Hushim [N]

(who makes haste ).

  1. In ( Genesis 46:23 ) "the children of Dan" are said to have been Hushim. The name is plural, as if of a tribe rather than an individual. In ( Numbers 26:42 ) the name is changed to Shuham.
  2. A Benjamite, ( 1 Chronicles 7:12 ) and here again apparently the plural nature of the name is recognized, and Hushim are stated to be "the sons of Aher."
  3. One of the two wives of Shaharaim. ( 1 Chronicles 8:8 ) (B.C. 1450.)

[N] indicates this entry was also found in Nave's Topical Bible
