Meonothai

MEONOTHAI

me-on'-o-thi, me-o'-no-thi, me-o-no'-thi (me`onothai, "my dwellings"):

A son of Othniel, nephew of Caleb (1 Chronicles 4:14). Possibly, as the King James Version margin suggests, and the Vulgate (Jerome's Latin Bible, 390-405 A.D.) and Complutensian Septuagint say, 1 Chronicles 4:13,14 should read "the sons of Othniel, Hathath and Meonothai; and Meonothai begat Ophrah," etc. The latter may be founder of the town of that name.
