1. City in which the various families of the scribes dwelt. 1 Chronicles 2:55 . Not identified.
2. A descendant of Judah, said to be more honourable than his brethren. He prayed to the God of Israel that He would bless him, and enlarge his border; that God's hand might be with him, and keep him from evil that it might not grieve him. God granted that which he requested. 1 Chronicles 4:9,10 . It is a beautiful instance of individual faith, which rose to the privileges of God's earthly people, and counted on the God of Israel.
