Salma

SALMA (săl'ma, Heb. salmā’, strength). A son of Caleb, son of Hur, and father of Bethlehem (1Chr.2.51, 1Chr.2.54).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

sal’-mon, (salmon, "investiture" (Ru 4:21), salmah, "clothing" (Ru 4:20), salma’ (1Ch 2:11,51,54); Salmon):

(1) The father of Boaz, the husband of Ruth, and thus the grandfather of Jesse, David’s father (Ru 4:20,21). He is mentioned in both the genealogies of Jesus (Mt 1:4,5; Lu 3:32). From Mt 1:5 we learn that he married Rahab, by whom he begat Boaz.

(2) In 1Ch 2:51 ff, we read of a Salma, "the father of Beth-lehem," a son of Caleb, the son of Hur. He is also said to be the father of "the Netophathites, Atroth-beth-joab, and half of the Manahathites, the Zorites," and several "families of scribes."
