Poole on 1 Chronicles 2:1, 2: The Sons of Israel

[1752 BC, etc.] Verse 1:[1] These are the sons of Israel (or, Jacob); (Gen. 29:32; 30:5; 35:18, 22; 46:8, etc.) Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah, Issachar, and Zebulun…

[The sons of Israel, etc.] He here appears to follow the order of age, although it does not appear to agree altogether with the order in Genesis 35:23, etc. (Mariana).

Verse 2:[2] Dan, Joseph, and Benjamin, Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.

[1] Hebrew: אֵ֖לֶּה בְּנֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֑ל רְאוּבֵ֤ן שִׁמְעוֹן֙ לֵוִ֣י וִיהוּדָ֔ה יִשָׂשכָ֖ר וּזְבֻלֽוּן׃ [2] Hebrew: דָּ֚ן יוֹסֵ֣ף וּבִנְיָמִ֔ן נַפְתָּלִ֖י גָּ֥ד וְאָשֵֽׁר׃
