16 The Lord said to Samuel, “How long will you grieve over Saul, since I have rejected him from being king over Israel? Fill your horn with oil, and go. I will send you to Jesse the Bethlehemite, for I have provided for myself a king among his sons.”
2 These are the sons of Israel: Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Zebulun,2 Dan, Joseph, Benjamin, Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.3 The sons of Judah: Er, Onan and Shelah; these three Bath-shua the Canaanite bore to him. Now Er, Judah's firstborn, was evil in the sight of the Lord, and he put him to death.4 His daughter-in-law Tamar also bore him Perez and Zerah. Judah had five sons in all.
5 The sons of Perez: Hezron and Hamul.6 The sons of Zerah: Zimri, Ethan, Heman, Calcol, and Dara, five in all.7 The son[a] of Carmi: Achan, the troubler of Israel, who broke faith in the matter of the devoted thing;8 and Ethan's son was Azariah.
9 The sons of Hezron that were born to him: Jerahmeel, Ram, and Chelubai.10 Ram fathered Amminadab, and Amminadab fathered Nahshon, prince of the sons of Judah.11 Nahshon fathered Salmon,[b] Salmon fathered Boaz,12 Boaz fathered Obed, Obed fathered Jesse.13 Jesse fathered Eliab his firstborn, Abinadab the second, Shimea the third,14 Nethanel the fourth, Raddai the fifth,15 Ozem the sixth, David the seventh.
