Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

שְׁמוּאֵל pr.n. Samuel, [Shemuel] (according to 1 Samuel 1:20, i.q. שְׁמוּעֲאֵל “heard of God,” unless it be preferred “name of God,” taking שְׁמוּ as a sing. const. i.q. שֵׁם, compare רֵעַ and רְעוּ, מֵת and מְתוּ, פְּנוּ, פְּנִי i.q. פָּנֶה face [the Scripture derivation of a name must always be the true one]).

(1) the name of a very celebrated judge and prophet of the Hebrews, the son of Elkanah, of the tribe of Ephraim (1 Samuel 1:1) [this is wholly incorrect; he was a Levite].

(2) Another of the same name, also the son of Elkanah, grandfather of Heman, 1 Chronicles 6:13, 18 1 Chronicles 6:18, who is mentioned among the Levites and singers. [But this is the same person as No. 1.]

(3)  Numbers 34:24.

(4)  1 Chronicles 7:2.
