(1) A Reubenite, brother of Dathan and Abiram (Numbers 26:9).
(2) A son of Simeon (Numbers 26:12; 1 Chronicles 4:24). The name occurs also in the form "Jemuel" (Genesis 46:10; Exodus 6:15). According to Gray (Studies in Hebrew Proper Names), either form is etymologically obscure; but Nemuel is probably correct, for it is easier to account for its corruption into Jemuel than vice versa. The patronymic Nemuelites occurs once (Numbers 26:12).
