Treasury of Scripture

And Mikloth begat Shimeah. And these also dwelled with their brothers in Jerusalem, over against them.

Shimeah

1 Chronicles 9:38
And Mikloth begat Shimeam. And they also dwelt with their brethren at Jerusalem, over against their brethren.

Shimeam









(32) Shimeah is essentially the same word as Shimeam (1Chronicles 9:38). The latter is a mimmated form (i.e., a more ancient form of the noun, with the original ending m).

And these also dwelt with their brethren in Jerusalem, over against them.--Literally, And they also, before their brethren, dwelt in Jerusalem with their brethren. The verse seems to tell us that of all the stock of Gibeon only the branch of Mikloth-Shimeah settled in Jerusalem. When, we are not informed. Some think the reference is to the repeopling of Jerusalem after the Restoration (Nehemiah 11:1). "Before their brethren."--Before in Heb. means east, as behind means west. The clans in question dwelt in Jerusalem, to the east of their fellow-tribesmen in Gibeon.

With their brethren--that is, with the other Benjamite clans settled in Jerusalem (1Chronicles 8:16-28).
