Treasury of Scripture

Shamer

1 Chronicles 7:32
And Heber begat Japhlet, and Shomer, and Hotham, and Shua their sister.

Shomer









(34) Shamer (pausai form of Shemer) probably identical with Shomer, the second son of Heber (1Chronicles 7:32).

Jehubbah.--Heb. margin has we-Hubbah, "and Hubbah," which is correct according to the prevailing form of this list (and before each name).

Aram is the ordinary name of the Syrians east and west of the Euphrates. It may here designate a clan of half -Aramean extraction.

(35?39) And the sons of his brother Helem.--Apparently the offshoots of Helem, "brother" of Sheraer-Shomer. If we construe brother in the strict sense, we must assume that Helem is the same as Hotham (1Chronicles 7:32), and that one or the other name is corrupt. But Helem may be the name of another chief house of Asher not directly connected with that of Heber. The brotherhood then would be that of the tribe, not of the clan or family.

Verses 34, 35. - Ahi. It seems impossible to decide with certainty whether this is the name of a person or whether, with the vau, which otherwise begins the next word, it should not be translated "his brother," ie. the brother of Japhlet. In ver. 32 the names of three brothers are given, sons of Heber, viz. Japhlet, Shomer, and Hotham. Now, the name Helem, in ver. 35, is supposed to point to this Hotham. If it be so, it would so far be an argument that Ahi, in ver. 34, should be translated "his brother," in correspondence with the undoubted "his brother" of ver. 35. Of no one of the names in these verses is anything further known.
