Bible: 1 Chronicles 5:1-2

Reuben’s Descendants

5:1 The sons of Reuben, Israel’s firstborn

(Now he was the firstborn, but when he defiled his father’s bed, 1  his rights as firstborn were given to the sons of Joseph, Israel’s son. So Reuben is not listed as firstborn in the genealogical records. 2  5:2 Though Judah was the strongest among his brothers and a leader descended from him, 3  the right of the firstborn belonged to Joseph.)
