1 Chronicles 23:7-11 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
7 Of the Gershonites were [d]Ladan and Shimei. 8 The sons of Ladan were Jehiel the first and Zetham and Joel, three. 9 The sons of Shimei were Shelomoth and Haziel and Haran, three. These were the heads of the fathers’ households of Ladan. 10 The sons of Shimei were Jahath, [e]Zina, Jeush and Beriah. These four were the sons of Shimei. 11 Jahath was the first and Zizah the second; but Jeush and Beriah did not have many sons, so they became a father’s household, one [f]class.

Does the biblical scripture impute Shimei's children( Shelomoth and Haziel and Haran ) as being part of the household of Ladan, Shimei's brother? Or Did the Old testament scribes make a mistaken as they were writing the sentences in order? To elaborate, was the scripture that states "These were the heads of the fathers’ households of Ladan" been part of 1 Chronicles 23:8?

  • There is more than one Shimei(1Chr 6:42-43).
