Bible Names H-M: Jerubbesheth


Jerubbesheth in Easton's Bible Dictionary contender with the shame; i.e., idol, a surname also of Gideon (2 Sam. 11:21).

Jerubbesheth in Hitchcock's Bible Names let the idol of confusion defend itself

Jerubbesheth in Smiths Bible Dictionary (contender with the shame), a name of Gideon. 2Sa 11:21

Jerubbesheth in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE jer-ub-be'-sheth, je-rub'-e-sheth (yerubbesheth, see JERUBBAAL, for meaning): It is found once (2 Sam 11:21) for JERUBBAAL. The word bosheth, "shameful thing," was substituted by later editors of the text for ba`al, "lord," in the text of Jer 3:24; Hos 9:10; in 2 Sam 2:8, etc., we find Ish-bosheth = Eshbaal (Ishbaal) in 1 Ch 8:33; 9:39. The reason for this was reluctant to pronounce the word Ba`al, which had by their time been associated with Canaanitic forms of worship. In 2 Sam 11:21 Septuagint, Lucian, has "Jeroboal," which Septuagint, Codex Vaticanus, has corrupted to "Jeroboam." Compare MERIB- BAAL; MEPHIBOSHETH; and see Ginsburg, New Massoretico-Critical Text of the Hebrew Bible, Intro, 400 ff. For a New Testament case compare Rom 11:4 and see Sanday and Headlam at the place. See JERUBBAAL. David Francis Roberts

Jerubbesheth Scripture - 2 Samuel 11:21 Who smote Abimelech the son of Jerubbesheth? did not a woman cast a piece of a millstone upon him from the wall, that he died in Thebez? why went ye nigh the wall? then say thou, Thy servant Uriah the Hittite is dead also.
