8:31Before the worship of the false god called Baal began in Israel, the word ‘Baal’ was an ordinary word for God. And people often used that word in the names of their children.

32 Mikloth became the father of Shimeah. They lived near their relatives in Jerusalem.

33 Ner became the father of Kish. Kish became the father of Saul. Saul became the father of Jonathan, Malki-Shua, Abinadab and Esh-Baal.

34 Jonathan's son was Merib-Baal. Merib-Baal became the father of Micah.

35 Micah's sons were: Pithon, Melech, Tarea and Ahaz.

36 Ahaz became the father of Jehoaddah. Jehoaddah became the father of Alemeth, Azmaveth and Zimri. Zimri became the father of Moza. 37 Moza became the father of Binea. Binea's son was Raphah. Raphah's son was Eleasah. Eleasah's son was Azel.

38 Azel had six sons: Azrikam, Bokeru, Ishmael, Sheariah, Obadiah and Hanan. That is the list of Azel's sons.

39 Azel's brother was Eshek. Eshek's sons were: Ulam, his firstborn son, then Jeush and then Eliphelet.

40 Ulam's sons were brave soldiers. They could shoot arrows very well. They had 150 sons and grandsons.

All those men were descendants of Benjamin.
