Bathshua

BATHSHUA (băth’shūa, Heb. bath-shûa‘, daughter of opulence, or daughter of Shua)

In Gen.38.2 (niv has “daughter of a Canaanite man named Shua”) and 1Chr.2.3, where the name indicates daughter of Shua, wife of Judah.In 1Chr.3.5 as the mother of Solomon in most Hebrew manuscripts, but this is probably a misreading of Bathsheba due to a scribal error. The LXX has Bathsheba, and this is followed by NIV.
