    JERIMOTH

    jer'-i-moth (see JEREMOTH, (c)):

    (1) A Benjamite (1 Chronicles 7:7).

    (2) A Benjamite who joined David at Ziklag, or perhaps a Judean (1 Chronicles 12:5)).

    (3) In 1 Chronicles 24:30 = JEREMOTH, (4) (which see).

    (4) A Levite musician in David's time (1 Chronicles 25:4).

    (5) Son of David and father of Mahalath, Rehoboam's wife (2 Chronicles 11:18). He is not mentioned (2 Samuel 3:2-5; 5:14-16; 1 Chronicles 3:1-9; 14:4-7) among the sons of David's wives, so Curtis (Ch, 369) thinks that he was either the son of a concubine, or possibly the name is a corruption of "Ithream" (yithre`am, 1 Chronicles 3:3).

    (6) A Levite overseer in Hezekiah's time (2 Chronicles 31:13).
