(Asher) (1) Eighth son of Jacob and Zelpha, handmaid of Lia, Jacob's wife.

(2) One of the 12 tribes of Israel, descended from Aser. Its territory, described in Josue, included 22 cities, one of which is the modern Acre. The fertility of the land gave rise to the saying that in Aser oil flowed as a river. The tribe plays an unimportant part in history.
