NEMUEL

nem'-u-el, ne-mu'-el (nemu'el):ould not show their families nor their stock" (1 Esdras 5:37) = "Nekoda" of Ezr 2:60; Neh 7:62.
(1) A Reubenite, brother of Dathan and Abiram (Nu 26:9).
(2) A son of Simeon (Nu 26:12; 1 Ch 4:24). The name occurs also in the form "Jemuel" (Gen 46:10; Ex 6:15). According to Gray (Studies in Hebrew Proper Names), either form is etymologically obscure; but Nemuel is probably correct, for it is easier to account for its corruption into Jemuel than vice versa. The patronymic Nemuelites occurs once (Nu 26:12).
