Reuel

Ragu´el or Reuel (friend of God). 1. A son of Esau (; ). 2. The father of Jethro (; ). Some confound him with Jethro; but in the text last cited, he is called the father of Hobab, who seems to have been the same as Jethro. In the same passage, indeed, the daughters of the 'priest of Midian' relate to 'Reuel their father' their adventure with Moses: which might seem to support his identity with Jethro; but it is quite a Scriptural usage to call a grandfather 'father,' and a granddaughter, 'daughter' [HOBAB]. 3. Another person of this name occurs in .
