Strong's #250 - אֶזְרָחִי
Ezraite = “a native (as arising out of the soil)”
1) Ezrahite, of the family of Zerach
אֶזְרָחִי patron. n. [Ezrahite], a descendant of Ezrach (אֶזְרָח); used of Ethan, 1 Kings 5:11; Psalms 89:1 and of Heman, Psalms 88:1. Both of these are said, 1 Chronicles 2:6, to be the descendants of Zarah (זֶרַת) the son of Judah; and thus אֶזְרָח is to be taken only as another form of the same name, used only in its patronymic. As to the family of these men, see my arguments against Bertholdt (Einleit. p. 1974); Allg. Lit. Zeit. Ergänzungsbl. 1816, p. 646.
