jo-sheb-ba-she'-beth (yoshebh ba-shebheth):
This proper name in the Revised Version (British and American) takes the place of the translation "that sat in the seat" in the King James Version (2 Samuel 23:8). The phrase so rendered is meaningless. The text has evidently suffered corruption. There can be no doubt that a proper name is intended. This, according to the parallel passage in 1 Chronicles 11:11, should be Jashobeam. Some scholars think that this also is a corruption, and by a process of emendation arrive at "Eshbaal" as the correct name (Driver, Hebrew Text of S; SBOT, at the place).
