je-sheb'-e-ab (yeshebh'abh, meaning uncertain):
A Levite of the 14th course (1 Chronicles 24:13). Kittel and Gray (HPN, 24) read with Septuagint, A, "Ishbaal"; the name is omitted in Septuagint (Codex Vaticanus) and the change in Massoretic Text as well as the omission in Septuagint may be due to the word ba`al forming part of the name.
