jam´brı̄ ( οἱ υἱοὶ Ἰαμβρείν , hoi huioı́ Iambreı́n ; 1 Macc 9:36-41): The sons of Jambri are said to have come out of Medeba (originally Med'ba), a city of the Moabites, and subsequently a possession of the Amorites, and to have carried off John, the brother of Jonathan, who succeeded Judas Maccabeus as leader of the Jews. The Israelites got possession of the place and assigned it to the tribe of Reuben. No mention is made elsewhere of the Jambri. In Josephus (Ant. , XIII , i, 2) they are called "sons of Amaraeus.»
