MEONOTHAI (mē-ŏn'ō-thī, Heb. me‘ônōthay, my dwelling). A son of Othniel and the father of Ophrah (1Chr.4.13-1Chr.4.14). He was a descendant of Judah though Caleb.

MEONOTHAI mē ŏn’ ə thī (מְעוֹנֹתַ֖י). Son of Othniel, nephew of Caleb (1 Chron 4:13, 14).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

me-on’-o-thi, me-o’-no-thi, me-o-no’-thi (me`onothai, "my dwellings"): A son of Othniel, nephew of Caleb (1Ch 4:14). Possibly, as the King James Version margin suggests, and the Vulgate (Jerome’s Latin Bible, 390-405 A.D.) and Complutensian Septuagint say, 1Ch 4:13,14 should read "the sons of Othniel, Hathath and Meonothai; and Meonothai begat Ophrah," etc. The latter may be founder of the town of that name.
