Harodite

HARODITE

ha'-rod-it (charodhi):

Two of David's heroes, Shamma and Elika, are so called (2 Samuel 23:25). Septuagint omits the second name. In 1 Chronicles 11:27, the first is called "Shammoth the Harorite," while the second is omitted. "Harorite" is a clerical error for "Harodite," the Hebrew letter daleth ("d") being taken for the Hebrew letter resh ("r"). Possibly Harodite may be connected with the well of HAROD (which see).
