    Mebunnai in Naves Topical Bible -One of David's guards 2Sa 23:27

    Mebunnai in Smiths Bible Dictionary (building of Jehovah). In this form appears, In one passage only --2Sam 23:27 --the name of one of David's guard, who is elsewhere called SIBBECHAI, 2Sa 21:18; 1Ch 20:4 or SIBBECAI, 1Ch 11:29; 27:11 in the Authorized Version.

    Mebunnai in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE me-bun'-i, me-bun'-a-i (mebhunnay, "well-built"): One of David's "braves" (2 Sam 23:27). In 2 Sam 21:18 he is named "Sibbechai" (the Revised Version (British and American) "Sibbecai"), and is there mentioned as the slayer of a Philistine giant. The Revised Version (British and American) spelling occurs in 1 Ch 11:29, the King James Version "Sibbechai" in 1 Ch 20:4 (compare 2 Sam 21:18); and in 1 Ch 27:11 the Revised Version (British and American) spelling recurs, where this person is mentioned as captain of the 8th course of the 12 monthly courses that served the king in rota. Scribal error, and the similarity in Hebrew spelling of the two forms accounts for the difference in spelling. the Revised Version (British and American) consistently tries to keep this right.
