JEATHERAI (jē-ăth'ē-rī). A Gershonite Levite, grandson of Iddo (1Chr.6.21).

JEATHERAI je ăth’ ə rī (יְאָתְרַ֥י). KJV JEATERAI, -ăt-. A Gershonite Levite, and an ancestor of Asaph (1 Chron 6:21). He is called Ethni in v. 41; the difference is prob. due to a scribal error.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

je-ath’-e-ri, jeat’-e-ri (Revised Version (British and American)), (the King James Version) (ye’atheray, meaning unknown): A descendant of Gershom, "son" of Levi (1Ch 6:21 (Hebrew 6)), and probably an ancestor of Asaph (so commentators); in 6:39-43 the corresponding name is "Ei." The difference in the Hebrew words is not great.
