Genesis 10:27: the sixth son of Yaktan, his siblings were Almodad (אַלְמוֹדָד), Shaleph (שָׁלֶף - also rendered as Sheleph), Chatsar-mavet (חֲצַרְמָוֶת), Yarach (יָרַח- Jerah in most English versions), Hadoram (הֲדוֹרָם), Diklah (דִּקְלָה), Oval (עוֹבָל), Avi-Ma-El (אֲבִימָאֵל), Sheva (שְׁבָא), Ophir (אוֹפִר), Chavilah (חֲוִילָה) and Yovav (יוֹבָב), unusually thirteen, where normally we expect the constellatory twelve. The odd-man-out is Chatsarmavet - Yemenite Arabs.
