1. Son of Barachel the Buzite, of the kindred of Ram. He is introduced abruptly in the history of Job. He was young and had not spoken until Job and his three friends had ceased. His wrath was kindled against Job because he justified himself rather than God, and against his three friends because they had condemned Job though they had not understood his case. The purport of Elihu's address is that God acts in grace and blessing to deliver man from evil, and to chastise and break him down. Job was a righteous man, but needed God's discipline. Job 32 Job 36 .

2. Son of Tohu, and ancestor of Samuel. 1 Samuel 1:1 . Apparently called both ELIAB and ELIEL in 1 Chronicles 6:27,34 .

3. One of the captains of the thousands of Manasseh who resorted to David Ziklag. 1 Chronicles 12:20 .

4. Son of Shemaiah, a Korhite of the family of Obed-edom, a valiant man and one of the door-keepers. 1 Chronicles 26:7 .

5. Brother of David, made ruler in Judah. 1 Chronicles 27:18 . Perhaps the same as ELIAB, No. 3.
