chap'-man (plural 'anshe ha-tarim):
Word used only once in the King James Version (2 Chronicles 9:14, the American Standard Revised Version "the traders"; compare also 1 Kings 10:15 the Revised Version (British and American), where the Hebrew uses the same expression). The English word means "merchant"; compare the verb "to chaffer," and the German Kaufmann. The Hebrew means "those who go about" as merchants.
