(Vawssh' ni) Personal name perhaps meaning, “weak.” Samuel's son according to Hebrew text of 2 Chronicles 6:28 (KJV), which reads literally, “And sons of Samuel the firstborn Vashni and Abiah.” Modern translations and commentators follow 1 Samuel 8:2 and manuscripts of early versions, taking Vashni as a copyist's change from the similar Hebrew word for “the second” and inserting Joel.
