    Beeri in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE be-e'-ri (be'eri, "expounder"): (1) Father of Judith, one of Esau's wives (Gen 26:34). (2) The father of the prophet Hosea (Hos 1:1).

    Beeri in Wikipedia was the father of the prophet Hosea.[1] Jewish tradition says that he only uttered a few words of prophecy, and as they were insufficient to be embodied in a book by themselves they were incorporated within the book of Isaiah, viz., verses 19 and 20 of the 8th chapter. As such, Beeri is considered a prophet in Judaism.[2] Another Beeri was the father of Judith, one of the wives of Esau (Genesis 26:34), the same as Adah (Gen. 36:2). In Hebrew, the word "Be'e'ri" literally means "my well" as in, a well of water-an important source of life in the desert. He is also considered holy by Muslims.

    Beeri Scripture - Genesis 26:34 And Esau was forty years old when he took to wife Judith the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Bashemath the daughter of Elon the Hittite:
