    NEMUEL

    nem'-u-el, ne-mu'-el (nemu'el):ould not show their families nor their stock" (1 Esdras 5:37) equals "Nekoda" of Ezra 2:60; Nehemiah 7:62.

    (1) A Reubenite, brother of Dathan and Abiram (Numbers 26:9).

    (2) A son of Simeon (Numbers 26:12; 1 Chronicles 4:24). The name occurs also in the form "Jemuel" (Genesis 46:10; Exodus 6:15). According to Gray (Studies in Hebrew Proper Names), either form is etymologically obscure; but Nemuel is probably correct, for it is easier to account for its corruption into Jemuel than vice versa. The patronymic Nemuelites occurs once (Numbers 26:12).
