Smith's Bible Dictionary
Reuel

(friend of God) One of the sons of Esau, by his wife Bashemath, sister of Ishmael. (Genesis 36:4,10,13,17; 1 Chronicles 1:36,37) (B.C. about 1790.)

  1. One of the names of Moses' father-in-law. (Exodus 2:18) (B.C. 1530.)
  2. Father of Eliasaph, the leader of the tribe of Gad at the time of the census at Sinai. (Numbers 2:14) (B.C. 1490.)
  3. A Benjamite, ancestor of Elah. (1 Chronicles 9:8)
Easton's Bible Dictionary
Friend of God.

(1.) A son of Esau and Bashemath (Genesis 36:4, 10; 1 Chronicles 1:35).

(2.) "The priest of Midian," Moses' father-in-law (Exodus 2:18)=Raguel (Numbers 10:29). If he be identified with Jethro (q.v.), then this may be regarded as his proper name, and Jether or Jethro (i.e., "excellency") as his official title.

(3.) Numbers 2:14, called also Deuel (1:14; 7:42).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
REUEL

roo'-el (re`u'el, "God is his friend"; the Septuagint Rhagouel):

(1) In the genealogical system Reuel is both a son of Esau by Basemath (Genesis 36:4, 10, 13, 17 1 Chronicles 1:35, 37) and the father of the father-in-law of Moses, Hobab (Numbers 10:29). In the account of the marriage of Zipporah to Moses (Exodus 2:16-21) Jethro seems to be called Reuel (compare HOBAB). The various names of Jethro perplexed the Talmudists, too; some held that his real name was "Hobab," and that Reuel was his father. Reuel is probably a clan name (Gray, "Numbers," ICC), and Hobab is a member of the clan ("son") of Reuel (Numbers 10:29, the King James Version reads "Raguel").

(2) The father of Eliasaph, the prince of Gad (Numbers 2:14), called (by some copyist's mistake) "Deuel" in Numbers 1:14; Numbers 7:42, 47; 10:20. The Septuagint has uniformly Rhagouel.

(3) A Benjamite (1 Chronicles 9:8). Horace J. Wolf
