[1-4: Melodious Sound]
1. A son of Hebron and father of Raham in the line of Judah’s descendants through Caleb.—1Ch 2:42-44.
3. Head of a Benjamite household that settled in Aijalon and one of those who chased away the inhabitants of Gath. (1Ch 8:12, 13) Probably the same as Shimei in 1 Chronicles 8:21, there identified as a father of nine sons.—1Ch 8:19-21.
4. One of the six who stood on Ezra’s right when he read the Law to the assembled people; probably a priest.—Ne 8:4.
5. A city within Judah’s southern territory (Jos 15:21, 26), perhaps the same as Simeon’s enclave city Sheba. (Jos 19:1, 2) Some suggest that it was the same as Jeshua and identify it with Tell es-Saʽweh (Tel Yeshuʽa), about 15 km (9.5 mi) ENE of Beer-sheba.
