Jabez in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE ja'-bez (ya`bets, "sorrow" ("height)): (1) Place: An unidentified town probably in the territory of Judah, occupied by scribes (1 Ch 2:55). For an ingenious reconstruction of the passage see EB, under the word (2) Person: The head of a family of Judah, noted for his "honorable" character, though "his mother bare him with sorrow" (1 Ch 4:9,10), ya`bets being interpreted as if it stood for ya`tsebh, "he causes pain." The same play upon words recurs in his prayer, "that it be not to my sorrow!" His request was granted, "and the sorrow implied by his ominous name was averted by prayer" (Dummelow, in the place cited.).

Jabez in Wikipedia In the I Book of Chronicles Jabez is a well-respected man (ancestor in the lineage of the kings' tribe of Judah) whose prayer to God for blessing was answered, see 1 Chronicles 4:9-10. Moreover the author paused in this long list to give Jabez a place of honour in the long list of Kings and lineage. This short passage of scripture came to the attention of millions of Christians following the publication of the book The Prayer of Jabez by Bruce Wilkinson, in which he encouraged Christians to pray the way Jabez did.[1] The name Jabez Hebrew (ya bes) for 'he makes sorrowful'[2] [3]His Mother stated 'I gave birth to him in pain'.[4] It is speculated that, because Jabez was named by his mother, that there was no father in his life. Therefore, such birth out of wedlock would have been the source of pain and shame in Hebrew culture of the time. Hence the name. Whatever the interpretation, the prayer of Jabez has served both as a puzzle and also as an inspiration and model for some Christians. Jabez quite probably overcame adverse circumstances of birth to achieve a place of honor in his ancient society.[original research?] Jabez is also mentioned in 1 Chronicles. 2:55, possibly as a place name.
