Morrish Bible Dictionary
1. Father of one of Solomon's commissariat officers in Ramoth-gilead. 1 Kings 4:13 .
2. Son of Uri, another like officer in Gilead. 1 Kings 4:19 . At the end of this verse the A.V. reads "He was the only officer which was in the land." This does not seem to agree with 1 Kings 4:13,14 , for those mentioned therein were also on the east of the Jordan. The Hebrew word for 'officer' in 1 Kings 4:19 , though a kindred word, is not the same as in 1 Kings 4:7 and 27, and may be translated 'superintendent.'
