Carmi in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
kar'-mi (karmi, "fruitful," "noble"):
(1) A son of Reuben who came to Egypt with Jacob (Gen 46:9; Ex
6:14; 1 Ch 5:3). Also the name of a family of which Carmi was
the head (Nu 26:6).
(2) A Judahite (1 Ch 2:7), son of Zabdi, according to Josh
7:1, and father of Achan, who is given the name of "Achar" in
1 Ch 2:7. This last form "Achar" is preferred to the usual
"Achan" in order to bring out the play on the Hebrew word for
"troubler." The Hebrew runs `akhar `okher yisra'el, "Achar,
the troubler of Israel." As regards the phrase "the sons of
Carmi" (1 Ch 2:7), Carmi is probably to be taken as the son of
Zimri (= Zabdi, Josh 7:1). The Targum, however, has "Carmi who
is Zimri." The Septuagint identifies Zimri and Zabdi.
(3) In 1 Ch 4:1, Carmi, elsewhere called son of Zabdi or
Zimri, is made son of Judah; but Wellhausen correctly changes
"Carmi" to "Chelubai" (compare 1 Ch 2:9).
