Heber in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
he'-ber (chebher, "associate" or, possibly, "enchanter";
Eber): A name occurring several times in the Old Testament as
the name of an individual or of a clan.
(1) A member of the tribe of Asher and son of Beraiah (Gen
46:17; Nu 26:45; 1 Ch 7:31 f).
(2) A Kenite, husband of Jael, who deceptively slew Sisera,
captain of the army of Jabin, a Canaanite king (Jdg 4:17;
5:24). He had separated himself from the main body of the
Kenites, which accounts for his tent being near Kedesh, the
place of Sisera's disastrous battle (Jdg 4:11).
(3) Head of a clan of Judah, and son of Mered by his Jewish,
as distinguished from an Egyptian wife. He was father, or
founder, of Soco (1 Ch 4:18).
(4) A Benjamite, or clan or family of Elpaal belonging to
Benjamin (1 Ch 8:17).
(5) Heber, of our Lord's genealogy (Lk 3:35 the King James
Version), better, Eber.
So, the name "Eber," `ebher, in 1 Ch 5:13; 8:22, is not to be
confused with Heber, chebher, as in the foregoing passages.
