(Hebrew: he that causes to forget)

One of the twelve tribes of Israel. At the time of the census taken in the Desert of Sinai, the tribe numbered 32,200 men "that were able to go forth to war" (Numbers 1), the smallest number among all the tribes; but at the second census, taken in the Plains of Moab, 52,700 men "twenty years old and upward" are recorded (Numbers 26). Moses assigned a part of territory east of the Jordan to one half of the tribe (Numbers 32), and Josue gave a section in Palestine proper to the remaining half, the boundaries of which are given in Josue 17.
