Carmi’s son was ·Achan [or Achar; C “disaster”; Josh. 7:1], ·who caused trouble for [the troubler of] Israel because he ·took [stole] ·things [plunder] that had been ·given to the Lord to be destroyed [set apart/devoted to the Lord; Josh. 7:16–26].
Judah had Er, Onan, and Shelah; their mother was Bathshua the Canaanite. Er, Judah’s firstborn, was so bad before God that God killed him. Judah also had Perez and Zerah by his daughter-in-law Tamar—a total of five sons. Perez had Hezron and Hamul; Zerah had Zimri, Ethan, Heman, Calcol, and Darda—five sons. Carmi had Achar, who brought doom on Israel when he violated a holy ban. Ethan’s son was Azariah. And Hezron had Jerahmeel, Ram, and Chelubai.
The son of Karmi was Achar. He brought trouble on Israel. Some things that had been set apart to the Lord in a special way to be destroyed. He took some of those things. When he did that, he disobeyed the Lord’s command.
