Bashemath [N] [H] [S]


  • The daughter of Ishmael, the last of Esau's three wives ( Genesis 36:3 Genesis 36:4 Genesis 36:13 ), from whose son Reuel four tribes of the Edomites sprung. She is also called Mahalath ( Genesis 28:9 ). It is noticeable that Esau's three wives receive different names in the genealogical table of the Edomites ( Genesis 36 ) from those given to them in the history ( Genesis 26:34 ; 28:9 ).

  • A daughter of Solomon, and wife of Ahimaaz, one of his officers ( 1 Kings 4:15 ).
