 46:9
46:7 His sons and grandsons were with him. He also brought his daughters, his grand-daughters, and all his offspring to Egypt with him.
Banav uvney vanav ito benotav uvnot banav vechol-zar'o hevi ito Mitsraymah.
46:8 These are the names of the Israelites who came to Egypt:

Jacob and his sons.

Reuben was Jacob's first-born.
Ve'eleh shemot beney Yisra'el haba'im Mitsraymah Ya'akov uvanav bechor Ya'akov Re'uven.

46:9 Reuben's sons were Enoch (Chanokh), Palu, Chetzron and Carmi.
Uveney Re'uven Chanoch uFalu veChetsron veCharmi.



Commentary:

daughters
  See Genesis 37:35.

Israelites
  See Genesis 32:33. Here, beney Yisrael cannot mean 'children of Israel' in the literal sense, since Jacob is counted among them, as we shall see. See Targum.

Jacob and his sons
  Jacob is thus the first person counted. See note on Genesis 46:15.

Reuben's sons
  See Exodus 6:14, Numbers 26:5,6, 1 Chronicles 5:3.

Enoch
  The name was used for earlier people (Genesis 4:17, 5:18, 25:4).
