    Jashem in Hitchcock's Bible Names Jashen

    Jashen in Easton's Bible Dictionary sleeping, called also Hashem (1 Chr. 11:34); a person, several of whose sons were in David's body-guard (2 Sam. 23:32).

    Jashen in Naves Topical Bible -Father of one of David's heroes 2Sa 23:32

    Jashen in Smiths Bible Dictionary (sleeping). Bene-Jashen --"sons of Jashen"-- are named in the catalogue of the heroes of David's guard in 2Sa 23:32 (B.C. 1046.)

    Jashen in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE ja'-shen, jash'-en (yashen, "asleep"(?)): Seemingly the father of some of David s thirty valiant men (2 Sam 23:32 f). The Massoretic Text reads "Eliahba the Shaalbonite, the sons of Jashen, Jonathan, Shammah the Hararite, .... " 1 Ch 11:33 f has Eliahba the Shaalbonite, the sons of Hashem the Gizonite, Jonathan the son of Shagee the Hararite .... " It is clear that "sons of" are a dittography of the last three consonants of the previous word. Septuagint, Lucian in 2 Samuel and 1 Chronicles has ho Gouni, "the Gunite," for "the Gizonite," perhaps correctly (compare Gen 46:24; Nu 26:48 for "Guni," "Gunite"). So 2 Sam 23:32 may be corrected thus: "Eliahba the Shaalbonite, Jashen the Gunite, Jonathan the son of Shammah the Hararite." Jashen then becomes one of the thirty = "Hashem" of 1 Ch 11:34.
