Commentary:

including...
  There are only 32 names listed here, so Jacob must be included in the tally (Ibn Ezra on Genesis 46:23; Radak). According to others, the total of 33 is completed by Levi's daughter Yochebed (Numbers 26:59; Rashi; Bava Bathra 123a,b).

Gad's sons
  Numbers 26:15.

Tzifion
  In Numbers it is Tzefon.

Etzbon
  Azni in Numbers (Rashi ibid).

Arodi
  Arod in Numbers.
