Bible Names H-M: Machir


Machir in Easton's Bible Dictionary sold. (1.) Manasseh's oldest son (Josh. 17:1), or probably his only son (see 1 Chr. 7:14, 15; comp. Num. 26:29-33; Josh. 13:31). His descendants are referred to under the name of Machirites, being the offspring of Gilead (Num. 26:29). They settled in land taken from the Amorites (Num. 32:39, 40; Deut. 3:15) by a special enactment (Num. 36:1-3; Josh. 17:3, 4). He is once mentioned as the representative of the tribe of Manasseh east of Jordan (Judg. 5:14). (2.) A descendant of the preceding, residing at Lo- debar, where he maintained Jonathan's son Mephibosheth till he was taken under the care of David (2 Sam. 9:4), and where he afterwards gave shelter to David himself when he was a fugitive (17:27).

Machir in Fausset's Bible Dictionary 1. Manasseh's oldest son by a Syrian or Aramite concubine (1 Chronicles 7:14). Joseph had Machir's children upon his knees (Genesis 50:23), i.e. they were adopted by Joseph from their birth. Gilead was his son, and Abiah his daughter. A large part of the country E. of Jordan was subdued by his powerful family (Numbers 32:39; Deuteronomy 3:15). The rest of the family crossed Jordan. So powerful was the family that "Machir" supplants the name of "Manasseh" in Judges 5:14; Judges 5:17; Joshua 13:31-29. 2. Son of Ammiel of Lodebar, a Gileadite chief; sheltered Mephibosheth, Jonathan's lame son; afterward, influenced probably by David's kindness to the same youth, supplied David with necessaries when fleeing from Absalom (2 Samuel 9:4; 2 Samuel 17:27-29).

Machir in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE ma'-kir (makhir; Macheir), ma'-kir-it: (1) The eldest son of Manasseh (Gen 50:23). In Nu 26:29 it is recorded that Machir begat Gilead, but another narrative informs us that the children of Machir "went to Gilead, and took it, and dispossessed the Amorites that were therein. And Moses gave Gilead unto Machir the son of Manasseh; and he dwelt therein" (Nu 32:39,40; Josh 17:1,3; compare also 1 Ch 2:21,25; 7:14-17; Dt 3:15; Josh 13:31). In the song of Deborah, Machir is used as equivalent to Manasseh (Jdg 5:14). (2) Son of Ammiel, dwelling in Lo-debar (2 Sam 9:4,5), a wealthy landowner who protected Mephibosheth (Meribbaal), son of Jonathan, until assured of the friendly intentions of David (compare Ant, VII, ix, 8). Afterward, during the rebellion of Absalom, Machir with others came to David's assistance at Mahanaim, bringing supplies for the king and his men (2 Sam 17:27 ff). John A. Lees

Machir in Wikipedia Machir/Makir - meaning bartered - was the name of two figures in the Bible. 1. Machir, the son of Manasseh, and father of Gilead.[1] In the Torah's account of the journey of the Israelites after the Exodus, Machir (the individual) is portrayed as conquering the territories known as Gilead and Bashan, which had previously been occupied by Amorites[2][3]. Machir's descendants are described as having settled in Gilead and Bashan[4], and consequently is a key figure in Gilead's history. 2. According to the Books of Samuel, Machir son of Amiel was the name of a descendant of the Machir mentioned above, and resided at Lo-Debar. The text states that here he looked after Meribaal, the son of Jonathan, until David took over his care[5], and also looked after David himself, when David found himself a fugitive[6]
