This is a list of the Tribes of Israel.

Although there are always said to be twelve tribes, there are fourteen names. This is because there are two different lists, each of twelve, and four of these names each only appear in one of the two lists.

The simple list of the sons of Jacob, also known as Israel, includes Joseph and Levi. The traditional list of the twelve tribes, however, omits these two names and includes instead Joseph's two sons Ephraim and Manassah.
