Ge´shem (rain). One of the enemies of the Jews under Nehemiah (). He was probably a Samaritan, although on some account or other designated an Arabian (), and seems to have been a subaltern officer at Jerusalem. He opposed the designs of the Jewish governor, talking of them as seditious, and turning them into ridicule. Eventually he took part in the plots of Tobiah against the life of Nehemiah (; ), about B.C. 445.
