ULAM

u'-lam ('ulam, "preceding"):

(1) A "son"of Peresh; a Manassite clan (1 Chronicles 7:16,17). Lucian reads Elam.

(2) A descendant of Benjamin who had sons, "mighty men of valor" (1 Chronicles 8:39,40). The Septuagint's Codex Vaticanus has Ailam in 1 Chronicles 8:39 and Aileim in 8:40; Codex Alexandrinus has Oulam in both verses, and so Lucian.
