23 So the children of the half-tribe of Manasseh dwelt in the land. Their numbers increased from Bashan to Baal Hermon, that is, to x Senir, or Mount Hermon. 24 These were the heads of their fathers' houses: Epher, Ishi, Eliel, Azriel, Jeremiah, Hodaviah, and Jahdiel. They were mighty men of valor, famous men, and heads of their fathers' houses. 25 And they were unfaithful to the God of their fathers, and y 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 z Pul king of Assyria, that is, a TiglathPile'ser 1 king of Assyria. He carried the Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh into captivity. He took them to b Halah, Habor, Hara, and the river of Gozan to this day.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
