Josheb-Basshebeth (יֹשֶׁב בַּשֶּׁבֶת, yoshev bashsheveth). One of David’s mighty men (2 Sam 23:8). In the corresponding list in 1 Chr 11:11, the name is Jashobeam, which may mean this Josheb-Basshebeth is the same as several other Jashobeams (see 1 Chr 12:6; 27:2–3).
JASHOBEAM (PERSON) [Heb yāšābĕʿām (יָשָׁבְעָם)]. Var. JOSHEB-BASSHEBETH. 1. One of David’s champions, a select class of warriors directly attached to the king for special assignments (1 Chr 11:10–47, v 11; = 2 Sam 23:8–39, v 8 in which the variant Josheb-Basshebeth occurs). Jashobeam is identified
JOSHEB-BASSHEBETH (PERSON) [Heb yōšeb baššebet (יֹשֶׁב בַּשֶּׁבֶת)]. Found only at 2 Sam 23:8, the name belongs to one of David’s mighty men. See DAVID’S CHAMPIONS. The name is unusual in form in the Hebrew onomasticon; the name Jashobeam at the corresponding point in 1 Chr 11:11 has led to explanation
Jashobeam. 1. Zabdiel’s son who was put in charge of David’s mighty men (1 Chr 11:11). He was also appointed chief of a division (24,000 soldiers) in the first month (1 Chr 27:2). He is the same person as the Tahchemonite “who sat in the seat” (2 Sm 23:8), which is often rendered as a name, Josheb-basshebeth.
Adino. Possibly another name for Joshebbasshebeth, one of the top three of David’s military heroes (2 Sm 23:8); also called Jashobeam (1 Chr 11:11). Since the Hebrew text is unclear, “Adino, the Eznite” may not be a proper name but a reference to the warrior’s spear (rsv, nasb).SeeJashobeam #1.
Jashobeamjə-shōʹbē-əm [Heb. yāšoḇʿām]. Jashobeam is mentioned in three passages (1 Ch. 11:11; 12:6 [MT 7]; 27:2f), but opinions vary about the number of persons referred to. In 1 Ch. 11:11 he is called “a Hachmonite” (reference unknown) and “chief of the three” (“three,” the best reading, RSV,
Adinoadʹə-nō, ə-dīʹnō [Heb. ‘aḏînô]; RSV and NEB omit. In the AV, the senior of David’s “mighty men.” “Josheb-basshebeth a Tachmonite, chief of the captains; the same was Adino the Eznite, against eight hundred slain at one time” (2 S. 23:8). This very exact rendering makes it evident even to
JASHOBEAM1. Zabdiel’s son who was put in charge of David’s “Three” mightiest men (1 Chr 11:11) and also appointed chief of a division (24,000 soldiers) on duty in the first month of the year (1 Chr 27:2). He is the same person as Josheb-basshebeth, the Tahkemonite (2 Sm 23:8, nlt mg). Jashobeam gained
Jashobeam (juh-shoh´bee-uhm; Heb., “the people will return”).1 The son of Zabdiel the Hachmonite. He was the commander of David’s elite group of warriors known as “the Thirty” (1 Chron. 11:11), a position apparently also held at one time by Abishai and Amasai (11:20; 12:18). Jashobeam is credited with
JASHOBEAM1. The son of Zabdiel the Hachmonite, chief of the 30 mighty men of David. He was renowned as a great warrior who had fought with his spear against 300 at one time and had slain them (1 Cor 11:11). He may also have been one of the three nameless heroes who broke through the enemy lines at Bethlehem
ADINO. The reference in 2 Sam 23:8 may not be the name of a person, and perhaps should be related to 1 Chr 11:11. One of the shades of meaning of the word Adino in Heb. is “slender,” which may suggest the spear used by these mighty warriors of David.
JOSHEB-BASSHEBETH. The name of David’s most eminent warrior among his mighty men as given in ASV and RSV as a probable substitute for the meaningless “that sat in the seat” in 2 Sam 23:8 of KJV. In the parallel passage in 1 Chr 11:11 this man is identified as “Jashobeam, an Hachmonite.” SeeJashobeam.
JASHOBEAM. 1. ‘… a Hachmonite, was chief of the three’, 1. Ch. 11:11; ‘son of Zabdiel’, 1 Ch. 27:2. He is to be identified with ‘Joshebbasshebeth, a Tah-chemonite’ (2 Sa. 23:8), which might be read ‘Josheb-bashebeth the Hachmonite’ (haḥaḵmōnî for taḥkemōnî, meaning unclear). lxxIebosthe, Iesebada,
Jashobeam (Heb. yāšoḇʿām)1. A Hachmonite; one of David’s elite class of warriors and the chief of the Three (1 Chr. 11:11). Jashobeam apparently killed 300 men with his own sword in battle. Josheb-basshebeth the Tahchemonite (2 Sam. 23:8), who killed 800 men with his own spear, may be the same person.
Adino (Heb. ʿăḏɩ̂nô)Older versions (e.g., KJV, NASB) have rendered 2 Sam. 23:8 as “Joshebasshebeth … he was called Adino the Eznite (ʿăḏɩ̂nô hāʿeṣɩ̂),” but most modern scholars and translations emend the text in light of 1 Chr. 11:11 to read “Joshebasshebeth … wielded his spear (yeʿddnô hāʿeṣnô).”
Adino [ădˊə nō] (Heb. ˓aḏînô). According to the KJV translation of the difficult Hebrew text of 2 Sam. 23:8, the captain of David’s mighty men, from Ezno or Ezni (LXX Adinon ho Asōnaios); he killed eight hundred people. The RSV and NIV reading is more plausible: “he raised his spear” (JB
Jasho´be-am (to whom the people turn), named first among the chief of the mighty men of David. 1 Chron. 11:11. (b.c. 1046.) He came to David at Ziklag. His distinguishing exploit was that he slew 300 (or 800, 2 Sam. 23:8) men at one time.
JASHO´BEAM (ja-shōʹbe-am; “let the people return”).1. A Hachmonite, one of David’s warriors, and the first named in the two lists given of them (2 Sam. 23:8, “Josheb-basshebeth a Tahchemonite”; “The Tachmonite,” KJV; 1 Chron. 11:11, “the son of a Hachmonite”). The former passage attributes to him the
AD´INO (adʹī-nō; “slender as a spear” [?]). The name given in 2 Sam. 23:8 (but lacking in the NIV) as one of David’s mighty men. Much difference of opinion respecting it exists. Some think the passage has been corrupted. It is clear that these words “Adino the Eznite” are not proper names, although
JOSHEB-BASSHE´BETH (jōʹsheb-bashʹe-beth; “sitting in the council”; “Josheb-bassheʹbeth,” KJV). The Tachemonite, the “chief of the captains” among David’s mighty men (2 Sam. 23:8). He is called Jashobeam (which see) in 1 Chron. 11:11.
