HACHMONI, HACHMONITE . Both represent one and the same Heb. word, but in 1 Chronicles 27:32 the latter is translated as a prop. name, ‘Jehiel the son of Hachmoni,’ whereas in 1 Chronicles 11:11 Jashobeam is called ‘a Hachmonite.’ We should probably render it in both cases as a gentilic name. In 2 Samuel 23:8 , which is parallel to 1 Chronicles 11:11 , we have ‘the Tahchemonite ,’ which is probably a textual error (see Adino, Josheb-basshebeth).
