Bible Names H-M: Jesse


Jesse in Easton's Bible Dictionary firm, or a gift, a son of Obed, the son of Boaz and Ruth (Ruth 4:17, 22; Matt. 1:5, 6; Luke 3:32). He was the father of eight sons, the youngest of whom was David (1 Sam. 17:12). The phrase "stem of Jesse" is used for the family of David (Isa. 11:1), and "root of Jesse" for the Messiah (Isa. 11:10; Rev. 5:5). Jesse was a man apparently of wealth and position at Bethlehem (1 Sam. 17:17, 18, 20; Ps. 78:71). The last reference to him is of David's procuring for him an asylum with the king of Moab (1 Sam. 22:3).

Jesse in Smiths Bible Dictionary (wealthy), the father of David, was the son of Obed, who again was the fruit of the union of Boaz and the Moabitess Ruth. His great-grandmother was Rahab the Canaanite, of Jericho. Mt 1:5 Jesse's genealogy is twice given in full in the Old Testament, viz., Ru 4:18-22 and 1Chr 2:5-12 He is commonly designated as "Jesse the Bethlehemite," 1Sa 16:1,18; 17:58 but his full title is "the Ephrathite of Bethlehem Judah." ch. 1Sa 17:12 He is an "old man" when we first meet with him, 1Sa 17:12 with eight sons, ch. 1Sa 16:10; 17:12 residing at Bethlehem. ch 1Sa 16:4,5 Jesse's wealth seems to have consisted of a flock of sheep and goats, which were under the care of David. ch. 1Sa 16:11; 17:34,35 After David's rupture with Saul he took his father and his mother into the country of Moab and deposited them with the king, and there they disappear from our view in the records of Scripture. (B.C. 1068-61.) Who the wife of Jesse was we are not told.

Jesse in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE jes'-e (yishay, meaning doubtful; according to Gesenius it = "wealthy"; Olshausen, Gram., sections 277 f, conjectures yesh yah, "Yahweh exists"; Wellhausen (1 Sam 14:49) explains it as 'abhishay (see ABISHAI); Iessai; Ruth 4:17,22; 1 Sam 16; 17; 20; 22; 25:10; 2 Sam 20:1; 23:1; 1 Ki 12:16; 1 Ch 10:14; 12:18; Ps 72:20; Isa 11:1,10 ( = Rom 15:12)); Mt 1:5,6; Acts 13:22): Son of Obed, grandson of Boaz, and father of King David. The grouping of the references to Jesse in 1 Sam is bound up with that of the grouping of the whole narrative of David and Saul. See SAMUEL, BOOKS OF. There seem to be three main veins in the narrative, so far as Jesse is concerned. (1) In 1 Sam 16:1-13, where Jesse is called the Bethlehemite. Samuel is sent to seek among Jesse's sons successor to Saul. Both Samuel and Jesse fail to discern at first Yahweh's choice, Samuel thinking that it would be the eldest son (1 Sam 16:6), while Jesse had not thought it worth while to call the youngest to the feast (1 Sam 16:11)...

Jesse in Wikipedia Jesse, Eshai or Yishai, (Hebrew: יִשַׁי, Modern Yishay Tiberian Yīy, meaning "God exists" or "God's gift"; Arabic: يسي‎ Yessi; Greek: Ἰεσσαί Iessai; Latin: Isai, Jesse) is the father of the Biblical David, who became the king of the nation of Israel. His son David is sometimes called simply "Son of Jesse" (ben yishay). Jesse was the son of Obed and the grandson of Ruth. He was a Bethlehemite.[1] Jesse lived in Bethlehem, in Judah, and was a farmer and breeder of sheep. Jesse began to be used as an English given name after the Protestant Reformation.[2] Jesse is important in Judaism because he was the father of the most famous king of Israel, David. Jesse is important in Christianity, in part because he is mentioned in the genealogy of Jesus Christ...

Jesse Scripture - 1 Chronicles 12:18 Then the spirit came upon Amasai, [who was] chief of the captains, [and he said], Thine [are we], David, and on thy side, thou son of Jesse: peace, peace [be] unto thee, and peace [be] to thine helpers; for thy God helpeth thee. Then David received them, and made them captains of the band.

Jesse Scripture - 2 Chronicles 10:16 And when all Israel [saw] that the king would not hearken unto them, the people answered the king, saying, What portion have we in David? and [we have] none inheritance in the son of Jesse: every man to your tents, O Israel: [and] now, David, see to thine own house. So all Israel went to their tents.
