(hyoo' sshuh) Personal and place name meaning, “hurry.” Member of tribe of Judah (1 Chronicles 4:4 ) listed along with Bethlehem and thus probably original ancestor of clan who lived in town of Hushah, perhaps modern Husan near Bethlehem. Some Bible students think that in the copying process the name was changed from an original Shuah (1 Chronicles 4:11 ) through transposition of Hebrew letters. Two of David's soldiers came from Hushah: Sibbechai (2 Samuel 21:18 ) and Mebunnai (2 Samuel 23:27 ).
