SHESHAI

she'-shi (sheshay):

One of the sons of Anak, perhaps an old Hebronite clan name. (Sayce combines the name with Sasu, the root sh-c-h, the Egyptian name for the Syrian Bedouins.) The clan lived in Hebron at the time of the conquest and was expelled by Caleb (Numbers 13:22, Codex Vaticanus Sessei; Codex Alexandrinus Semei; Joshua 15:14, Codex Vaticanus Sousei; Codex Alexandrinus Sousai; Judges 1:10, Codex Vaticanus Sessei; Codex Alexandrinus Geththi).
