A man shall eat well by the fruit of his mouth,
•••
He who guards his mouth preserves his life,
•••
Righteousness guards him whose way is blameless,
•••
By pride comes nothing but strife,
But with the well-advised is wisdom.
•••
Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
But when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.
•••
he who fears the commandment will be rewarded.
from Proverbs 13

The sons of Judah were…
•••
Jabez was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, “Because I bore him in pain.” And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested.
•••
The sons of Simeon were…
•••
these mentioned by name were leaders in their families, and their father’s house increased greatly.
So they went to the entrance of Gedor, as far as the east side of the valley, to seek pasture for their flocks. And they found rich, good pasture, and the land was broad, quiet, and peaceful; for some Hamites formerly lived there.
from 1Chronicles 4

the sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel—he was indeed the firstborn, but because he defiled his father’s bed, his birthright was given to the sons of Joseph, the son of Israel, so that the genealogy is not listed according to the birthright; yet Judah prevailed over his brothers, and from him came a ruler, although the birthright was Joseph’s
•••
the children of Gad dwelt next to them in the land of Bashan as far as Salcah:
•••
sons of Reuben, the Gadites, and half the tribe of Manasseh had forty-four thousand seven hundred and sixty valiant men, men able to bear shield and sword, to shoot with the bow, and skillful in war, who went to war.
•••
the Hagrites were delivered into their hand, and all who were with them, for they cried out to God in the battle. He heeded their prayer, because they put their trust in Him.
•••
the children of the half-tribe of Manasseh dwelt in the land…
•••
they were unfaithful to the God of their fathers, and played the harlot after the gods of the peoples of the land, whom God had destroyed before them.
from 1Chronicles 5

The sons of Levi were…
•••
these are the men whom David appointed over the service of song in the house of the Lord, after the ark came to rest. They were ministering with music before the dwelling place of the tabernacle of meeting, until Solomon had built the house of the Lord in Jerusalem, and they served in their office according to their order.
•••
Aaron and his sons offered sacrifices on the altar of burnt offering and on the altar of incense, for all the work of the Most Holy Place, and to make atonement for Israel, according to all that Moses the servant of God had commanded. Now these are the sons of Aaron…
from 1Chronicles 6
