Commentary:

Iyezer
  Aviezer in Joshua 17:2, Judges 6:11,24,34, 8:2,32; Septuagint. Also see 1 Chronicles 7:18, 2 Samuel 23:27.

Chelek
  See Joshua 17:2.

Asriel
  See Joshua 17:2, 1 Chronicles 7:14.

Shekhem
  See Joshua 17:2, 1 Chronicles 7:19. He may have been named after the city Shechem which was given to Joseph; Genesis 12:6, 48:22, Joshua 24:32. In Chronicles he is seen as a son of Shemida. Some, however, maintain that there were two different individuals with the name Shemida (Radak on Chronicles).

Shemida
  See Joshua 17:2, 1 Chronicles 7:19.

Chefer
  See Numbers, 27:1, Joshua 17:2,3, 1 Chronicles 11:36.
