Caleb the son of Hur - Hur was the son, not the father, of Caleb 1 Chronicles 2:19. The text should perhaps be read: “These (the list in 1 Chronicles 2:42-49) were the sons of Caleb. The sons of Hur, the first-born of Ephratah, were Shobal, etc.”

50. Sons of Caleb. Some believe there should be a period after “Caleb,” making this sentence belong with the preceding material, not with what follows. The statement would then bring to a close the list of Calebites mentioned in vs.42-49 in words corresponding to those closing the line of Jerahmeel in v.33.
The son of Hur. If a period was intended after “Caleb,” this statement should probably read “the sons of Hur,” in harmony with the LXX and the Vulgate. In that case a new beginning is here made of the sons of Hur, first-born son of Ephratah, wife of Caleb after the death of Azubah (v.19).
Shobal. In ch.4:1 the name Shobal occurs following that of Hur as the head of a subtribe of Judah.
Kirjath-jearim. One of the cities of the Gibeonites (Joshua 9:17).
