Shemaah

SHEMAAH (shē-mā'a, shemā‘âh, fame). A man of Gibeah of Benjamin whose two sons helped David at Ziklag (1Chr.12.3).


SHEMAAH shĭ mā’ ə (שְּׁמָעָ֣ה). A Gibeonite; the father of Ahiezer and Joash, who joined David’s proscribed forces at Ziklag (1 Chron 12:3).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

she-ma’-a, shem’-a-a (ha-shema`-ah; Codex Vaticanus Ama, Codex Alexandrinus Samaa, Lucian, Asma): A Benjamite, who was the father, according to the Massoretic Text, of Ahiezer and Joash; but according to the Septuagint huios = (ben) instead of (bene) of Joash alone (1Ch 12:3). The original text may have read ben yeho-shama` (compare hoshama`, of 1Ch 3:18); then a dittography of the following (h) caused the error (Curtis, ICC).
