(hach' muhn) Clan name meaning, “wisdom.” Original ancestor of an Israelite clan called the Hachmonites. Most translations transliterate the Hebrew clan name as Hachmoni, including the Hebrew ending “i” that indicates membership in the clan or English “ite.” TEV translates Hachmon (1 Chronicles 11:11 ). Jashobeam, leader of David's army, was either a Hachmonite (1 Chronicles 11:11 ) or a Tachmonite (2 Samuel 23:8 ), a copyist having either added or subtracted a “t” in transmitting the clan name. Jehiel, another of David's advisors, also belonged to the clan (1 Chronicles 27:32 ). See Jashobeam ; Jehiel .
