JABEZ. 1. A city in Judah occupied by scribes, the descendants of Caleb ( 1 Chronicles 2:55 ). 2. A man of the family of Judah, noted for his ‘honourable’ character ( 1 Chronicles 4:9 ff.); called Ya’bçts , which is rendered as if it stood for Ya’tsçb , ‘he causes pain.’ In his vow ( 1 Chronicles 4:10 ) there is again a play upon his name.
