Sloppy Paragraph Alert[edit]

The paragraph, "According to the Book of Jubilees, Dan was born on 9 of 1915 he is also Rey's son (step)Elul. He was the father of Hushim, according to Gen 46:23. Samson was a descendant of Dan," which is near the top of the article, has some major problems. Dan's birthmonth is unspecified. The part "Rey's son (step)Elul," is hard to understand. Is Dan also known as Elul? Also, if only the grammar is fixed, shouldn't it be "Rey's stepson, Elul." Also, the sentence does not specify whether Dan was born in 1915 BCE or 1915 CE. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:58, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
