-ha′nan, and Tilon. The sons of Ishi: Zoheth and Ben-zo′heth. 21 The sons of Shelah the son of Judah: Er the father of Lecah, La′adah the father of Mare′shah, and the families of the house of linen workers at Beth-ashbe′a; 22 and Jokim, and the men of Coze′ba, and Jo′ash, and Saraph, who ruled in Moab and returned to Lehem[f] (now the records[g] are ancient). 23 These were the potters and inhabitants of Neta′im and Gede′rah; they dwelt there with the king for his work.

Descendants of Simeon

24 The sons of Simeon: Nem′uel, Jamin, Jarib, Zerah, Sha′ul; 25 Shallum was his son, Mibsam his son, Mishma his son. 26 The sons of Mishma: Ham′mu-el his son, Zac′cur his son, Shim′e-i his son. 27 Shim′e-i had sixteen sons and six daughters; but his brothers had not many children, nor did all their family multiply like the men of Judah. 28 They dwelt in Beer-sheba, Mola′dah, Ha′zar-shu′al, 29 Bilhah, Ezem, Tolad, 30 Bethu′el, Hormah, Ziklag, 31 Beth-mar′caboth, Ha′zar-su′sim, Beth-biri, and Sha-ara′im. These were their cities until David reigned. 32 And their villages were Etam, A′in, Rimmon, Tochen, and Ashan, five cities, 33 along with all their villages which were round about these cities as far as Ba′al. These were their settlements, and they kept a genealogical record.

34 Mesho′bab, Jamlech, Joshah the son of Amazi′ah, 35 Jo′el, Jehu the son of Joshibi′ah, son of Sera′iah, son of As′i-el, 36 Eli-o-e′nai, Ja-ako′bah, Jeshohai′ah, Asa′iah, Ad′i-el, Jesim′i-el, Bena′iah, 37 Ziza the son of Shiphi, son of Allon, son of Jeda′iah, son of Shimri, son of Shemai′ah— 38 these mentioned by name were princes in their families, and their fathers’ houses increased greatly. 39 They journeyed to the entrance of Gedor, to the east side of the valley, to seek pasture for their flocks, 40 where they found rich, good pasture, and the land was very broad, quiet, and peaceful; for the former inhabitants there belonged to Ham. 41 These, registered by name, came in the days of Hezeki′ah, king of Judah, and destroyed their tents and the Me-u′nim who were found there, and exterminated them to this day, and settled in their place, because there was pasture there for their flocks. 42 And some of them, five hundred men of the Simeonites, went to Mount Se′ir, having as their leaders Pelati′ah, Neari′ah, Repha′iah, and Uz′ziel, the sons of Ishi; 43 and they destroyed the remnant of the Amal′ekites that had escaped, and they have dwelt there to this day.

Descendants of Reuben

The sons of Reuben the first-born of Israel (for he was the first-born; but because he polluted his father’s couch, his birthright was given to the sons of Joseph the son of Israel, so that he is not enrolled in the genealogy according to the birthright; though Judah became strong among his brothers and a prince was from him, yet the birthright belonged to Joseph), the sons of Reuben, the first-born of Israel: Hanoch, Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi. The sons of Jo′el: Shemai′ah his son, Gog his son, Shim′e-i his son, Micah his son, Re-a′iah his son, Ba′al his son, Be-er′ah his son, whom Til′gath-pilne′ser king of Assyria carried away into exile; he was a chieftain of the Reubenites. And his kinsmen by their families, when the genealogy of their generations was reckoned: the chief, Je-i′el, and Zechari′ah, and Bela the son of Azaz, son of Shema, son of Jo′el, who dwelt in Aro′er, as far as Nebo and Ba′al-me′on. He also dwelt to the east as far as the entrance of the desert this side of the Euphra′tes, because their cattle had multiplied in the land of Gilead. 10 And in the days of Saul they made war on the Hagrites, who fell by their hand; and they dwelt in their tents throughout all the region east of Gilead.

Descendants of Gad

11 The sons of Gad dwelt over against them in the land of Bashan as far as Sal′ecah: 12 Jo′el the chief, Shapham the second, Ja′nai, and Shaphat in Bashan. 13 And their kinsmen according to their fathers’ houses: Michael, Meshul′lam, Sheba, Jo′rai, Jacan, Zi′a, and Eber, seven. 14 These were the sons of Ab′ihail the son of Huri, son of Jaro′ah, son of Gilead, son of Michael, son of Jeshish′ai, son of Jahdo, son of Buz; 15 Ahi the son of Ab′di-el, son of Guni, was chief in their fathers’ houses; 16 and they dwelt in Gilead, in Bashan and in its towns, and in all the pasture lands of Sharon to their limits. 17 All of these were enrolled by genealogies in the days of Jotham king of Judah, and in the days of Jerobo′am king of Israel.

18 The Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manas′seh had valiant men, who carried shield and sword, and drew the bow, expert in war, forty-four thousand seven hundred and sixty, ready for service. 19 They made war upon the Hagrites, Jetur, Naphish, and Nodab; 20 and when they received help against them, the Hagrites and all who were with them were given into their hands, for they cried to God in the battle, and he granted their entreaty because they trusted in him. 21 They carried off their livestock: fifty thousand of their camels, two hundred and fifty thousand sheep, two thousand asses, and a hundred thousand men alive. 22 For many fell slain, because the war was of God. And they dwelt in their place until the exile.

The Half-Tribe of Manasseh

23 The members of the half-tribe of Manas′seh dwelt in the land; they were very numerous from Bashan to Ba′al-her′mon, Senir, and Mount Hermon. 24 These were the heads of their fathers’ houses: Epher,[h] Ishi, Eli′el, Az′riel, Jeremiah, Hodavi′ah, and Jah′di-el, mighty warriors, famous men, heads of their fathers’ houses. 25 But they transgressed against the God of their fathers, and played the harlot after the gods of the peoples of the land, whom God had destroyed before them. 26 So the God of Israel stirred up the spirit of Pul king of Assyria, the spirit of Til′gath-pilne′ser king of Assyria, and he carried them away, namely, the Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manas′seh, and brought them to Halah, Habor, Hara, and the river Gozan, to this day.

Descendants of Levi

[i] The sons of Levi: Gershom, Kohath, and Merar′i. The sons of Kohath: Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uz′ziel. The children of Amram: Aaron, Moses, and Miriam. The sons of Aaron: Nadab, Abi′hu, Elea′zar, and Ith′amar. Elea′zar was the father of Phin′ehas, Phin′ehas of Abishu′a, Abishu′a of Bukki, Bukki of Uzzi, Uzzi of Zerahi′ah, Zerahi′ah of Mera′ioth, Mera′ioth of Amari′ah, Amari′ah of Ahi′tub, Ahi′tub of Zadok, Zadok of Ahim′a-az, Ahim′a-az of Azari′ah, Azari′ah of Joha′nan, 10 and Joha′nan of Azari′ah (it was he who served as priest in the house that Solomon built in Jerusalem). 11 Azari′ah was the father of Amari′ah, Amari′ah of Ahi′tub, 12 Ahi′tub of Zadok, Zadok of Shallum, 13 Shallum of Hilki′ah, Hilki′ah of Azari′ah, 14 Azari′ah of Sera′iah, Sera′iah of Jeho′zadak; 15 and Jeho′zadak went into exile when the Lord sent Judah and Jerusalem into exile by the hand of Nebuchadnez′zar.

31 These are the men whom David put in charge of the service of song in the house of the Lord, after the ark rested there. 32 They ministered with song before the tabernacle of the tent of meeting, until Solomon had built the house of the Lord in Jerusalem; and they performed their service in due order. 33 These are the men who served and their sons.

49 But Aaron and his sons made offerings upon the altar of burnt offering and upon the altar of incense for all the work of the most holy place, and to make atonement for Israel, according to all that Moses the servant of God had commanded. 50 These are the sons of Aaron: Elea′zar his son, Phin′ehas his son, Abishu′a his son, 51 Bukki his son, Uzzi his son, Zerahi′ah his son, 52 Mera′ioth his son, Amari′ah his son, Ahi′tub his son, 53 Zadok his son, Ahim′a-az his son.

54 These are their dwelling places according to their settlements within their borders: to the sons of Aaron of the families of Ko′hathites, for theirs was the lot, 55 to them they gave Hebron in the land of Judah and its surrounding pasture lands, 56 but the fields of the city and its villages they gave to Caleb the son of Jephun′neh. 57 To the sons of Aaron they gave the cities of refuge: Hebron, Libnah with its pasture lands, Jattir, Eshtemo′a with its pasture lands, 58 Hilen with its pasture lands, Debir with its pasture lands, 59 Ashan with its pasture lands, and Beth-she′mesh with its pasture lands; 60 and from the tribe of Benjamin, Geba with its pasture lands, Al′emeth with its pasture lands, and An′athoth with its pasture lands. All their cities throughout their families were thirteen.

61 To the rest of the Ko′hathites were given by lot out of the family of the tribe, out of the half-tribe, the half of Manas′seh, ten cities. 62 To the Gershomites according to their families were allotted thirteen cities out of the tribes of Is′sachar, Asher, Naph′tali, and Manas′seh in Bashan. 63 To the Merar′ites according to their families were allotted twelve cities out of the tribes of Reuben, Gad, and Zeb′ulun. 64 So the people of Israel gave the Levites the cities with their pasture lands. 65 They also gave them by lot out of the tribes of Judah, Simeon, and Benjamin these cities which are mentioned by name.

John 21 Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (RSVCE)

Jesus Appears to Seven Disciples

21 [a]After this Jesus revealed himself again to the disciples by the Sea of Tibe′ri-as; and he revealed himself in this way. Simon Peter, Thomas called the Twin, Nathan′a-el of Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zeb′edee, and two others of his disciples were together. Simon Peter said to them, “I am going fishing.” They said to him, “We will go with you.” They went out and got into the boat; but that night they caught nothing.

Just as day was breaking, Jesus stood on the beach; yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to them, “Children, have you any fish?” They answered him, “No.” He said to them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.” So they cast it, and now they were not able to haul it in, for the quantity of fish. That disciple whom Jesus loved[b] said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his clothes, for he was stripped for work, and sprang into the sea. But the other disciples came in the boat, dragging the net full of fish, for they were not far from the land, but about a hundred yards[c] off.

When they got out on land, they saw a charcoal fire there, with fish lying on it, and bread. 10 Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish that you have just caught.” 11 So Simon Peter went aboard and hauled the net ashore, full of large fish, a hundred and fifty-three of them; and although there were so many, the net was not torn. 12 Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” Now none of the disciples dared ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord. 13 Jesus came and took the bread and gave it to them, and so with the fish. 14 This was now the third time that Jesus was revealed to the disciples after he was raised from the dead.

Jesus and Peter

15 When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.” 16 A second time he said to him, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Tend my sheep.” 17 He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” And he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep.[d] 18 Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were young, you girded yourself and walked where you would; but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will gird you and carry you where you do not wish to go.” 19 (This he said to show by what death he was to glorify God.) And after this he said to him, “Follow me.”

Jesus and the Beloved Disciple

20 Peter turned and saw following them the disciple whom Jesus loved, who had lain close to his breast at the supper and had said, “Lord, who is it that is going to betray you?” 21 When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, “Lord, what about this man?” 22 Jesus said to him, “If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you? Follow me!” 23 The saying spread abroad among the brethren that this disciple was not to die; yet Jesus did not say to him that he was not to die, but, “If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you?”

24 This is the disciple who is bearing witness to these things, and who has written these things; and we know that his testimony is true.

25 But there are also many other things which Jesus did; were every one of them to be written, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written.


  1. 21.1-25 This chapter was added later, either by the evangelist or by a disciple; cf. 20.3-31 and 21.24.
  2. 21.7 John remembered a similar miracle before; cf. Lk 5.6.
  3. John 21:8 Greek two hundred cubits
  4. 21.15-17 The threefold question addressed to Peter alone corresponds to the threefold denial. Jesus gives Peter charge over his flock.
