(Heb. Chakmoni', חִכְמֹנַי , wise; Sept. Ἀχαμανί v.r. Ἀχαμί,Vulg. Hachamioni), a man only known as the father (or ancestor; comp. 1 Chronicles 27:2) of Jashobeam, the chief of David's warriors (1 Chronicles 11:11, where son of Hachmoni is rendered "HACHMONITE," for which the parallel passage, 2 Samuel 23:8, has "TACHIONITE"); and also of Jehiel, the companion of the princes in the royal household (1 Chronicles 27:32). B.C. considerably ante 1046. Hachmon or Hachmoni was no doubt the founder of a family to which these men belonged: the actual father of Jashobeam was Zabdiel (1 Chronicles 27:2), and he is also said to have belonged to the Korhites (1 Chronicles 12:6); possibly the Levites descended from Korah. But the name Hachmon nowhere appears in the genealogies of the Levites. See Kennicott, Diss. p. 72, 82, who calls attention to the fact that names given in Chronicles with Ben are in Samuel given without the Ben, but with the definite article. A less probable view is that which makes this term a title of office, q. d. counselor. (See JASHOBEAM).
