Reuel in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
roo'-el (re`u'el, "God is his friend"; the Septuagint
(1) In the genealogical system Reuel is both a son of Esau by
Basemath (Gen 36:4,10,13,17; 1 Ch 1:35,37) and the father of
the father-in-law of Moses, Hobab (Nu 10:29). In the account
of the marriage of Zipporah to Moses (Ex 2:16-21) Jethro seems
to be called Reuel (compare HOBAB). The various names of
Jethro perplexed the Talmudists, too; some held that his real
name was "Hobab," and that Reuel was his father. Reuel is
probably a clan name (Gray, "Nu," ICC), and Hobab is a member
of the clan ("son") of Reuel (Nu 10:29, the King James Version
(2) The father of Eliasaph, the prince of Gad (Nu 2:14),
called (by some copyist's mistake) "Deuel" in Nu 1:14;
7:42,47; 10:20. The Septuagint has uniformly Rhagouel.
(3) A Benjamite (1 Ch 9:8).
