mib'-har (mibhchar, "choice"(?)):
According to 1 Chronicles 11:38, the name of one of David's heroes. No such name, however, occurs in the parallel passage (2 Samuel 23:36). A comparison of the two records makes it probable that mibhchar is a corruption of mitstsbhah = "from Zobah," which completes the designation of the former name, Nathan of Zobah. The concluding words of the verse, Ben-Hagri = "the son of Hagri," will then appear as a misreading of Bani ha-gadhi = "Bani, the Gadite," thus bringing the two records into accord.
