Jashubi Lehem

JASHUBI LEHEM (ja-shū'bī-lē'hĕm, Heb. yāshuvî-lehem). A word of doubtful meaning (1Chr.4.22). Either a place-name (niv, rsv) or the name of a man, a member of the tribe of Judah (asv, kjv, mlb, nasb).


JASHUBI-LEHEM jə shōō’ bī le’ hĕm (יָשֻׁ֣בִי לָ֑חֶם). A name of a man in Judah (1 Chron 4:22 KJV, ASV). The text is clearly corrupt. The RSV has “and returned to Lehem,” but it is not certain that this is correct.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

A name in 1Ch 4:22 where commentators insert beth, between the two words and translate "(and) returned to Bethlehem."
