Zimran in Naves Topical Bible -A son of Abraham Ge 25:2; 1Ch 1:32

Zimran in Smiths Bible Dictionary (celebrated), the eldest son of Keturah. Ge 25:2; 1Ch 1:32 His descendants are not mentioned, nor is any hint given that he was the founder of a tribe. (B.C. 1855.)

Zimran in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE zim'-ran (zimran, from zemer, "wild sheep" or "wild goat," the ending -an being gentilic; Skinner, Genesis, 350): Son of Abraham and Keturah (Gen 25:2; 1 Ch 1:32). The various manuscripts of the Septuagint give the name in different forms, e.g. in Gen A, Zebran; Codex Sinaiticus Zemran; Codex Alexandrinus(1) Zembram; D(sil) Zombran; and Lucian Zemran; in Chronicles, Codex Vaticanus has Zembran, Codex Alexandrinus Zemran, Lucian Zemran (compare Brooke and McLean's edition of the Septuagint for Genesis). Hence, some have connected the name with Zabram of Ptol. vi.7,5, West of Mecca; others with the Zamareni of Pliny (Ant. vi.158) in the interior of Arabia; but according to Skinner and E. Meyer (see Gunkel, Gen3, 261) these would be too far south. Curtis (Chronicles, 72) says the name is probably to be identified with the "Zimri" of Jer 25:25. It would then be the name of a clan, with the mountain sheep or goat as its totem. See TOTEMISM. David Francis Roberts

Zimran in Wikipedia Zimran (Hebrew: זִמְרָן ; "vine dresser; celebrated; song;"), also known as Zambran.[1] was according to the Hebrew Bible the first son of Abraham, the patriarch of the Israelites, and Keturah whom he wed after the death of Sarah.[2][3] Zimran had five other brothers, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak, and Shuah.[4] Josephus tells us that "Abraham contrived to settle them in colonies; and they took possession of Troglodytis[5] and the country of Happy Arabia, as far as it reaches to the Red Sea."[6] Abraham, in all probability, tried to keep them apart from Isaac to avoid conflict while fulfilling God's commission to spread out and inhabit the globe.[7][8][9] For such reasons Zimran has also been tentatively identified by some with the Arabian town of Zabran, between Meeca and Medina.[10] According to the Book of Jasher, the children of Zimran were Abihen, Molich and Narim.

Zimran Scripture - 1 Chronicles 1:32 Now the sons of Keturah, Abraham's concubine: she bare Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah. And the sons of Jokshan; Sheba, and Dedan.

Zimran Scripture - Genesis 25:2 And she bare him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah.
