ESHEK (PERSON) [Heb ʿēšeq (עֵשֶׁק)]. A Benjaminite, a descendant of King Saul according to the genealogy in 1 Chr 8:39. The name Eshek is unique to this person and its etymology is unclear. (Rudolph [Chronicles HAT, 80]; Noth [IPN, 254] find the translations “oppression,” “a forced groan” unacceptable.)
