Saul’s brother’s family (1 Chr 8:39-8:40)

“The sons of his brother Eshek were Ulam his firstborn, Jeush the second, and Eliphelet the third. The sons of Ulam were mighty warriors, archers, having many children and grandchildren, one hundred fifty. All these were Benjaminites.”

Saul had a brother named Eshek, who is only mentioned here. Eshek had 3 sons, Ulam, Jeush, and Eliphelet. Ulam was also the name of a descendent of Gideon. There were 5 people with the name of Jeush, while there were 6 with the name of Eliphelet. These were all mighty warriors, very good with bows and arrows.   They had over 150 children and grandchildren.
