JETHER

je'-ther (yether, "abundance"):
(1) Ex 4:18 the Revised Version margin, King James Version, margin.
See JETHRO.
(2) Gideon's eldest son (Jdg 8:20), who was called upon by his father to slay Zebah and Zalmunnah, but "feared, because he was yet a youth." The narrative there (Jdg 8:4 ff) should be connected with that of Jdg 6:34, where Gideon is followed by his clan, and not with that of Jdg 7, where he has 300 picked men. The captives would be taken to Orpah, Gideon's home, and slain there.
(3) Father of Amasa (1 Ki 2:5,32); he was an Ishmaelite according to 1 Ch 2:17 = "Ithra, the Israelite" of 2 Sam 17:25, where "the Ishmaelite" should be read for "the Israelite."
(4) A Jerahmeelite (1 Ch 2:32 twice).
(5) A Judahite (1 Ch 4:17).
(6) A man of Asher (1 Ch 7:38) = "Ithran" of 1 Ch 7:37.
