  3. The father of Amasa, captain-general of Absalom's army. (B.C. 1023.) Jether is another form of ITHRA. (2 Samuel 17:25) He is described in (1 Chronicles 2:17) as an Ishm'lite, which again is more likely to be correct than the "Isr'lite" of the Hebrew in (2 Samuel 17:1) ...
  4. The son of Jada, a descendant of Hezron, of the tribe of Judah. (1 Chronicles 2:32)
  5. The son of Ezra. (1 Chronicles 2:32)
  6. The chief of a family of warriors of the line of Asher, and father of Jephunneh. (1 Chronicles 7:38) He is probably the same as ITHRAN in the preceding verse.
