jō - sheb - ba - shē´beth ( בּשּבת ישׁב , yōshēbh ba - shebheth ): This proper name in the Revised Version (British and American) takes the place of the translation "that sat in the seat" in the King James Version ( 2 Samuel 23:8 ). The phrase so rendered is meaningless. The text has evidently suffered corruption. There can be no doubt that a proper name is intended. This, according to the parallel passage in 1 Chronicles 11:11 , should be Jashobeam. Some scholars think that this also is a corruption, and by a process of emendation arrive at "Eshbaal" as the correct name (Driver, Hebrew Text of S; SBOT , at the place).
