Shilhi

SHILHI (shīl'hī, Heb. shilhî). The father-in-law of Jehoshaphat king of Judah (1Kgs.22.42).


SHILHI shĭl’ hī (שִׁלְחִֽי). The father of Azubah, the mother of Jehoshaphat (1 Kings 22:42; 2 Chron 20:31).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

Father of Jehoshaphat’s mother (1Ki 22:42 = 2Ch 20:31; Codex Vaticanus and Codex Alexandrinus in 2 Chronicles, Salei, Codex Vaticanus in 1 Kings, Semeei; Codex Alexandrinus in 1 Kings, Salala; Lucian in both, Seleei). Cheyne (Encyclopaedia Biblica, article "Shilhi") ventures the supposition that "Shilhi" is a misreading for "Shilhim" (Jos 15:32), and is therefore the name of place rather than that of a person; he holds it to be the name of the birthplace of Azubah, the king’s mother.
