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 thirty fighting men (1Chr 11:11; 1Chr 27:2), a position apparently also held at one time by Abishai and Amasai (1Chr 11:20; 1Chr 12:18). 2 A Levite of the clan of Korah who joined David’s fighting men at Ziklag (1Chr 12:6); he may be the same as 1.
