Shammai (son of Mered)
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
A son of Mered and Bithiah, Pharaoh’s daughter (1 Chr 4:17). The Hebrew text of 1 Chr 4:17–18 is out of sequence. Bithiah is not identified as the mother of Shammai until the end of 1 Chr 4:18, following the mention of Mered’s children by a second wife. The reference to Mered at the end of 1 Chr 4:18 is also the only clue that the next generation of Ezrah’s descendants listed in 1 Chr 4:17–18 are descendants through Mered.
