vash´nı̄ ( ושׁני , washnı̄ , see below; the Septuagint's Codex Vaticanus Σανεί , Saneı́ ; Codex Alexandrinus Σανί , Sanı́ ): Read in 1 Chronicles 6:28 the King James Version (Hebrew 13) as the name of the firstborn son of Samuel. According to 1 Chronicles 6:33 (Hebrew 18) and 1 Samuel 8:2 , Samuel's oldest son was Joel, and the second Abijah. The explanation of this is that in 1 Chronicles 6:28 the word taken then as a proper name is really "and second"; so following Septuagint, Lucian, and Syriac we read (as the Revised Version (British and American)), "And the sons of Samuel: the first-born, Joel, and the second Abijah."
