Treasury of Scripture

Over the camels also was Obil the Ishmaelite: and over the asses was Jehdeiah the Meronothite:

the camels

Job 1:3
His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a very great household; so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the east.

the Ishmaelite

Genesis 47:6
The land of Egypt is before thee; in the best of the land make thy father and brethren to dwell; in the land of Goshen let them dwell: and if thou knowest any men of activity among them, then make them rulers over my cattle.









(30) Over the camels also was Obil the Ishmaelite.--Obil's name means either "owner of camels" or "a good manager of camels," answering exactly to the Arabic 'abil. (Comp. Genesis 37:25; Judges 7:12.) An "Ishmaelite," i.e., an Arab, would be the fittest person for looking after camels.

The asses.--The she-asses. (Comp. Genesis 49:14; Judges 5:10; Zechariah 9:9.) . . .

Verse 30. - Whether the word Obil (אובִיל), is a proper name or not, it signifies "a tender of camels" by derivation. The task suited the Ishmaelite, no doubt! Nothing is known of the Meronothite, nor of the situation of the place called Meronoth, unless anything may be conjectured from Nehemiah 3:7.
