MESHOBAB mĭ shō’ băb (מְשׁוֹבָ֣ב). A Simeonite prince who with his tribe settled upon new pasture lands near Gerar (1 Chron 4:34).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

A Simeonite (1Ch 4:34). This name heads the list of those who, for the sake of wider pasturelands, occupied a Hamitic settlement in the neighborhood of Gerar (Mount GEDOR (which see)), and a Maonite settlement in Edomite territory (1Ch 4:39-41). The latter event is dated in the days of Hezekiah (see Curtis, Chronicles, in the place cited.).
