Bible Names H-M: Jaare-oregim




Jaare-oregim in Easton's Bible Dictionary forests of the weavers, a Bethlehemite (2 Sam. 21:19), and the father of Elhanan, who slew Goliath. In 1 Chr. 20:5 called JAIR.

Jaare-oregim in Naves Topical Bible -Father of Elhanan 2Sa 21:19

Jaare-oregim in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE ja'-a-re-or'-e-jim, -or'e-gim (ya`are'oreghim): In 2 Sam 21:19, given as the name of a Bethlehemite, father of Elhanan, who is said to have slain Goliath the Gittite (compare 1 Sam 17). The name is not likely to be a man's name; the second part means "weavers" and occurs also as the last word of the verse in the Massoretic Text, so it is probably a scribal error here due to repetition. The first part is taken to be (1) an error for ya`ir (see JAIR), which is to be read in the parallel section in 1 Ch 20:5; (2) in 2 Sam 23:24 Elhanan is the son of Dodo, also a Bethlehemite, and Klostermann would read here Dodai as the name of Elhanan's father. David Francis Roberts

Jaare-oregim Scripture - 2 Samuel 21:19 And there was again a battle in Gob with the Philistines, where Elhanan the son of Jaareoregim, a Bethlehemite, slew [the brother of] Goliath the Gittite, the staff of whose spear [was] like a weaver's beam.
