Hushim


Hu’shim (who makes haste).

1. In Gen. 46:23 “the children of Dan” are said to have been Hushim. The name is plural, as if of a tribe rather than an individual. In Num. 26:42 the name is changed to Shuham.

2. A Benjamite, 1 Chron. 7:12; and here again apparently the plural nature of the name is recognized, and Hushim are stated to be “the sons of Aher.”

3. One of the two wives of Shaharaim. 1 Chron. 8:8. (b.c. 1450.)
