Pining, probably the youngest son of Barzillai the Gileadite (2 Samuel 19:37-40 ). The "habitation of Chimham" (Jeremiah 41:17 ) was probably an inn or khan, which is the proper meaning of the Hebrew Geruth , Rendered "habitation", established in later times in his possession at Bethlehem, which David gave to him as a reward for his loyalty in accompanying him to Jerusalem after the defeat of Absalom ( 1 Kings 2:7 ). It has been supposed that, considering the stationary character of Eastern institutions, it was in the stable of this inn or caravanserai that our Saviour was born (Luke 2:7 ).
