(tihssh' bite) Resident of an unidentified village, Tishbe, used as a title of Elijah (1 Kings 17:1 ; 1Kings 21:17,1 Kings 21:28 ; 2Kings 1:3,2 Kings 1:8 ; 2 Kings 9:36 ). Tishbite is possibly a corruption of Jabeshite or a class designation (compare the Hebrew toshab which designates a resident alien, Leviticus 25:6 ). See Elijah .
