Tachmonite The

Additional Links

Tach'monite, The. "The Tachmonite that sat in the seat," chief among David's captains, 2 Samuel 23:8, is in 1 Chronicles 11:11, called "Jashobeam an Hachmonite," or, as the margin gives it, "son of Hachmoni." Kennicott has shown that the words translated "he that sat in the seat" are a corruption of Jashobeam, and that "the Tachmonite" is a corruption of the "son of Hachmoni," which was the family, or local name, of Jashobeam. Therefore , he concludes "Jashobeam the Hachmonite" to have been the true reading.
