Treasury of Scripture

The fifth captain for the fifth month was Shamhuth the Izrahite: and in his course were twenty and four thousand.

1 Chronicles 11:27
Shammoth the Harorite, Helez the Pelonite,

Shammoth the Hararite

1 Chronicles 26:29
Of the Izharites, Chenaniah and his sons were for the outward business over Israel, for officers and judges.

2 Samuel 23:25
Shammah the Harodite, Elika the Harodite,

Shammah the Harodite









(8) The fifth captain for the fifth month.--Rather, the fifth, for the fifth month, was the captain Shamhuth. Shamhuth is called "Shammoth the Harorite" in 1Chronicles 11:27, and "Shammah the Harodite" in 2Samuel 23:25.

The Izrahite.--Heb., ha-yizrah, which is probably a mistake for ha-zarhi, "the Zarhite" (comp. 1Chronicles 27:11; 1Chronicles 27:13), i.e., a member of the Judean clan called Zerah. Harod was his town.

Verse 8. - Shamhuth. For variations in the form of this name, see ch. 11:27; 2 Samuel 23:25. In the former of these passages also we have Harorite in place of our Izrahite, and in the latter Harodite. The Izrahite probably means of the family of Zerah (1 Chronicles 2:4, 6), and of course marks one of the tribe of Judah. The Hebrew הַיִּזְרָחevidently does not justify the form as translated "Izrahite."
