    JEUSH

    (1) A "son" of Esau (Genesis 36:5,14,18; 1 Chronicles 1:35). "The name is thought by some to be identical with that, of an Arabian lion-god Yagut ...., meaning `helper,' whose antiquity is vouched for by inscriptions of Thamud" (Skinner, Gen, 432).

    (2) A Benjamite (1 Chronicles 7:10), but probably a Zebulunite. See Curtis, Chronicles, 145.

    (3) A descendant of King Saul, the King James Version "Jehush" (1 Chronicles 8:39).

    (4) A Gershonite Levite (1 Chronicles 23:10,11).

    (5) A son of King Rehoboam (2 Chronicles 11:19).
