Beriites

BERIITES (bē-rī'īts, Heb. berî‘îm). A people mentioned only once in the Bible (Num.26.44). They were descended from Beriah, who, in turn, was from the tribe of Asher (Gen.46.17).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

be-ri’-a, be-ri’-its (beri`ah, "in shouting," probably derived from a Hebrew root meaning "to make noise," or "in evil," from another Hebrew root):

(2) A son of Ephraim, called Beriah by his father because "it went evil with his house" (1Ch 7:23).

(3) A descendant of Benjamin (1Ch 8:13,16).
