JARAH jâr’ ə (יַעְרָ֔ה). A descendant of King Saul (1 Chron 9:42); called Jehoaddah in 1 Chronicles 8:36 (KJV Jehoadah).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

(ya`rah, "honey-comb" (?)): A descendant of King Saul (1Ch 9:42); but the Septuagint’s Codices Vaticanus and Alexandrinus, have Iada = ya`dah, a name found in Septuagint of 1Ch 8:36, where Massoretic Text has yeho`addah, Jehoaddah. Some Hebrew manuscripts have ya`dah in 9:42, and it should probably be accepted as the correct reading there, for ya`dah = Jehoaddah yeho`addah, linguistically; compare Jonathan and Jehonathan, etc.
