mḗ - on´ṓ - thı̄ , mḗ - ō´nṓ - thı̄ , mē - ṓ - nō´thı̄ ( מעונתי , me‛ōnōthai , "my dwellings"): A son of Othniel, nephew of Caleb ( 1 Chronicles 4:14 ). Possibly, as the King James Version margin suggests, and the Vulgate (Jerome's Latin Bible, 390-405 A.D.) and Complutensian Septuagint say, 1 Chronicles 4:13 , 1 Chronicles 4:14 should read "the sons of Othniel, Hathath and Meonothai; and Meonothai begat Ophrah," etc. The latter may be founder of the town of that name.
