(Hebrew: square or chariot)

Rechab was the father of Jonadab who, with Jehu, exterminated the followers of Baal (4Kings 10). He bade his descendants not to build houses, not to sow, not to plant vineyards, but to dwell in tents. Their fidelity in obeying these commands was praised by God himself and given as an example to the Jews (Jeremias 35).
